MAX REGER - Piano Compositions - Dimitat Tsanev, piano

MAX REGER - Piano Compositions - Dimitat Tsanev, piano
ID: GD180
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

In the present release the pianist Dimitar Tsanev, performer of a number of Reger's works, has collected examples of the two kinds: for instance Prelude and Fugue, op. 99 is perfectly constructed in a Baroque polyphonic manner, while Episodes op. 115 show the romantic outpourings of a gentle soul, thrilled and listening to its own quavers. Tsanev untwines Reger's narration with mastership and much delicacy in nuances and sound colours. His performance is profound and of exquisite style. The same is true of the Sonatina op. 84, No. 4, whose scales and structure herald the beginning of Neo-classicism in music. Tsanev draws out the musical themes in beautiful lines, underlines the uncommon approaches in the harmonic plan. Everything in his playing is organized in a very strict logical order thus resulting in a kind of music which is captivating and enjoyable.

LAZAR NIKOLOV - COMPOSITIONS

LAZAR NIKOLOV - COMPOSITIONS
ID: GD149
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

Lazar Nikolov (b. 1922) has included in this CD three works created in the 1990-1992 period, performed at the New Bulgarian Music review and in concert. His music has been marked as avant-guard and referred to the latest trends of 20th century compositional output. In his latest works the composer synthesises devices and techniques of serial, atonal and aleatoric music. The use of Bulgarian metres and modes has always lent a specific, national character to his art which has become a model of innovative thinking. Of particular originality is the composition Metamorphoses No. 4 for 12 violoncellos, dedicated to Prof. Zdravko Yordanov. This is yet another proof of Nikolov's ability to work with timbres, to discover sonorities and new performer's techniques.

SIMEON PIRONKOV - COMPOSITIONS

SIMEON PIRONKOV - COMPOSITIONS
ID: GD160
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

Simeon Pironkov ranks among the most famous Bulgarian composers from the second half of the 20th century. His works in various genres are performed both at home and at prestigious musical festivals for contemporary music in Berlin, Warsaw, Zagreb, Budapest, etc. He is the author of compositions commissioned by full orchestras, chamber ensembles and solo performers. Pironkov's style is characterised by exquisitely coloured melody, flexibility of metre and rhythm influenced by the Bulgarian folk music, delicacy of orchestration and emotional variety, being the result of the sensitivity and richness of his inner world. The works selected for this release represent the evolution of the composer's style. Requiem for an Unknown Young Man is a landmark work in his creative biography, extensively performed by the Sofia Soloists Chamber Ensemble. The solo cello sonata Entrata e capriccio is an original virtuoso improvisation with an excellent form, and the music of String Quartet No. 3 (premiered in 1986 in Berlin) is reserved, now tender, now melancholic, cut through by metro-rhythmical and melancholic accents. Most characteristic is Kammersinfonie for 11 soloists, composed in the USA, an expression of maturity and creative imagination.


Performed by: String Quartet: N. Jeleva (violin), N. Gagov (violin), O. Stanchev (viola), K. Bespalov (cello) [1] - [3]; Sofia Soloists Chamber Ensemble conductor Plamen Djouroff [4]; Anatoli Krastev (cello) [5] - [6]; conductor Simeon Pironkov - junior [7] - [11]

THREE CONCERTOS FOR CELLO - HONEGGER - MILHAUD -SAINT-SAENS
ID: GD156
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Cello Collection
Subcollection: Cello

An interesting CD, which has brought together a popular piece like Saint-Saens' Cello Concerto and two other 20th century works for this instrument, united by the wonderful performance of Robin Clavreul who is not only an excellent performer but also a musician featuring good taste, love and feeling for the characteristics of each of the works. His interpretation of every work is remarkable for its lyricism and expression, virtuosity, humour and temperament. Most impressing are the timbre inventions and the brilliance of metre and rhythm in Milhaud's Concerto in particular. Owner of a superb instrument made in 1768 by Lorenzo Carcassi in Florence, the cellist demonstrates a wealth of sounds which can rarely be heard today. Both the conductor, Fabrice Bollon, also from Paris, and the soloist are markedly attracted by new music and lead the Orchestral Ensemble through the world of Honegger and Milhaud.

Film music from the films: 'The Frontier", "History of Fear", Gori, Gori, Oganche", "Dream

Beyond the Frontiers is the title of the CD with music by Theodosii Spassov, a phenomenon in Bulgarian art of performing, who does not fit in the traditional concept of a kaval-player and musician.

The pleasure of experiencing Spassov's art is immense for both amateurs and professionals.

Vesselin Stanev (b. 1964) is a pianist who attracts the attention of the audience with his exceptional dedication to music and variety of performance of each work. Unlike many other musicians, he is equally expert in playing pre-classical and romantic pieces. He always leaves a mark of his individuality when interpreting the different compositions he plays. Familiar piano pieces played by Vesselin Stanev have a totally different sounding and make an impression of something new. An example of this is his interpretation of Chopin's two ballads, the Scherzo, and Polonaise included in this release. The pianist's incredible technique is the key, which lets him into the sphere of great music. It is also a prerequisite for his complete freedom of expression and imagination. Having no technical problems with the instrument, he achieves a higher level of intellectual apprehension of the music material and this results in the creation of compositions, characterized by real co-authorship between composer and performer.

Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choir

Almost all songs included in this release were composed in the forties of the 19th century, a time of elation for Schumann, who had finally found real happiness in life. His lyrical songs are an expression of his innermost feelings of joy, sorrow, delight and inspirations connected with the poetry of his beloved Moerike, Ruekert, Eichendorff, Elisabeth Kulmann and other German poets who have been a source of inspiration for many composers of romantic music. Selected with much precision, the lyrical songs reveal Schumann's talent in shaping the small, always exquisitely woven musical form, his musical gift to create images, metaphors, characters, and natural scenery. The interpretation of singers and choir-masters alike is magnificent with its sincere emotion, subtle nuances of sound and colour, keen feeling for ensemble and perfect intonation.
