In 1999 Gega New released an album with works by young Bulgarian composers (GD 253). It included Two Bagatelles for Piano, Clarinet and Percussions by Yassen Vodenitcharov. Even then he demonstrated his affinity for originally chosen instruments.

The solo works are for harpsichord and soprano-saxophone. The selection of instruments renders a specific sound colour to the works and emphasizes the author's conception. The pieces are performed by renowned musicians from France, the USA, Canada and Bulgaria.

He is a graduate of the Prof. Pancho Vladigerov National Academy of Music in Sofia and Paris National Conservatory (Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris).

Georgi Minchev (b. 1939) is among the most renowned Bulgarian composers. His teacher was Marin Goleminov and he majored under Rodion Schedrin, Aram Hachaturian and Olivier Messiaen. His works have won awards in Europe and the USA and have been performed in Bulgaria, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Russia, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Cuba, Columbia, Australia, Greece, Belgium, Austria, San Marino, USA, Holland, Spain, Japan, Great Britain and Finland. A great part of his compositions have been released by leading recording companies. Gega New also has released some of his works (GD 204). This new release presents the composer again and features his brilliants orchestral approach.
The music for orchestra in “Contrasts” was written upon invitation of Maestro Thomas Kalb for the Heidelberg Philharmonic Society. Its premiere was in 2002 in Heidelberg (Germany). The composer remarks about his work: “... I set myself the goal to create a piece which is masterly and bravura but at the same time emotional and poetic with different and permanently changing dynamics, tempo and character - aggressive in some places and calm in others, with powerful culminations followed by standstill noiselessness...”
“Monody and Concerto grosso” was also written by request of a famous musician - the violist Dimitar Penkov who has worked in Hannover for many years. The premiere was in Sofia in 2007. “Concert Music for Orchestra” was composed long before the other two works. It was written in 1976 by order of the Symphonic Orchestra of the Czech Radio in Prague. Its world premiere was also in Prague, in the same year.
The three compositions have been performed many times in Europe and have always aroused the interest of the audience and the reviewers.

J.S. BACH - The Art of the Fugue BWV 1080 - Quartetto Bernini

J.S. BACH - The Art of the Fugue BWV 1080 - Quartetto Bernini
ID: ARNR0301
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Quartet

Classical, Bach, String Quartet

Digipack with Booklet 16 pagine

With this new edition of "The Art of the Fugue", the last instrumental masterwork of Bach, the Quartetto Bernini is proposing for the first time the filological execution of Bernini's manuscript.
Precious and unique, this recording offers to the listener a new clarity, compared with the existing numerous versions, based on the first edition of print.

"The Art of the Fugue" is infact a complex work, where the inventive counterpoint of Bach is taken to the limit and in this edition Quartetto Bernini offers a particular lecture, next to the instrumental praxis of that epoche, also through the use of a splendid quartet of italian instuments, dated 16th/17th century.
