Type: CD
Collection: Orchestral Works
Subcollection: Orchestra

The compositions presented in this programme were created during the 90ies of the last century and illustrate the composer's sensitivity and confession. His messages to the public are emotional, especially as far as Fahrenheit 451 Symphonic Suite from the Ballet is concerned. The other work is SentiMetal Concerto for Violoncello and Orchestra, one of the composer's most outspokenly lyrical works. A little sentiment, a little metal, this is an explanation, characteristic of the author's paradoxical thinking and sense of humour. This work, commissioned by the Dutch Radio NOS expresses the author's evolution in style, his sound and timbre diversity, virtuosity, dynamics, and fantasy.

GIUSEPPE VERDI - DUETS FROM OPERAS - NICOLA GHIUSELEV - ALEXANDRINA PENDATCHANSKA - VLADIMIR STOYANOV

GIUSEPPE VERDI - DUETS FROM OPERAS - NICOLA GHIUSELEV - ALEXANDRINA PENDATCHANSKA - VLADIMIR STOYANOV
ID: GD202
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Opera & Vocal Collection
Subcollection: Voices and Orchestra

The famous bass Nicola Ghiuselev performs together with the young and already celebrated singers Alexandrina Pendatchanska and Valdimir Stoyanov duets from some of the most loved and widely performed Verdi operas. Still fairly unusual as a genre, this CD of opera ensemble excerpts offers the opportunity of getting to know and appreciating the vocalists' artistic mastery from a different point of view. The duets feature the musicality of the participating couples, alongside with their ability to co-ordinate and combine phrases, moods, feelings and to convey the protagonist's characteristic states, expressed in a harmonious musical sound. They depict vividly Leonora's soul, torn by grief, seeking for Padre Guardiano's kind and wise support; Attila, the cruel warrior and barbarian conqueror, who gradually realises the urgent plea of Ezio, the Roman, trying to convince him to have mercy on his native Italy. Each of the duets contains dramatic and psychological clashes and they all demonstrate the performers' unity, achieved by the soprano Pendatchanska, baritone Stoyanov and Nicola Ghiuselev, whom we hear in all recordings, with exquisite brilliance, both vocal and emotional, and perfect sense of musicality. The CD of Verdi opera duets is original not only for the idea and its realisation but also for the selection of musical excerpts which combine bass with soprano or baritone.

VICTORIA BOND - COMPOSITIONS

VICTORIA BOND - COMPOSITIONS
ID: GD197
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

American composer Victoria Bond, whose stage music and chamber works enjoy great popularity in the USA, is also famous as conductor in her home country, Europe and Asia. The CD includes seven of her compositions each of which highlights various aspects of her talent. Bond is very good at logically structuring the small forms imbuing them at the same time with emotionality and musical ideas. For example, the wonderful piece Batucada, variations on a Brazilian samba for piano, or Sonata for Cello and Piano, the expressive means of which have originated from some techniques characteristic of 20th century music like Schoenberg's serial technique. Weddings & Bar Mitzvahs, built on a Jewish folk song with a beautiful melody is also an excellent concert piece. The Dreams of Flying demonstrates the composer's skill in the combination of timbres and the development of basic motifs, in interweaving the voices.

Performed by: Georgy Valtchev (violin), Nikolai Gagov (violin), Valentin Gerov (viola), Christo Tanev (violoncello), Anna Stoytcheva (piano), Kremena Acheva (flute)

PETKO STAINOV - COMPOSITIONS

PETKO STAINOV - COMPOSITIONS
ID: GD259
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choir

The first half of the 20th century marks the appearance of a number of talented and prolific composers and musicians in Bulgarian musical culture. One of them is Petko Stainov (1986-1977) - a composer, pedagogue, and musical activist. Petko Stainov was born in Kazanlak, which was then famous for its music traditions. After hurting one of his eyes, he lost his sight completely when he was 11. In 1915 he graduated from the Institute for the Blind in Sofia. Then he studied piano with Andrei Stoyanov and made his early attempts at recording. He furthered his studies in Germany and after returning to Bulgaria played an active part in the country's music life. His first major work was the Thracian Dances symphonic suite in three movements (1925). Later he added an additional movement to the suite, Mechkarsko (The Bear's Dance, 1926). His other works include the symphonic poems A Legend (1927), and Thrace (1937), the symphonic suite A Fairy Tale (1930), Symphonic Scherzo (1930), two symphonies (1945 and 1949), etc. Along with his symphonic work, he also created remarkable choral pieces - from songs for different choral formations up to large-scope dramatic ballads. In both genres he adapted the expressive means of the European musical tradition to the Bulgarian vision of the world. He thus created a musical style of his own combining in a perfect manner Bulgarian rhythm and tunes with European musical trends
The present release features some of the composer's symphonic and choral works, recorded by the best Bulgarian orchestras and choirs.
