ESCAPE VELOCITY - Benjamin Wallfisch, composer

ESCAPE VELOCITY - Benjamin Wallfisch, composer
ID: QTZ2049
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano and Clarinet

Described by Humphrey Burton on BBC Radio 3 as "a major new name on the new music horizon", Benjamin Wallfisch's fast-growing list of large-scale orchestral, vocal and chamber works shows him to be a serious composer for our times. Over thirty works have been commissioned to date.
A 2005 commission from Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra was the genesis of the symphonic movement entitled Speed which displays the juxtaposing of extremes in Benjamin Wallfisch's language "great energy contrasted with slow-moving, long-breathed and yearning melody. His first String Quartet was composed for the Belcea in 2001, followed by a second for the Coull. His works outside the concert hall include a major ballet score entitled 21, commissioned by the Rambert Dance Company and premiered at London's Sadler's Wells, and a feature film score for Thomas Vinterberg's and Lars von Trier's Dear Wendy, nominated as "Discovery of the Year" in the 2005 World Soundtrack Awards. From his Opus 1, the luminous and glistening Sudden Light (commissioned by the Manchester Camerata), to his latest works including the stratospheric Escape Velocity, a piece which received its premiere the 2006 BBC Proms, there is a consistent, compelling integrity and a palpable, powerful personality.
He begins a new work by building a strong idea of its overall structure into which he feeds ideas and 'elements which all share the same DNA', and where everything, from the overall rhythmic impetus to the tiniest melodic cell, justifies its existence through its place in a complex network of interconnections. Characteristically, he places emotion at the core of the music, along with a clarity of message that must be communicable, and he taps into a rich and instinctive vein of melody which is both attractive and challenging. Ben's music is, by design, vivid and disciplined, passionate and intense.
He has also built an important parallel career as a conductor and believes that conducting, just like composition, is creative, working to achieve a clearly defined vision that must be communicated with respect and conviction.

ID: QTZ2083

Type: CD
Subcollection: Chamber Orchestra

J.S. Bach and Alfred Schnittke may not immediately strike the listener as obvious musical companions. Yet there are numerous important parallels between the works on this disc. Alfred Schnittke was fascinated with musical heritage; he appropriated earlier styles and musical quotations to create his own unique brand of ‘polystylism’. In the case of his celebrated Concerto Grosso No.1 it was, of course the music of the Baroque on which he relied most heavily. What better way to illuminate Baroque pastiche, than by recording it alongside a work from that era.

MARIN GOLEMINOV - Compositions

MARIN GOLEMINOV - Compositions
ID: GD129
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: String instruments

The release is dedicated to the 90th anniversary of Academician Marin Goleminov, the classic of Bulgarian school of composing. It contains four works among which the String Quartet No 3 "Old-Bulgarian" has been a repertoire work for decades now. Written in the 1940s, it is conceptually related to some of his most famous opuses like the dance drama Nestinarka (The Fire-Dancer) and Symphonic Variations on a Theme by Dobri Hristov. The String Quartet No. 7 is from the 70s and bears the marks of Goleminov's evolution of style. The two concert pieces are from the 80s and were inspired by the art of flutist Simeon Shterev and oboist Georgi Zhelyazov. They demonstrate the virtuoso command of compositional and technique devices, of the orchestral writing, Goleminov's ability to refract elements of the aleatoric and sonata, polyphonic and post-realist music through his outstanding individuality.

LAZAR NIKOLOV - COMPOSITIONS

LAZAR NIKOLOV - COMPOSITIONS
ID: GD149
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

Lazar Nikolov (b. 1922) has included in this CD three works created in the 1990-1992 period, performed at the New Bulgarian Music review and in concert. His music has been marked as avant-guard and referred to the latest trends of 20th century compositional output. In his latest works the composer synthesises devices and techniques of serial, atonal and aleatoric music. The use of Bulgarian metres and modes has always lent a specific, national character to his art which has become a model of innovative thinking. Of particular originality is the composition Metamorphoses No. 4 for 12 violoncellos, dedicated to Prof. Zdravko Yordanov. This is yet another proof of Nikolov's ability to work with timbres, to discover sonorities and new performer's techniques.

ALEXANDER YOSSIFOV - COMPOSITIONS

ALEXANDER YOSSIFOV - COMPOSITIONS
ID: GD161
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: String instruments

The CD of the prominent Bulgarian composer Alexander Yossifov comprises works for piano duos - an area in which he presents himself with original ideas. After the success of his opuses for two pianos and four-handed piano, he turned to experimenting with bigger keyboard formations. This resulted in works such as the Symphony Concertante for two piano duos and orchestra of 24 pianos (24 pianists or respectively 48 hands) which has attracted the attention of the Japanese audiences and musical critics alike. The composition was unanimously defined as a unique musical piece of the 20th century. Yossifov, who is the author of operas, ballets, music for children, symphonies and instrumental pieces (more than 1200 in number) ceaselessly seeks to give new meaning through innovative expressive devices and impressive timbre nuances. A creative artist of rich experience and mastery of constructing the musical form, he manages to find the balance between homogeneous instruments - the pianos, as well as between strings and a keyboard duo. In the present recording one can hear the wonderful Variations for Four-Handed Piano based on the well-known Bulgarian National-Revival song "Hubava si moya goro". In the Ballad for Two Four-Handed Pianos the author interweaves with virtuosity Bulgarian national rhythms and characteristic elements from the Japanese music (originally the piece was created for the Japanese duo Kodama and duo Ganevs). The large-scaled composition Concerto for Four-Handed Piano, String Orchestra and Percussion, brings eloquent evidence to Yossifov's remarkable melodic and rhythmic invention.
