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. In fact he was the first to have "transferred" the kaval from folk to classical music and jazz, turning it into an instrument capable of expressing a broad range of feelings, moods and images. The CD features film music composed and in most of the recordings performed by Theodosii Spassov, the capacities of whose kaval are indeed beyond the frontier. The pleasure of experiencing Spassov's art is immense for both amateurs and professionals. The latter will appreciate the unique synthesis of thematic structure, form, invention, folklore, image and sound.

Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

Dimitar Tapkoff was born in Sofia in 1929. He graduated in composition under the great Bulgarian composer Marin Goleminov. He has worked in succession in the Bulgarian National Radio, Sofia National Opera, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, the State Academy of Music, the Ministry of Culture. Currently he is Professor in composition at the Academy of Music and Dance Art in Plovdiv, and Director of the Sofia Music Weeks International Music Festival.
Tapkoff began writing music when the post-war avant-guard was fully embraced by a part of the Bulgarian composers, while others supported the national art, and still others followed the traditions of classical "modern". He is closest to the third group and admits that: "I would not say that I am a champion of a modern concept about music. I claim that I stand behind a music concept of my own, no matter what the fashionable trends are." He has always stressed on the possibility to use well-known structures and forms, at the same time incorporating music, which is close to the contemporary listener. His works have often been performed in Bulgaria and abroad. Tapkoff is holder of a number of home and international distinctions, among which the First Prize of the International Composer's Rostrum in Paris '76 for his Peace Cantata. He has composed works in different genres: concertos, overtures, symphonies, solo and choir songs, etc.

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.

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.
