The musical culture of Malta is almost unknown in Bulgaria. With its series of music by Maltese composers, Gega New allows music lovers to get acquainted with it. The first CD with 19th century sacred music paved the way for future collaboration in this big project between Gega New and APS bank, Malta. As a result, two programmes followed with 20th century and 18th century music.
The present release continues the series with one of the most productive periods in the development of Maltese music culture. The recordings were made in Malta by a Bulgarian recording staff with the support of APS bank.
Soloists: Joseph Aquilina (tenor), Alfred Camilleri (baritone), Anthony Montebello (bass) The Jubal Male Choir and Orchestra
Rev. John Galea, conductor
Recorded in May 2004 at the Seminary, Rabat, Malta

Bulgarian Folk Heritage - Stefan Kanev

Bulgarian Folk Heritage - Stefan Kanev

Collection: Traditional
Subcollection: Folk Music

When referring to classical arrangement of Bulgarian folk music, the name of Stefan Kanev (1930-1991) is associated with some of the most exquisite songs and instrumental masterpieces. He received an academic education in music (opera singing, composition, theory of music and pedagogy) and entered the world of folk art by chance, but his creative biography was connected to folklore up to the end of his life. His name is also related to the most brilliant and beloved Bulgarian folk performers and ensembles. Almost every singer or instrumentalist from the second half of the 20th century had worked with Stefan Kanev. Thus the real masterpieces in folk art were created like: “Hei, Neda”, “Three nightingales are singing”, “Eyes, black eyes”, “Don’t be in a hurry, Sun”, and hundreds of others, some of which you will be able to hear in this original overview of beloved performers, songs and melodies.

Irina Georgieva started her musical career at the age of six in Sofia, Bulgaria, receiving the first prize in a regional music competition. She gave her first solo concert at the age of eight. Prizes follow from prestigious international competitions. While still a student at the National Academy of Music in Sofia she performed with the philharmonic orchestras of Sofia, Varna, Pleven, Shumen. In 2001 she won a scholarship from the “Gerber ten Bosch” Foundation and continued her studies in Switzerland at the Music Academy of Basel with Rudolf Buchbinder, who states: “Irina Georgieva is one of the most outstanding piano students encountered during my 35 years of teaching. Her excellent sound culture in connection with stupendous technique, instinctive sense of style, strong personality and charisma predict a great pianistic career for Irina Georgieva.” She brilliantly completed the Basel Music Academy (Concert and Soloist Diploma) having played an integral of works by Sergei Rachmaninoff. The pianist has participated in various competitions and has always been among the laureates. She has played in Switzerland, Italy, France, England, Morocco. Her repertoire includes music from the Baroque to the present. This is what the great piano teacher Lazar Berman says about her: “Irina Georgieva is a very talented artist. Her interpretations are always original, her sound is beautiful, her artistic potential boundless.”

THE VOICE OF PIRIN - music: Kiril Stefanov 2:14

Pirin Ensemble was founded more than 55 years ago in Blagoevgrad. The ensemble quickly established itself as one of the best and attractive formations in Bulgaria. Its repertoire includes original songs and dances mainly from the Pirin region. But in recent years the ensemble increasingly features also music from other folk areas. The album “Old Treasure” shows this variety of music and dance, presented on the stage by the extremely beautiful costumes of the performers. Divided into two parts, the programme includes myths and rituals, holidays and weekdays not only from Southwest Bulgaria, but also from other Bulgarian folklore regions. Swift shoppe ring dances (horos) alternate with the exquisite women ring dances, with Pirin dances and the hefty men’s Dobrudja dancing. The choir, orchestra and soloists with their skill and talent are equal partners which shape the overall stage picture. PIRIN, the Bulgarian ensemble for songs and dances, is a generous gift to the world! - This recognition comes from Columbia Concert House, USA and it summarizes in one sentence the creative achievements of the ensemble and its impact on the viewers.

Choir of St. Alexander Nevsky Patriarchal Cathedral, Sofia
Dimitar Dimitrov, conductor

Gega New Music Company pays special attention to featuring liturgical music in its catalogue. Up to now the company has released a number of recordings with liturgical chants, which are a part of the usual festive liturgies. This is the first complete recording in Bulgaria of the Paschal Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, in observation of the East-Orthodox canon the way it is performed at the St. Alexander Nevsky Patriarchal Cathedral, together with the choir performance, chants and the bell chimes of the Cathedral. The St. Alexander Nevsky Patriarchal Cathedral was consecrated on September 12, 1924. Three years later (1927) Apostol Nikolaev established the mixed Choir with the Cathedral, which, ever since its foundation, has taken part in all church events and festive liturgies. In 1936, Prof Dobri Hristov, a great Bulgarian composer and conductor, student of Antonin Dvorak at the Prague Conservatory, took the position of conductor. D. Hristov is the author of a number of religious works, most of which were composed especially for the Cathedral's choir and they are still present in its repertoire. After Maestro Dobri Hristov, the choir was conducted in the course of 36 years by Angel Popkonstantinov, and since 1978 his conductor has been Dimitar Dimitrov. He graduated from the ”St. John of Rila” Sofia Ecclesiastic Seminary, the “St. Kliment of Ohrid” Academy of Theology, and the State Academy of Music in Sofia. While a student, in 1967, together with his colleagues from the Academy of Theology, he founded the “St. John Koukouzeles - Angeloglasniyat” Chamber Ensemble, whose conductor he has been ever since. He has been teaching religious music at the Department of Theology with the “St. Kliment Ohridsky” Sofia University and at the “Venerable Paisii of Hilendar” Subsidiary of the Plovdiv University in Kardjali. He also reads lectures in liturgical order at the Pancho Vladigerov State Academy of Music. Gega New released the present double CD album with this unique recording to mark the 80th anniversary from the consecration of the St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. The programme is also dedicated to the 2000th anniversary of Christ's Nativity.
