ID: GD226
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano and Clarinet

Petko Radev is a phenomenon in the musical performing art of Bulgaria. For several decades now he has managed, thanks to his talent and impressing experience, to stay at the summit of performance as clarinetist. Together with the pianist Maria Prinz, another perfect musician, he presents in this CD a selected programme interpreted with taste, which begins with the splendid Sonata for Clarinet and Piano by Brahms. In it the artistic class of the duo stands out. The CD ends with the remarkable piece of the Bulgarian composer and bassoonist Marin Valtchanov. Petko Radev makes an exceptionally strong impression with his highly individual manner of phrasing and sound expression, as well as with the beauty and the specific melodiousness of the tone - mild, subtle and expressive. He has mastered to perfection the secrets of his instrument and this permits him to create a picturesque, emotional, temperamental music. This kind of music cannot be forgotten. The sonatas by Brahms and Poulenc demonstrate the artistic freedom and interpreting skills of Petko Radev and his partner. Maria Prinz matches her part with the clarinet with a lot of taste and precision, without imposing but at the same time attracting delicately the interest towards the piano.

There are very few works for violin and guitar and part of them, unfortunately, have already been forgotten.

This is the approach of the violinist Jochen Brusch and the guitarist Finn Svit.

JEAN-MARIE LECLAIR - Six sonatas for Two Violas, Op.12 - Dimitar Penkov & Johannes Flieder

JEAN-MARIE LECLAIR - Six sonatas for Two Violas, Op.12 - Dimitar Penkov & Johannes Flieder
ID: GD212
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Viola

The CD includes the sonatas for two violas by the French composer Jean-Marie Leclair. It reveals the wealth and the unique beauty of the viola art from the age of the French Classicism. As it happened often during this period, Leclair began his artistic career as a ballet-dancer in France and Italy. Simultaneously with the dance he practised the violin and became a famous violinist, member of the Royal String Orchestra and author of a number of compositions for stringed instruments. The recorded 6 sonatas were created in the late 1740s in Paris. They are magnificent works which give a right idea of the development of the performing art of the above-mentioned period and impress with their melodic inventiveness and virtuosity. Composed as a three- or four-movement sonata cycle, they combine features of the Baroque polyphonic way of thinking with exquisite interweaving of the voices and distinctly expressed harmonic texture. The specific steadiness and contrast, characteristic of the Classicism, have a particularly great emotional impact on the audience. The music radiates calmness and attracts not only with its melodiousness but with its elegance too. The performance of the violists Johannes Flieder (violist-soloist since 1980 of the Viennese symphonic orchestra) and the Bulgarian Dimitar Penkov (who in 1983 settled in Hannover and gives concerts throughout Europe) without doubt is an example for interpreting this kind of music. The two musicians play on splendid instruments made by great masters. Violists of highest level, Flieder and Penkov have penetrated deep into the style and content of the compositions. They achieve complete creative synchrony and lead their parts skillfully transforming them into garlands of melodies, which radiate a true esthetic pleasure.

THE ROMANTIC VIOLIN - Sergiu SCHWARTZ, violin - Ruzhka CHARAKCHIEVA, piano

THE ROMANTIC VIOLIN - Sergiu SCHWARTZ, violin - Ruzhka CHARAKCHIEVA, piano
ID: GD211
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

The Bulgarian public already knows the violinist Sergiu Schwartz and a number of young violinists have received priceless advice during his master classes. Mr. Schwartz was born in Romania but now lives in Florida, USA. He is a pupil of the Bucharest School of Music, of Rubin Academy in Tel Aviv, of Guildhall School of Music in London and Juilliard School in New York, and is one of the most successful violinists, invited to perform with the most famous orchestras and at prestigious festivals. In this recording he plays on the ex Wilhelmi Lorenzo Storioni violin, made in Cremona in 1780. The idea to bring together some of the most loved both by the public and the performers compositions for violin from the 19th century is accomplished masterly by Sergiu Schwartz and Ruzhka Charakchieva who form a magnificent ensemble. Especially strong is their interpretation of the big sonatas by Brahms - No. 3 in D minor, and by Cesar Franck - in A major, which are basic for every well-known violinist. Dominating in them are the style and the mastered emotion, typical for these composers. At the same time there is a feeling of stability and getting deep to the heart of the message of these works. Sergiu Schwartz has a very beautiful, warm, expressive tone, whose vibrations are in harmony with the emotional content of the performed music. In each virtuoso piece, Schwartz and Charaktchieva emphasize the diversity of ideas and the strength of their personalities as musicians, perfectly synchronized in this programme.

"NANOUK L'ESQUIMAU" & "DRACULA" - Music Chrstian Leroy - Metarythmes de I'air
ID: GD205
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Film Music

This release demonstrates a tendency toward including ever more spheres of the musical art in the company's catalogue. It presents music by Christian Leroy (b.1952), the Belgian composer and founder of the famous trio Metarythmes de l'air. Later it was transformed into a quintet in which besides Christian Leroy participate Philippe Saucez, Jose Bedeur, and Jeannot Gillis. The ensemble became famous for its international performances and its spirit for experimenting. Leroy is well known as author of the music for modern synthetic shows and is sought after by eminent poets, painters and directors. His music for the film Nanouk L'Esquimau (shot in 1921) through the skillful use of the quintet renders the atmosphere and the nature of the extreme North. Leroy has an amazing insight for sound, which he treats like expression of colours, and for combinations of sounds, radiating certain impressions (morning in the North, the sun shining in the eyes of the Eskimo children, etc.). Both with Nanouk l'Esquimau and Dracula (shot in 1931) Leroy revives the tradition to make the sound-track on live, to illustrate feelings and conditions through music and in this way sends us back to the age of the silent movie and the light music. In fact Dracula (directed by Tod Browning) is the first of a series of pictures on this topic. The fragments recorded on the CD give an idea about the mastership of Leroy and the performers in the genre of film music.
