ROMANTIC MUSIC FOR CELLO AND PIANO

ROMANTIC MUSIC FOR CELLO AND PIANO
ID: GD346
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano and Cello

Diliana Momtchilova and Lora Tchekoratova have recorded a very interesting programme. They have chosen famous virtuosic works, some of them composed initially for violin and guitar (piano) - Paganini’s Variations, or for violin and piano - Vladigerov’s Song (actually this is the second part of Bulgarian Suite for orchestra, which was later arranged for violin and piano), or for the six-stringed instrument arpeggione - Schubert’s Sonata. The other two compositions are the original versions for cello and piano. When writing the title to his work, Brahms intentionally puts the piano before the cello, thus stressing on the equal role of the piano instrument.
Diliana Momtchilova and Lora Tchekoratova were born in Sofia. They both received their high-school education at the Lyubomir Pipkov National Music School in Sofia. In Bulgaria they studied with eminent teachers and after that they continued their studies at the Juilliard School in the USA.
Diliana Momtchilova holds Master’s and Doctoral degrees from the Juilliard School. Her principal teachers in New York were Zara Nelsova and Harvey Shapiro. She has participated in master classes led by Janos Starker, Julius Berger, Angelica May, and the Principal cellists of the New York Philharmonic Carter Brey, and Lorne Monroe.
Lora Tchekoratova, as a student of Seymour Lipkin, earned Bachelor, Master, and Doctor of Musical Arts Degrees thus becoming the first Bulgarian musician to hold a Doctorate from Juilliard.
Both performers have won many awards at prestigious international competitions. They perform in famous venues in the USA and Europe as soloists and chamber musicians, as well as with symphony orchestras.

GERHARD REICHENBACH, guitar - Works for Guitar

GERHARD REICHENBACH, guitar - Works for Guitar
ID: GD336
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Guitar

Guitar music compositions are not so traditional in Bulgaria, as they are in Western Europe. So it is a real event when guitar works by a Bulgarian composer are released.
Rossen Balkanski, who is the author of the music in this release, is also a performing concert guitarist. He studied the guitar under the best teachers in Bulgaria and currently, along with his activity as a performer and composer, he also teaches classical guitar at the Academy of Music in Sofia.
Besides chamber music (mainly works for guitar), he has also written incidental and film music, as well as a Concert for three guitars and chamber orchestra. Several of his compositions for solo guitar have received awards in Bulgaria. He is a member of the Union of Bulgarian Composers. His works have been published in Bulgaria and by music publishers BIM, Switzerland, and Daminus, Germany. What is characteristic of his style is that he combines elements of Bulgarian folklore with classical structure.
“It's so exciting to write music for high-class performers! I had the pleasure to do that for one of the greatest German guitar players - Gerhard Reichenbach. Balkan Sonata is dedicated to him and his unique talent for interpretation.” This short statement explains Balkanski’s choice connected with this work.
Gerhard Reichenback is well-known to all guitar connoisseurs throughout the world. Having studied under some of the great masters of the guitar, he is a virtuoso at his instrument, a musician with a brilliant sound and an active performing career. Apart from his classical guitar repertoire, he is an avid supporter and performer of contemporary music.
Raichenbach often performs works by Hans Werner Henze, Arvo Part, Rossen Balkanski, Boris Assafiev and Buck Wolters. He frequently participates in radio and TV programmes and as a jury member in major international guitar competitions and festivals. He passes on his experience to young musicians - at the “Franz Liszt” Hochschule fur Musik in Weimar, and since 2004, he has been a professor of guitar at the State Conservatory of Thessaloniki.

Recorded on 2-4th April 2006 at the Evangelische Kirche Flammersfeld, Germany

STUART- IVANOV DUO

STUART- IVANOV DUO
ID: GD340
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Violin

Pianist Svetozar Ivanov has always surprised the listener with the interesting programs that he records. He definitely has an affinity for music of the 20th century and the end of the 19th century. His previous two CDs released by Gega New - Vers la flamme (GD 322) and Naked Tango (GD 327) include mainly works by Debussy, Berg, Schoenberg, Scriabin, Satie, Nazareth, Helps, Tisdall, Stravinsky, Barber. In his latest album Svetozar Ivanov concentrates again on 20th century music. Together with the violinist Carolyn Stuart they present the composer Nikolai Roslavets, who is almost unknown and very rarely performed. In the 20s of the last century, however, Roslavets was among the most famous Russian authors. He was president of the prestigious Association of Contemporary Music, a member of the first Soviet Composers’ Union, chief editor of the journal Muzykalnaya Kultura (Musical Culture), and a highly regarded composer and teacher. After Josef Stalin rose to power the Russian Association of Proletarian Musicians began its attacks on the Association of Contemporary Music, and on experimental artists. Roslavets was pronounced “decadent and formalist”, an “enemy of the people” and by the end of the decade was stripped of his prestigious positions. Many of his works were lost, stolen, or destroyed. The Duo Carolyn Stuart - Svetozar Ivanov have managed to collect some of the works that have survived. A part of them have never been released or performed before. This is a world premiere recording of some of his unpublished miniatures.
Carolyn Stuart currently serves as Associate Professor of Music at the University of South Florida and as chair and jury member for the Rutenberg International Chamber Music Festival and Competition. She has presented master classes at universities and conservatories throughout the US, Canada, and Europe. She often performs at concerts in North America and Europe. An eloquent interpreter of modern music, Ms. Stuart avidly collaborates with current composers and has been a member of the celebrated new music ensemble Quorum. Svetozar Ivanov was born in Bulgaria and graduated at the Prof. Pancho Vladigerov National Conservatory in Sofia. Mr. Ivanov holds a degree from the University of Michigan (DMA). Svetozar Ivanov is Associate Professor of Piano at University of South Florida and has often served on juries for prestigious music competitions and festivals. His gives performances at concerts as recitalist and orchestra soloist in Europe and North America.

ID: GD310
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

Recorded in Bulgaria Concert Hall, Sofia, February 2004
Balance: Miroslav Danev
Editing: Pavel Boliarski (Acoustic Version Studio)

Voland Quartet presents a very interesting program. The works included were created during the last 70 years and they show some trends in the development of 20th and 21st century music. Of special interest is the combination of two pianos with the timbre variety of the different percussion instruments. The four musicians are renowned solo performers, but in the present recordings they have achieved an amazing ensemble performance.

Gega New has published two CDs of the musician: the first one containing works for piano by Mussorgsky (GD 117) and the second - works for cello and piano by Pizzetti, recorded together with the cello player Seeli Toivio (GD 275).
Michal Drewnowski studied the piano with Ewa Poblocka in Warsaw and later on with his father, the well known Polish pianist Marek Drewnowski. He has played extensively as a soloist and chamber musician in most of the European countries in important festivals and venues. He has particular affinity to19th and 20th century music, which is evident in his performance in this program.
Christo Yotzov graduated at the State Academy of Music in Sofia with Dobri Paliev. In 1985, he founded Acoustic Version with Antony Donchev and since then has won many prestigious awards at European jazz festivals. He has performed all over the world with Acoustic Version and also with other artists such as Tommy Smith, Andy Scofield, Milcho Leviev, Alexia, Reiner Winterschlagen, Yildiz Ibrahimova, and Adam Pierontchik.

ENRIQUE GRANADOS - LUDMIL ANGELOV, piano

ENRIQUE GRANADOS - LUDMIL ANGELOV, piano
ID: GD329
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Ludmil Angelov has always surprised the listener with the interesting programs he chooses to record. He has already recorded three programs on the Gega New label: Chopin’s complete rondos and variations (GD 135), works by Richard Strauss (GD 196) and together with the violinist Vesko Eschkenazy - works by Prokofiev, Shostakovich and Shchedrin (GD 269). Two of the releases received international awards. The CD with rondos and variations of Chopin won the Grand Prix du Disque Chopin of the 5th International Frédéric Chopin Competition in Warszaw, 2000, and the CD with Ludmil Amgelov and Vesko Eschkenazy performing received the Golden Muse award in 2003 by the Russian Cultural and Information Centre in Sofia. The present release is also expected to create great interest among music lovers, as Enrique Granados is one of the most distinguished Spanish composers. He began composing the Dances in 1883, but they took the completed form in which we know them today in 1900. According to the latest research of the composer’s works, the titles of only two of the pieces (No. 4 and No. 7) were given by the composer, and the rest were named by the publisher. The last two pieces - Moresque and Canción árabe, were published in 1890 and both have an oriental atmosphere about them.
It is not by chance that Ludmil Angelov has selected to record these works. He resides in Spain, where he has founded and is currently an artistic director of the International Music Festival in Toledo. The pianist began his artistic career in Bulgaria and he has also given concerts throughout Europe, the USA, South America, Hong Kong, Korea and Taiwan. He has been performing under the baton of conductors such as L. Foster, J. DePriest, J.-B. Pommier, M. Andreae, G. Pehlivanian, F. Glushchenko, J. Pons, P. Halffter, E. Garcia Asensio, M. Boni, R. Raichev, M. Angelov, E. Tabakov, V. Ghiaurov, R. Milanov, etc. Ludmil Angelov has been awarded with prizes at international competitions, including Senigallia (Italy, 1976), Frédéric Chopin (Poland, 1985), Palm Beach International Competition (USA, 1990), Piano Masters (Monte Carlo, 1994) and World Piano Masters Tour (France, 1997). He has had successful recitals at the La Roque d’Anthéron International Piano Festival and the International Chopin Festival in Warsaw. In 2002 Ludmil Angelov made his debut at the Newport Festival in the U.S.A. and in 2005 his debut at “Rarities of Piano Music” Festival in Husum, Germany. The pianist has also recorded for RСА, France Classique, Pentatone and Danacord. His performances have been broadcast by radio and TV stations in Bulgaria, France, Spain, Poland, Hungary, Argentina and Korea.

Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Svetozar Ivanov has a successful international career as a pianist. He has made numerous appearances as recitalist and orchestra soloist in Europe and North America. Recent venues include Festival “Peter the Great” in the Netherlands, Robert Helps International Festival at Merkin Concert Hall in New York City, Fox River Chamber Music Festival in Wisconsin, Chautauqua Music Festival in New York, Sequoia Concerts in San Francisco, The Steinway Series and the Encore Series in Florida and numerous concert series at universities throughout the USA. He is a piano professor at University of South Florida and serves on the Artist Faculty at Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival in Vermont and as Artistic Director of the Steinway Piano Series in Florida. Svetozar Ivanov was born in Bulgaria and is a graduate of the Pancho Vladigerov Bulgarian National Conservatory. He holds the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from University of Michigan. The first CD of the pianist released by Gega New includes works by Debussy, Berg, Schoenberg and Scriabin (GD 322). The second CD features pieces which present the development of music art within a period of four centuries. Svetozar Ivanov says about the present program: “In 1914 Erik Satie composed Perpetual Tango which was meant to be repeated eternally. Seventy years later John Cage wrote a piece with the same title, shape and structure as Satie's tango. Separately and superimposed, these two works encircle this CD endlessly. The title, Naked Tango is borrowed from a stunning work (reproduced on the cover) by Argentine artist Guillermo Kuitca. I was very fortunate to know Robert Helps during the last few years of his life and he remains a great inspiration for me as a person and as a musician. His music, which is the heart of this CD, along with timeless sounds from the distant past (Tisdall, Rameau) is woven into the perpetual rhythm of the tango as expressed by Nazareth, Stravinsky, Shchedrin and Barber.”

Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental

She started studying piano with Giampiero Semeraro, Maria Tipo, Lydia Rocchetti-Pezzati (at the Florence Conservatoire); she participated in master classes with Ilonka Deckers, and in a master class for Lieder and Vocal Music with Elio Battaglia in Acquasparta (Terni, Italy). Later she specialised in vocal and instrumental chamber music with Iain Ledingham, former Head of Opera at the Royal Academy of Music (London), and in solo repertoire with Dennis Lee. In November 2003 she took her Master of Musicology (MMus) at King’s College London with a Special Study on Schumann’s early piano music (passed with Distinction). In October 2008 she submitted her PhD thesis, which was completed with an AHRC scholarship, at the same institution. She won awards at prestigious piano competitions: 1st Prize of the National Piano Competition “Muzio Clementi” in Florence, “Pietro Napoli” in Livorno (three times), “Pasquale Cafaro” in Galatina, “J. S. Bach” in Sestri Levante, 1st prize as an accompanist in the “Jugend Musiziert” competition in Munster (Germany), the International Piano Competition in Stresa. She performs regularly in Italy, Germany and the UK in solo recitals and as an accompanying pianist. In January 2003 she made her debut in Bulgaria as a soloist performing Schumann’s Piano Concerto.
The works selected for this programme come as a logical choice, even though Schumann is a great challenge for every pianist (he was called the “Paganini of the piano”). Fiammetta Tarli demonstrates a permanent interest for this composer not only as a performer, but also as a musicologist. Her deep knowledge of his works helps her convey the composer‘s philosophy.
