NIGHTINGALES - VASSIL ARNAUDOV - SOFIA CHAMBER CHOIR

NIGHTINGALES - VASSIL ARNAUDOV - SOFIA CHAMBER CHOIR
ID: GD195
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choir

The CD includes 23 songs performed by the female chamber choir founded in 1966 and bearing the name of the great choral conductor Vassil Arnaudov after his death. A number of the songs have been practised and sung many times under his direction and it is in this sense that the CD is of retrospective and commemorative character. The ensemble demonstrates its great scope of repertoire, performing works from the Renaissance, Classicism, and the 20th century. Many of the works have long become emblematic for the choir. The Vassil Arnaudov Sofia Chamber Choir is also deeply connected with the Bulgarian compositional output. Some of the works have been performed for the first time by the choir.

Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choir

This is the second album of the Bulgarian Choral Art series (Vol. 1 - GD 244). The programme includes works by Bulgarian composers, created as arrangements on the basis of original folk melodies or inspired by the Bulgarian folk music traditions. Ever since their foundation, the choirs in Bulgaria included in their repertoires mainly medleys of Bulgarian folk songs. Since then dates the close connection between choral creativity and performance, and the folk song became one of the main intonational sources. Many of the folk-based songs thus created became emblematic for Bulgarian choral art.

The first half of the 20th century marks the appearance of a number of talented and prolific composers and musicians in Bulgarian musical culture. One of them is Petko Stainov (1986-1977) - a composer, pedagogue, and musical activist. Petko Stainov was born in Kazanlak, which was then famous for its music traditions. After hurting one of his eyes, he lost his sight completely when he was 11. In 1915 he graduated from the Institute for the Blind in Sofia. Then he studied piano with Andrei Stoyanov and made his early attempts at recording. He furthered his studies in Germany and after returning to Bulgaria played an active part in the country's music life. His first major work was the Thracian Dances symphonic suite in three movements (1925). Later he added an additional movement to the suite, Mechkarsko (The Bear's Dance, 1926). His other works include the symphonic poems A Legend (1927), and Thrace (1937), the symphonic suite A Fairy Tale (1930), Symphonic Scherzo (1930), two symphonies (1945 and 1949), etc. Along with his symphonic work, he also created remarkable choral pieces - from songs for different choral formations up to large-scope dramatic ballads. In both genres he adapted the expressive means of the European musical tradition to the Bulgarian vision of the world. He thus created a musical style of his own combining in a perfect manner Bulgarian rhythm and tunes with European musical trends
The present release features some of the composer's symphonic and choral works, recorded by the best Bulgarian orchestras and choirs.

The conductor Vassil Arnaudov is an example of high musical culture and mastership in the development of Bulgarian conductor art. Even today, 12 years after his death, we still remember his top achievements. During his creative art he visited many places in Bulgaria so as to help a lot of conductors and choirs. He passed his knowledge with deep love to his students, and a number of them have become famous choir conductors. His greatest achievement is with the Sofia Chamber Choir and the “Rodina” Choir in Rousse. Part of the magnificent performances of the Sofia Chamber Choir have been included in the present release, which is dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Vassil Arnaudov’s birth. The programme features Bulgarian composers, whom the conductor had a great respect for. His collaboration with different composers has often provoked the creation of works specially written for the Sofia Chamber Choir. Admirers of choral singing will find some of them in the present release.

The composer and music pedagogue Alexander Tekeliev is the author of musical scenic works, 2 oratorios, vocal and symphonic works, symphonies for string orchestra, chamber and instrumental works, vocal cycles, solo and choral songs; music for children, solo songs for children; arrangements for folk choirs, soundtracks to films, etc. He studied at the Prof. Pancho Vladigerov State Academy of Music in Sofia and completed his master degree in composition with Prof. Vesselin Stoyanov. Alexander Tekeliev furthered his studies in composition and orchestration in Budapest with Attila Bosai (1980) and in Paris with Michel Filippo (1982). Since 1977 he has been teaching at the Prof. Pancho Vladigerov State Academy of Music and since 1991 he is Professor of Composition and Symphony Orchestration.
A great part of his works have been published in Bulgaria and throughout the world and many of them have been performed in France, Italy, Greece, Japan, Hungary, Portugal, Russia, Ukraine, Sweden, Poland, Germany, Austria, Mexico, Norway, etc.
The three compositions which are included in the present album differ greatly regarding emotional impact and expressive means. While Roots is entirely influenced by the unique Bulgarian way of singing and spirit, Symphony - Requiem No. 4 is a powerful work, dedicated to the victims of terrorism. It was inspired by the tragic events of September 11th, 2001 in New York. Even though the composer uses again the expressive means of the specific folk voices, their purpose is to reinforce the author’s suggestion of the universal tragedy. The third piece Happy Birthday is written in the style of a playful joke. The motif of the well-known song appears from behind some familiar tunes by Liszt, Puccini, Strauss, Mozart, Offenbach, Tchaikovsky… It is full of humour, ingenuity, virtuosity and profound command of the art of composing.
