DIMITAR NENOV - COMPOSITIONS

DIMITAR NENOV - COMPOSITIONS
ID: GD258
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

Bulgaria's liberation from the Ottoman occupation (1878) created conditions for the development of professional culture in Bulgaria. Up to then the only cultural product was present in the folk tradition. From the first half of the 20th century onwards the arts marked a rapid development. Many talented Bulgarians returned to their country and lay the foundations of the Bulgarian national culture. Dimitar Nenov (1902-1953) was among the representatives of the Bulgarian composers' school of that time. He was a brilliant composer and pianist, a talented architect, an original thinker, piano pedagogue and active public figure. He graduated in architecture in Germany and then went on to study piano, theory of music and composition under the tuition of well-known professors at the Dresden Conservatory. Later he specialized in piano in Poland, graduated from the Music Academy of Bologna, Italy, and in 1937 became Professor in piano at the State Academy of Music in Sofia. Besides being a pedagogue, he also worked actively for establishing the Contemporary Music Composers' Association in Bulgaria, gave many concerts in his country and abroad. He also created a large quantity of works where he united the ideas of the European musicians together with his aspiration for ethnical sounding of the musical work. The two compositions included in this CD are an illustration of his concept. They were composed during the period 1932-1939. The toccata was conceived as a piano variant and was later orchestrated by the great Bulgarian composer Lazar Nikolov (Dimiter Nenov's student).
The Bulgarian pianist Anton Dikov, whose teachers were Nadia Boulanger, Arthur Rubinstein and Robert Kasadeseau, performs the piano solo of the concerto. He has concertised successfully in Europe, the USA, South America, and Asia and is a holder of many prestigious awards from international competitions. The remarkable performance of the Rousse Philharmonic Orchestra is due to a large extent to its conductor, Alipi Naidenov - a prominent Bulgarian conductor who has given numerous concerts and made many recordings in Bulgaria and in other European countries.

Just as in the first three albums, the series MASTERS OF CLASSICAL MUSIC (vol. 1 - GD 245, vol. 2 - GD 246, vol. 3 - GD 247) continues to present composers from different epochs and their ever-loved works. The present programme features pieces written over a vast period of time. Even though each composer represents a different trend in music, they are all united by the eternity of their work. All of them were innovators in music and influenced their followers to a great extent: from the representatives of the Vienna classical school (Mozart and Beethoven), to the author of the first German romantic opera (Weber), the most outstanding comic opera composer (Rossini), up to Elgar, who worked in the beginning of the 19th and the end of the 20th c.

While 19th century Western Europe music includes different styles and schools, there is no such division among Russian composers. During that time Russia marks a period of real national upsurge in enhancing the Russian nation. For this reason, the Russian composers turn back to the traditional village folklore and consider it basic for the future development of Russian musical culture. Glinka was the first to look back to the Russian musical heritage. His works provide a basis for the Russian classical music school. The realistic traditions in his music are followed also by the next generation of composers.
At the end of the 50s and the beginning of the 60s a group of composers (Balakirev, Borodin, Mussorgsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Cui) created the group “The Five”, dedicated to the production of a specifically Russian brand of music and truthful representation of real life. They follow the path of Glinka and Dargomizhsky in creating works which are closely connected to folk art. However, they also stand out with their brilliant artistic talent and the innovations they made in opera, symphonic and chamber music. Tchaikovsky also shares their outlook. He often uses Russian folklore, but is interested mainly in the inner life of man, and not in large-scale historical dramas. In this sense, his music is more closely related to everyday romance, than to the traditional folklore. Tchaikovsky also creates a new type of ballet music. Music had mainly accompaniment functions before him. He makes it stand on its own in the whole performance. By employing the expressive means of symphonic music, the composer reveals the dramatic content of the work.
20th century composers are also influenced by their predecessors. They develop the folk traditions and enrich them with the expressive means of their time.

The premiere performance of Symphony No. 1 took place on November 20th, 1889 in Budapest, conducted by the author himself. Almost 120 years after the premiere, Njagul Tumangelov accomplished the recording of this massive work.
Being the son of the famous composer, choir conductor and music pedagogue Dragia Tumangelov, he naturally chose music as his career. Njagul Tumangelov received his music education at the Music School for Gifted Children in Sofia and then went on to study at the State Academy of Music - Sofia, in the class of Professor Boyan Lechev. In 1962 he became the principal concertmaster of Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra, and in 1969 he received the position of principal concertmaster of the Austrian Radio and Television, and later - the Bavarian Radio and Television. He is a founder and primarius of the Austrian Radio and Television string quartet. It was by accident that he launched on his career as a conductor - the conductor of Il barbiere di Siviglia by Paisiello in the chamber opera in Vienna was suddenly taken ill and Mr. Tumangelov took his place and conducted the performance. Since then he has been successfully working both as a violin player and a conductor.
In 2000 Gega New released a CD with three sonatas for violin and piano by Villa-Lobos, recorded by Njagul Tumangelov - violin, and Bojidar Noev - piano (GD 224). Now, 8 years later, his admirers will be able to appreciate his talent as a conductor.
