RICHARD STRAUSS - Works for Piano - LUDMIL ANGELOV, piano

RICHARD STRAUSS - Works for Piano - LUDMIL ANGELOV, piano
ID: GD196
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

The CD presents three of Richard Strauss earliest compositions, performed by Ludmil Angelov. They clearly show the stylistic relationship between the great German masters of the piano miniature and the sonata and Richard Strauss - in the manner of constructing the pieces, of fusing the melodies, in the wealth of harmonic and metro-rhythmic ideas. The pianist shows both the classical clarity of the four-part sonata and the romantic dreams and aspirations contained the exquisite programme pieces from opus 9. Ludmil Angelov, who has been formed as a brilliant interpreter of the romantic style, recreates with great mastery and much poetry the rich imagery of Richard Strauss, fills with mood and various nuances the works, thus demonstrating their beauty and the spontaneity of feelings of the young Strauss. The recordings give an opportunity for music lovers to come to know better Richard Strauss' works from the early 1980s, the time of his maturity and study, of getting ready for the great music he was to create i

NA TRAPEZA - T. SPASSOV, kaval - N.ILIEV, clarinet: Bulgarian folk music and improvisations

NA TRAPEZA - T. SPASSOV, kaval - N.ILIEV, clarinet: Bulgarian folk music and improvisations
ID: GD207

Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Folk Music

A chance meeting thousands of kilometers away from Bulgaria provoked this abundance of sounds and ideas, this musical "conspiracy" between two musicians belonging to two different generations yet equally sharing their love for the traditional Bulgarian folk music. This meeting gave birth to the programme entitled Nа Trapeza.
Nikola Iliev belongs to that generation of musicians who grew up with the music of the wedding orchestras. Together with this, he received classical music education, first at the Plovdiv School of Music and after that, at the State Academy of Music in Sofia as pupil of Prof. Petko Radev (a soloist of long standing in the Milan La Scala and the Sofia Philharmonic). Theodosii Spassov, on the other hand, graduated from the School of Folk Singing in Kotel and from the Academy for Music and Dance Arts in Plovdiv. The two performers are representatives of two different systems of education and schools of playing! And while Nikola Iliev introduces in traditional music the classical sound-production (the clarinetists from the older generation play with an open tone, reminiscent of the bagpipe and the zurna) and elements from the European form-building, Theodosii Spassov follows the same process, yet in the reverse direction - from the pure, unsophisticated folk music to jazz, pop music and even to classical musical forms.
Na Trapeza is a unique professional achievement because of the spontaneity of the idea and its practical realization, the incredible synchrony in the two performers' musical ideas and the brilliant improvisations. The uniqueness of the release lies in the fact that the musicians have never rehearsed or discussed the music they perform. The recorded melodies date as far back as their childhood although they have never played together. Moreover, the traditional accompanying band has also been excluded. The two players take turns in the performance of the leading melody and harmony
Na Trapeza is like a reunion between friends, who have not seen each other for a long time and have too many things to share!


Theodosii Spassov - kaval; Nikola Iliev - clarinet
Special guest: Todor Todorov (vocals)

Recorded in the Sts. Cyril and Methodius Bulgarian Church, New York, January 1999

ID: GD226

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.

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.
