They have been recorded and released on many vinyl records and compact discs.
The young singers in the choir receive real vocal mastership schooling. It is thus natural that some of them choose singing as a profession, while the rest cherish their love for music throughout their whole life.

GIUSEPPE VERDI - DUETS FROM OPERAS - NICOLA GHIUSELEV - ALEXANDRINA PENDATCHANSKA - VLADIMIR STOYANOV

GIUSEPPE VERDI - DUETS FROM OPERAS - NICOLA GHIUSELEV - ALEXANDRINA PENDATCHANSKA - VLADIMIR STOYANOV
ID: GD202
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Opera & Vocal Collection
Subcollection: Voices and Orchestra

The famous bass Nicola Ghiuselev performs together with the young and already celebrated singers Alexandrina Pendatchanska and Valdimir Stoyanov duets from some of the most loved and widely performed Verdi operas. Still fairly unusual as a genre, this CD of opera ensemble excerpts offers the opportunity of getting to know and appreciating the vocalists' artistic mastery from a different point of view. The duets feature the musicality of the participating couples, alongside with their ability to co-ordinate and combine phrases, moods, feelings and to convey the protagonist's characteristic states, expressed in a harmonious musical sound. They depict vividly Leonora's soul, torn by grief, seeking for Padre Guardiano's kind and wise support; Attila, the cruel warrior and barbarian conqueror, who gradually realises the urgent plea of Ezio, the Roman, trying to convince him to have mercy on his native Italy. Each of the duets contains dramatic and psychological clashes and they all demonstrate the performers' unity, achieved by the soprano Pendatchanska, baritone Stoyanov and Nicola Ghiuselev, whom we hear in all recordings, with exquisite brilliance, both vocal and emotional, and perfect sense of musicality. The CD of Verdi opera duets is original not only for the idea and its realisation but also for the selection of musical excerpts which combine bass with soprano or baritone.

PAVEL GERDJIKOV - Opera Arias & Duets

PAVEL GERDJIKOV - Opera Arias & Duets
ID: GD331
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Opera & Vocal Collection
Subcollection: Voices and Orchestra

The Bulgarian opera school is well-known throughout the world. Many Bulgarian opera singers perform at the most renowned opera stages and impress with their performance. One of them is the bass Pavel Gerdjikov. What makes him different from other famous Bulgarian singers is that he builds his career mainly in Bulgaria along with his numerous guest-performances which have made him world-famous.
Pavel Gerdjikov has taken an interest in music ever since his early childhood: he had violin and piano lessons, played in orchestras, sang in choirs, conducted… He studied at the Sofia Academy of Music under Prof. Anna Todorova and Prof. Ilia Yosifov and as he admits himself, many of his teachers in theoretical subjects left a lasting influence upon him: Prof. Stoyan Djudjev, Lyubomir Pipkov, Dragan Kardjiev. His first appointment was in the Berlin Comische Oper. In 1962 he was enlisted with the Sofia Opera and since then he has participated in all its productions. He has performed with the greatest opera names in Bulgaria: Lyubomir Bodurov, Dimitar Uzunov, Nikolai Ghiaurov, Nikola Nikolov, Alexandrina Milcheva, Raina Kabaivanska, Valeri Popova, Dimitar Petkov, Assen Selimsky, Milkana Nikolova, Liliana Bareva … He has worked with renowned conductors and directors in many countries world-wide: in almost all big European opera theatres and stages, in Japan, Australia, America. In one of his interviews Pavel Gerdjikiv mentions some of his participations: Don Juan - the performances in Salzburg with the Mozarteum Orchestra, The Queen of Spades in Gleinborn, some of his concerts in Melbourne and Sydney, the Tchaikovsky recital at the Richter Festival in Moscow. In the Mozart Sal in Vienna he sang in Shostakovich’s 14th Symphony, which was a premiere of the work outside the then USSR.
His repertoire includes all famous traditional bass parts. But besides them, he participates as a soloist in Bulgarian opera and cantata-oratorial works. He is deeply convinced that “it is impossible for a person to become a complete actor, singer or musician if he lacks in his own national musical culture… When I started studying at the Academy, I sang songs by Dobri Hristov, Pancho Vladigerov, Lyubomir Pipkov, Goleminov. After that I started singing the Fourth Symphony and The Boyana Master by Konstantin Iliev, The Apology of Socrates by Simeon Pironkov, Pentagram for bass and orchestra by Ivan Marinov. Still later I turned to the songs cycle “Foreign Poets” by Lyubomir Pipkov, and then I began to get interested in Shostakovich, his 13th and 14th Symphony… Thanks to the Bulgarian music, I began to get interested in Honegger, Bartok, Britten, Shostakovich (also the songs). Bulgarian music provoked me and opened my mind to the foreign contemporary music.
Pavel Gerdjikov is also an opera director. His preferences in this field are connected not only with the classical opera repertoire, but also with contemporary Bulgarian and foreign music. Besides developing his career as a singer and a director, Pavel Gerdjikov devotes a lot of time to his teaching activity. In 1970 he started teaching at the Academy of Music in Sofia and he is still one of the most loved teachers among the students. This is not surprising, having in mind that he is a great actor and a highly-accomplished person, with an affinity to the refined style of speaking. His students have the opportunity to know a really encyclopaedic personality, who reveals to them the vast world of art.
