ID: GD198
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano and Cello

The famous Bulgarian cellist Ventseslav Nikolov known with his preference for contemporary music and with his significant popularizing activity plays two remarkable 20th-century compositions - the sonatas by Schnittke and Prokofiev. Together with the pianist Rostislav Yovchev, an excellent musician also with proven understanding and attitude to 20th century music, he has registered an inspiring interpretation of the compositions included in the album. The duo reveals the emotional resources of Prokofiev's music and that of Schnittke. It is with mastership in the sound producing and overlapping of timbres and nuances, understanding the essence of the dynamics in the composer's invention, that both cellist and pianist achieve a strongly impressing rendition of the works, whose sincere impulse captivates the listeners.

DMITRI SHOSTAKOVICH - Works for Cello - Alexander Somov, violoncello

DMITRI SHOSTAKOVICH - Works for Cello - Alexander Somov, violoncello
ID: GD307
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Cello Collection
Subcollection: Piano and Cello

The works selected for the program are a great challenge to every cello player. They were first performed by the famous Mstislav Rostropovich (the Concert) and Victor Kubatski (the Sonata) - one of the founders of the first string quartet, the Stradivarius. A period of 25 years divided the creation of the Sonata (1934) and the Concert (1959). During this period Shostakovich’s music was both recognized and rejected, which was a result of the atmosphere in which he lived. Nevertheless, Shostakovich remained true to the high ideals of the Russian intelligentsia. During one of his most difficult periods, he wrote the suite of pieces to the film “The Gadfly” and the Ballet suites (between 1951 and 1955).
The program selected features different stages in the work of Dmitri Shostakovich. In Alexander Somov’s interpretation the music flows freely, with direction and confidence and an amazing maturity for his age. Somov was born in Sofia into a family of musicians. While still a student at the music school in Sofia, he concertized throughout Bulgaria, as well as in Germany, Italy, Greece, Spain and Israel. Upon graduation he was awarded a full scholarship to the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London, where he joined the cello class of Prof. Stefan Popov. He continued his successful career by giving concerts in Europe and participating in international festivals. In 1993 he received the first prize and gold medal in the Young Musical Talents National Competition in Sofia; in 1994 he was second prizewinner in the Earth and People International Competition; in 1996 he won the First Alexander Tansman International Competition in Lodz, Poland; in 1997 he took first prize in the International Music Competition of the Polish Cultural Institute in London. He was also a recipient of the Guildhall School of Music & Drama Gold Medal, the highest honour of the British music conservatories. In the year 2000 he was appointed solo cellist of the Northern Sinfonia chamber orchestra in Newcastle.
He is a regular guest principal cellist with the London Philharmonic, Halle Orchestra, and Scottish Chamber Orchestra, and in April 2006 assumed his new post as Violoncelle Super Soliste of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg. He is also a professor at the National Conservatory - Strasbourg.
Besides being influenced by his teachers, Stefan Rounevski and Stefan Popov, a support to his development as a cellist has always been his mother, the pianist Bogdana Popova, whose teachers were Lydia Kuteva and Tamara Yankova. Popova took her post-graduate studies in the Czech Republic, where she worked with Prof. Karel Yandera and V. Vodrovic. She has performed with great success in Bulgaria and in Italy, France, Germany, Great Britain, Czech Republic and Greece. She has made numerous studio recordings for Bulgarian National Television and Radio, the Balkanton label, Radio Munich, Czech television and the Supraphon label, and the Italian television network (RAI). Currently, Bogdana Popova is a professor in piano at the Bulgarian Academy of Music.
The Bulgarian National Radio Symphony Orchestra, which is one of the country’s oldest and most respected ensembles, also participates in the recording, conducted by Milen Nachev.

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.

Mozartiana - Works for cello & fortepiano
ID: CC1011
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano and Cello

The works on this recording reflect the richness of the cello repertoire from the late 18th and early 19th Centuries.

Mozart's unfinished Sonata movement in B flat is here, having been completed by Annette Isserlis. The disc also includes works by Mozarts's pupils: J N Hummel's "Variations à la Monférine" Op.54 and Wölfl's Sonata in D Op. 31 are both beautifully crafted and make virtuoso demands on the performers. Together with the exquisite Mozart inspired sonata by Hélène Liebmann, this is a CD of exhilarating and unjustly neglected masterpieces.

Cello Classics' founder Sebastian Comberti and fortepianist Maggie Cole play on instruments of the period, bringing these works to light in all their true colours.

Julian Dawes - Chamber Works

Julian Dawes - Chamber Works
ID: CC5004
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano and Cello

The chamber works on this CD by Julian Dawes give a representative sample of a compelling selection from his uniquely wide-ranging and varied output,the continuing traditional English style of Elgar, Vaughan Williams and Finzi but with its own individual voice and orchestral sound.

Amongst his 20th century English influences are the pastoralism and extended tonality of Herbert Howells, the richness of Walton, the elegant delicacy of Berkeley and the jazzy impetus of Rodney Bennett; wider European influences include the caustic irony of Shostakovich and Kurt Weil, and the rhythmic impetus of Prokofiev and Stravinsky. Yet Dawes welds from these influences an individual voice that is both distinctive and refreshing, displaying assured craftsmanship and characterful invention. (Malcolm Miller 2008)

Giles Swayne's works for cello exhibit an astonishing array of moods and colours. The restless beauty of Four Lyrical Pieces and strident romanticism of the Sonata offer remarkable counterpoint to his sublime Suite for solo cello. Canto seduces us with its intoxicating symbiosis of traditional African and Western art music.

Swayne:
Four Lyrical Pieces, Op. 6
Suite No. 1 for solo cello, Op. 111
Sonata for cello and piano, Op. 103
Canto for cello, Op. 31
