MARIN GOLEMINOV - Compositions

MARIN GOLEMINOV - Compositions
ID: GD129
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: String instruments

The release is dedicated to the 90th anniversary of Academician Marin Goleminov, the classic of Bulgarian school of composing. It contains four works among which the String Quartet No 3 "Old-Bulgarian" has been a repertoire work for decades now. Written in the 1940s, it is conceptually related to some of his most famous opuses like the dance drama Nestinarka (The Fire-Dancer) and Symphonic Variations on a Theme by Dobri Hristov. The String Quartet No. 7 is from the 70s and bears the marks of Goleminov's evolution of style. The two concert pieces are from the 80s and were inspired by the art of flutist Simeon Shterev and oboist Georgi Zhelyazov. They demonstrate the virtuoso command of compositional and technique devices, of the orchestral writing, Goleminov's ability to refract elements of the aleatoric and sonata, polyphonic and post-realist music through his outstanding individuality.

ALEXANDER YOSSIFOV - COMPOSITIONS

ALEXANDER YOSSIFOV - COMPOSITIONS
ID: GD161
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: String instruments

The CD of the prominent Bulgarian composer Alexander Yossifov comprises works for piano duos - an area in which he presents himself with original ideas. After the success of his opuses for two pianos and four-handed piano, he turned to experimenting with bigger keyboard formations. This resulted in works such as the Symphony Concertante for two piano duos and orchestra of 24 pianos (24 pianists or respectively 48 hands) which has attracted the attention of the Japanese audiences and musical critics alike. The composition was unanimously defined as a unique musical piece of the 20th century. Yossifov, who is the author of operas, ballets, music for children, symphonies and instrumental pieces (more than 1200 in number) ceaselessly seeks to give new meaning through innovative expressive devices and impressive timbre nuances. A creative artist of rich experience and mastery of constructing the musical form, he manages to find the balance between homogeneous instruments - the pianos, as well as between strings and a keyboard duo. In the present recording one can hear the wonderful Variations for Four-Handed Piano based on the well-known Bulgarian National-Revival song "Hubava si moya goro". In the Ballad for Two Four-Handed Pianos the author interweaves with virtuosity Bulgarian national rhythms and characteristic elements from the Japanese music (originally the piece was created for the Japanese duo Kodama and duo Ganevs). The large-scaled composition Concerto for Four-Handed Piano, String Orchestra and Percussion, brings eloquent evidence to Yossifov's remarkable melodic and rhythmic invention.

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]

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.
