Two young and talented Bulgarian performers have chosen for their first album released in Bulgaria a program, which includes Bulgarian authors only. The composers Pancho Vladigerov, Parashkev Hadjiev and Vesselin Stoyanov are among the classics of Bulgarian musical heritage. Their works are much admired by music lovers, and performers often include them in their repertoire. A lot of courage is required for a young performer to record them, as they have been performed and recorded by the greatest Bulgarian musicians, and appreciators of the three composers are well-acquainted with the various interpretations of these works. The violinist Yana Burova and the pianist Vesselina Tckakarova answer this challenge in an amazing way.
Yana Burova and Vesselina Tchakarova studied at secondary music schools in Varna and Sofia, respectively, and after that furthered their education at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London. In 2002 Yana Burova completed her studies as a scholarship student of the Bulgarian virtuoso Vasko Vassilev at London’s Trinity College of Music. In 2001 Vesselina Tchakarova made her London solo recital debut. The following year she appeared as soloist with Vox Aurae orchestra in Brescia, Italy under Giancarlo De Lorenzo.
Yana Burova has attended master classes of Mincho Minchev, Georgy Pauk and Maxim Vengerov, and Vesselina Tchakarova has participated in master classes with Leslie Howard, Paul Roberts and Joan Havill. Presently, both live in the UK.

Spanish and Portuguese Keyboard Music, Vol. 2 - Felicja Blumental, piano

Spanish and Portuguese Keyboard Music, Vol. 2 - Felicja Blumental, piano
ID: BR0022
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Baroque

Some may believe the music of 18th Century Iberian composers to be less interesting than the music from Germany, France and Italy of this period. However, these two volumes of keyboard music illustrate the originality of Spanish and Portuguese composers Angles, Albéniz, Cantallos, Carvalho, Ferrer, Freixanet, Jacinto, Seixas and Soler. At the beginning of the 18th Century, Louis XI was King of Spain. He felt little enthusiasm for Spanish national art and preferred foreign artists. Consequently, Italian singers and composers gradually influenced the aristocratic tastes and the court life in Spain. It was a similar situation in Portugal. When King Johan V (1707-1750) became ruler of Portugal, he set about cultivating the arts in the city of Lisbon. Portuguese musicians had the opportunity to take apprenticeships in Italy while Italian musicians, such as Domenico Scarlatti were welcomed into Lisbon to perform. The authoritative musical figures during this time were! men of the church. Father Antonio Soler was a friar, organist and composer as well as an important theoretician who dominated the musical scene in Spain. The first pianofortes were being manufactured and Soler was fortunate to have a piano at the monastery. Although he wrote for the organ, the compositional quality of his keyboard works show that he had the piano in mind. His Portuguese counterpart was José António Carlos de Seixas. Seixas became Portugal?s finest keyboard player of this period who bridged the gap between Baroque and Classical eras. Both composers did not simply duplicate Italian idioms, but developed and expanded the style while recalling their Spanish and Portuguese roots. They blended vocal-like melodies into quasi-contrapuntal lines and simple block harmonies. This formed a model on which classical composers such as Haydn and Mozart were to base their compositions.
