Concerto per viola ed orchestra, NDR Orchestra, Aldo Ceccato, conductor

There are two centuries that separate the composers included in this release - Karl Philipp Stamitz (1745-1801) and Krzystof Penderecki (1933). Living in two different epochs, their works reflect not only the development of music, but also the history of the viola concerto. Stamitz' Konzert D Dur for Viola and Orchestra was composed when the genre was still in its early stage, the interest in the instrument itself was quite lively and its technical means and expressive resources provoked the curiosity of the composers. When Penderecki wrote Concerto per viola ed orchestra, the viola had long since established itself in the composers' practice. The idea of combining the two composers is very interesting and requires incredible artistic mastership.
The two concertos have been recorded by the talented Bulgarian viola player Dimitar Penkov. Having graduated from the Pancho Vladigerov State Academy of Music in Sofia, he is laureate of a number of prestigious international competitions. He specialized with Prof. Yfrah Neaman in London and has enjoyed a successful performing career working with conductors like Pierre Bartholomee, Michael Tabachnik, Aldo Ceccato, Gilbert Varga, Vassil Kazandjiev, Konstantin Iliev, Alexander Vladigerov and others. Accepting the invitation of Olivier Messiaen and Pierre Bartholomee, he made a premire performance of Penderecki's viola concerto in France, which was recorded live by Radio Paris (1985). Since 1983 he has been living in Hanover, Germany.

CONTEMPORARY BULGARIAN COMPOSERS - Vol. 2

CONTEMPORARY BULGARIAN COMPOSERS - Vol. 2

Disk: 1
Type: CD
Kolekce: Orchestral WorksPodkolekce: Orchestr

The second CD of the series presenting the contemporary Bulgarian composers, project of the Soros Center for the Arts, includes music by five representatives of three generations of tonal masters. Their compositions demonstrate a rich palette of ideas and aesthetic preferences, so characteristic of the Bulgarian school from the last three decades of the 20th century. Alexander Tanev, known for his excellent choral works and cantatas, often combines in his symphonic works academic principles of construction with the most modern resources of our century, while the younger Alexander Kandov looks for a new expressiveness and has directed himself to original themes in his symphonic works. Simeon Pironkoff's Night Music is among the author's most representative and bright opuses, appealing to the listener with the refined sound and elegant melodic line. The same can be said about the Fantasia by Plamen Djouroff, a prominent Bulgarian composer and conductor. Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Haendel are representative of Krassimir Kyurkchiiski's art of composing. The author demonstrates his mastery of handling the Baroque forms, introducing in them the outlook and interpretation of a contemporary musician.

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.

BELA BARTOK - Concerto for viola and orchestra.
ID: GD306
Disk: 1
Type: CD
Podkolekce: Viola

The Bulgarian violist Dimitar Penkov, who has lived in Germany for a number of years, again presents an interesting program. For his two previous CDs on the Gega New label he recorded Jean-Marie Leclaire’s 6 sonatas for two violas, performed together with Johannes Flieder (GD 212) and the concertos for viola and orchestra by Krzysztof Penderecki and Karl Stamitz (GD 250). The present program features two concertos, which are representative of the music of the 20th century. Both works were written at the end of the composers’ lives and both were dedicated to legendary violists - Bartok wrote his concerto commissioned by William Primrose, while Schnittke kept a promise he had given Juri Bashmet nine years earlier. The premieres of the works were outstanding events among music circles at that time. Dimitar Penkov continuously proves his skill at performing difficult works. His interpretation of the Honegger sonata for viola and piano was the first studio recording of this work. He also performed the French premiere of Penderecki’s viola concerto. During his career Dimitar Penkov has performed under the batons of such notable conductors as Aldo Cecatto, Pierre Bartholomee, Vassil Stefanov, Vassil Kazandjiev, Lutz Herbig, Gilbert Varga, Konstantin Iliev, Anthony Bramall, Michael Tabachnik, Nikos Athineos, Otmar Maga, and Plamen Djouroff. He has realized numerous recordings for the radios of Paris, Sofia, Zurich, and Hannover. Two films produced by Bulgarian National Television document the instrumental art of Dimitar Penkov. The conductor Nikos Athineos studied at the Athens Conservatory, the Cologne Hochschule fur Musik and the Robert Schumann Institute in Dusseldorf. He has toured throughout Germany, Spain, Russia, Lithuania, Israel, France, Belgium and the Netherlands. As a guest conductor he has appeared with various major European orchestras such as the Philharmonia Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of London, the English Chamber Orchestra, the Sinfonia Varsovia, the Prague Gustav Mahler Orchestra, the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra and the Symphony Orchestra of the Bulgarian National Radio. The Bulgarian National Radio Symphony Orchestra is one of Bulgaria’s oldest and most respected ensembles. The orchestra was founded by its chief conductor of more than thirty years, Vassil Stefanov. Other chief conductors have included Alexander Vladigerov, Vassil Kazandjiev, Ruslan Raichev, Milen Nachev. The orchestra is now led by Rossen Milanov.

DIMITAR NENOV - COMPOSITIONS

DIMITAR NENOV - COMPOSITIONS
ID: GD258
Disk: 1
Type: CD
Podkolekce: Klavír

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.
