CONTEMPORARY BULGARIAN COMPOSERS - Vol. 3

CONTEMPORARY BULGARIAN COMPOSERS - Vol. 3
ID: GD253
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

The third CD from the CONTEMPORARY BULGARIAN COMPOSERS series presents six creative artists from the middle generation, all of whom have entered their names in the Bulgarian culture through vivid artistic achievements. This is a selection of chamber-instrumental opuses of non-traditional sounding and original compositional invention. Velislav Zaimov, famous for his symphonic works, is featured with his magnificent Largo for 12 violoncellos inspired and dedicated to the work of Prof. Zdravko Yordanov, the great Bulgarian cellist. Julia Tsenova, whose name has been well-established in the country's musical life for two decades now and whose works are marked by interesting and unusual ideas, has chosen her "П = 3.14" on lyrics by actress Mara Chapanova, herself a champion of new Bulgarian and world music. The poet's symbols and metaphors, the specific imagery leading to antiquity and the female sensitivity of the verses have been masterfully rendered in the vocal and orchestral parts of the piece. Andrian Pervazov has written a large-scope cycle for three flutes and tape. Inspired by the Sumerian epoch, the work is entitled Ziggurat or Sumerian Temple Music from the Age before the Flood and interweaves sonorousness, primitivism, spoken speech and recitation, all of which create a unique sound atmosphere. Artin Poturlian and Bojidar Petkov are represented by their works for two pianos, Fantasia "Worlds" and Toccata, respectively, and Yassen Vodenitcharov, by his Two Bagatelles for piano, clarinet and percussion. The works in the CD are interpreted by prominent Bulgarian performers united by the common idea of establishing and promoting the contemporary Bulgarian music.


Performers: Students from Prof. Zdravko Yordanov's class, Lilyana Raikova (piano), Ilia Glavanov (clarinet), Tatyana Karparova (percussions), Kremena Acheva (flute), Yavor Zhelev (flute), Mila Pavlova (flute), Anahid Akopian and Artin Poturlian (piano duo), Julia Ganeva and Konstantin Ganev (piano duo), Tsvetana Hristoforou (mezzo-soprano)

Plamen Djouroff, conductor

Sofia Soloists Chamber Ensemble was founded in 1962. Since its foundation 40 years ago it has been conducted by Vassil Kazandjiev (1964-1978), Emil Tabakov (1979-1988) and its present conductor - Plamen Djouroff, who has been connected with the work of the ensemble since 1988. Sofia Soloists has preserved throughout the years its image of an elite formation with an exceptionally rich repertoire from the 16-20th centuries, including works by Bulgarian composers. The present release features four pieces composed during the 1970s-1990s. Symphony No 4 by Lyubomir Pipkov (1904-1974) was written in the last years of the composer's life (1970). For this composition his choice fell on the chamber expression of the string orchestra. Meditations by Lazar Nikolov (b. 1922) was written for string quartet (1970) and a year later it was revised for string orchestra. Microsymphony (1922) by Dimitar Tapkoff (b. 1929) brings out the most concentrated expression of the symphonic model. The work is dedicated to Arthur Honegger and the use of his initials A, H has not only tonal and constructive role but also introduces semantically the question of tradition and stability of musical values. Requiem for an Unknown Young Man for 13 stringed instruments (1968) by Simeon Pironkov (1927-1999) combines the European liturgical choral tradition and the composition and technical devices of aleatory music. Sofia Soloists' conductor, Plamen Djouroff (b. 1949), graduated from the Pancho Vladigerov State Academy of Music in Sofia. He furthered his studies in conducting at the Vienna Academy of Music under Karl Osterreicher. Besides being conductor of Sofia Soloists, Mr. Djouroff is also one of the outstanding Bulgarian composers. His works have been performed and released in Bulgaria and abroad.

Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Quartet

The distinctive and passionate sound of Romantic Czech music is gloriously showcased in this new disc by the Sacconi Quartet. The new recording is released on the Quartetʼs own label, Sacconi Records. It contains works by three prodigious Bohemian composers all of whom were featured in the outstanding 2010 Sacconi Chamber Music Festival in Folkestone, entitled ʻTales of Bohemiaʼ.
The Meditation on the Old Czech Hymn, Saint Wenceslas by Josef Suk is a largely undiscovered gem; a work of great power and presence. Suk, the student and later son-in-law of Antonín Dvořák, wrote the short, hauntingly beautiful piece at the outbreak of the First World War.
Bedřich Smetanaʼs String Quartet No. 1 in E minor, From My Life is one of the great autobiographical works. Written at the end of the composerʼs life when he was completely deaf, it is a deeply personal work reflecting a life tinged with tragedy and sadness.
The String Quartet No. 12 in F major, opus 96, American by Antonín Dvořák is a wonderful work full of soul as well as joyous themes. It is firmly established as one of the best-loved quartets in the repertoire.
The Sacconi Quartet is one of the UK's leading string quartets. Since its formation at the Royal College of Music in 2001, it has established a secure and substantial reputation. The Quartet is recognised for its unanimous and compelling ensemble, performing with style and commitment and consistently communicating with a fresh and imaginative approach.
Its four founder members demonstrate a shared passion for string quartet repertoire, infectiously reaching out to audiences with their energy and enthusiasm. Over the past decade they have enjoyed a highly successful international career, performing regularly throughout Europe, at Londonʼs major venues, in recordings and radio broadcasts.

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.

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.
