Other info:

Pianist Svetozar Ivanov has always surprised the listener with the interesting programs that he records. He definitely has an affinity for music of the 20th century and the end of the 19th century. His previous two CDs released by Gega New - Vers la flamme (GD 322) and Naked Tango (GD 327) include mainly works by Debussy, Berg, Schoenberg, Scriabin, Satie, Nazareth, Helps, Tisdall, Stravinsky, Barber. In his latest album Svetozar Ivanov concentrates again on 20th century music. Together with the violinist Carolyn Stuart they present the composer Nikolai Roslavets, who is almost unknown and very rarely performed. In the 20s of the last century, however, Roslavets was among the most famous Russian authors. He was president of the prestigious Association of Contemporary Music, a member of the first Soviet Composers’ Union, chief editor of the journal Muzykalnaya Kultura (Musical Culture), and a highly regarded composer and teacher. After Josef Stalin rose to power the Russian Association of Proletarian Musicians began its attacks on the Association of Contemporary Music, and on experimental artists. Roslavets was pronounced “decadent and formalist”, an “enemy of the people” and by the end of the decade was stripped of his prestigious positions. Many of his works were lost, stolen, or destroyed. The Duo Carolyn Stuart - Svetozar Ivanov have managed to collect some of the works that have survived. A part of them have never been released or performed before. This is a world premiere recording of some of his unpublished miniatures.
Carolyn Stuart currently serves as Associate Professor of Music at the University of South Florida and as chair and jury member for the Rutenberg International Chamber Music Festival and Competition. She has presented master classes at universities and conservatories throughout the US, Canada, and Europe. She often performs at concerts in North America and Europe. An eloquent interpreter of modern music, Ms. Stuart avidly collaborates with current composers and has been a member of the celebrated new music ensemble Quorum. Svetozar Ivanov was born in Bulgaria and graduated at the Prof. Pancho Vladigerov National Conservatory in Sofia. Mr. Ivanov holds a degree from the University of Michigan (DMA). Svetozar Ivanov is Associate Professor of Piano at University of South Florida and has often served on juries for prestigious music competitions and festivals. His gives performances at concerts as recitalist and orchestra soloist in Europe and North America.
