MALE CHOIR OF SVETA NEDELYA CATHEDRAL - SOFIA
ID: GD114
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music
Subcollection: Choir

Recorded at the St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Sofia, in 1999

This is yet another release from the series of Slavonic Orthodox Chants in Gega New's catalogue. The Male Choir of the Sveta Nedelya Cathedral in Sofia is one of the oldest Bulgarian church choirs, whose foundation (1897) and development is associated with the name of the great Bulgarian musician Nikolai Nikolaev. He is one of the founding fathers of musical life in Bulgaria, and is connected with the establishment of some of the first musical institutions in the country. Currently, the choir is directed by Kiril Popov and he has dedicated this programme to the 2000th anniversary of the birth of Jesus Christ. The release presents chants from the All Night Vigil and the Holy Liturgy, strictly observing the order of performance in the Divine Service used in common practice nowadays. Some of the chants are original works by Petar Dinev and Dobri Hristov (Bulgaria), and by the Russian composers Alexander Grechaninov, Pavel Chesnokov, Ipolitov-Ivanov, etc. The release also includes arrangements made by different musicians throughout the years. The authentic sounding as well as the participation of priests makes this recording invaluable. The performance of the choir has achieved the characteristic emotional and psychological effect resulting from the diction and the manner of sounding.

SOFIA "MADRIGAL" CHOIR - Monteverdi - Gesualdo - Schütz - STOYAN KRALEV, conductor

SOFIA "MADRIGAL" CHOIR - Monteverdi - Gesualdo - Schütz - STOYAN KRALEV, conductor
ID: GD174
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Baroque
Subcollection: Choir

The CD includes works by famous composers from the epoch of late-Renaissance and Baroque. Claudio Monteverdi, the creator of the first important operas in the history of Europe's art of music, is represented by eight works. The songs and the psalms performed by the Sofia Madrigal Choir, specialised in the interpretation of Renaissance and Baroque music, demonstrate not only Monteverdi's exceptional ability to develop polyphonic compositions but also his mastery of the new emotional style strongly influenced by Italian folklore. Secular or sacred, these works are imbued with a sincere emotion and with the humanistic spirit of the time. They demonstrate a new attitude towards the text set to music and the melodic invention of Monteverdi, who lived and worked in the second half of the 16th and the first half of the 17th centuries. Carlo Gesulado, his near contemporary, also created models of madrigal art, sparkling with creative wit and invention, featuring virtuosity and poetry. And next to them ranks the German composer Heinrich Schutz, who laid the foundations of the Baroque style in German music. He is the author of many remarkable sacred works - passions, masses, madrigals, an opera, one ballet, vocal and instrumental opuses. The CD contains some of his secular songs, admirable for their melodiousness and beautiful vocal texture.


Soloists: Vanilia Kissyova (soprano), Nikolina Pankova (soprano), Assya Ivanova (soprano), Alis Bovarian (alto), Valentin Vassilev (tenor), Konstantin Marinski (bass), Stoyanka Slavova (harpsichord, spinet, organ), Vesselina Korchakova (spinet), Angel Stankov (violin), Yossif Radionov (violin), Bogomil Karakonov (cello), Nikolai Tonev (lute)

The Bulgarian National Radio Children's Choir under the baton of Hristo Nedyalkov present the most popular Christmas songs like Jingle Bells, Silent Night, Holy Night, Oh Christmas Tree, as well as Bulgarian carols by Dobri Hristov, Angel Bukureshtliev, Petko Stainov, Marin Goleminov, etc. The songs by Hristo Nedyalkov with which several generations of Bulgarian children grew up are also very popular.
Hristo Nedyalkov, the well-known choral conductor, founded the Bulgarian National Radio Children's Choir in 1960. For a short time it established itself as one of the elite Bulgarian choirs because of its crystal sound, its incredible sense of style, content and mood of each song, its rich repertoire including works from different ages, from the 17th century up to modern time, both by Bulgarian and foreign composers. The choir's concerts in Bulgaria and around the world (the Children's Choir has performed in almost 30 countries) are a true festive occasion for the connoisseurs of the art of choral singing. The choir's success is due mainly to its chief conductor Hristo Nedyalkov and his talent to work with children. The famous choir expert communicates his experience and knowledge to students, choral conductors, music experts, guests from abroad and music teachers. This way his work with the Bulgarian National Radio Children's Choir becomes a true school for choral art.

The first boys' choir in Sofia was founded in 1968. The idea of the founder Lilyana Todorova was to introduce a new model in the tradition of Bulgarian choral singing. Sofia Boys' Choir established itself quickly in Bulgarian choral art. Its repertoire has been especially varied after 1989, when conductor of the choir became Adriana Blagoeva. Members of the choir are boys aged between 8 and 15, who are trained by experienced teachers on a special curriculum. As many as 1500 children have been trained in the choir since its foundation. Its repertoire includes dozens of works composed between the 15th to the end of the 20th centuries and also embraces works by Bulgarian composers. The choir has always won prestigious prizes when participating at international competitions and festivals and its concerts have been loudly applauded both by the audience and the critics. The choir's conductor, Adriana Blagoeva, graduated from the Pancho Vladigerov State Academy of Music in Sofia majoring in choral conducting. She has worked actively for the choir's fame as a serious choral ensemble of high quality, capable of interpreting works ranging from songs to oratorios.

Orthodox Chants - Orlin Anastassov, bass

Orthodox Chants - Orlin Anastassov, bass
ID: GD296
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music
Subcollection: Choir

A young Bulgarian bass singer has been recently having spectacular success at the biggest opera stages throughout the world. Critics compare him to Samuel Ramey and other opera singers, but they always stress on the slight Slavonic edge to his voice. Orlin Anasatssov is only 26 years old but the list of roles he has sung is amazing: Ramphis in Aida, Filippo II in Don Carlos, Basilio in Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Ferrando in Il Trovatore, the bass parts in Somnambula and Norma, La Boheme, Rigoletto, Puritani, Ernani, Macbeth, Attila, Simoe Boccanegra, Faust, etc. - all of them difficult roles, sung by only a few opera singers. He has participated at Covent Garden in London, the Paris Grand Opera, La Scala in Milan, Teatro Liceu in Barcelona, Dusseldorf, Arena di Verona, Teatro Real in Madrid, Rome, Karlsruhe, Toulouse, Amsterdam, Washington, Trieste, Palma de Mallorca, Puerto Rico, Lima in Peru, Palermo … It is impossible to mention all opera theatres and towns which he has visited as guest singer. Among the conductors he has worked with are the names of Sir Colin Davis, Georges Pretre, Mark Elder, Daniel Oren, Riccardo Chailly. Along with opera singing, Orlin Anastassov is also attracted to singing Orthodox chants and just as the great singer Boris Christoff, he also indulges in studying church music. This programme is a result of this. The booklet of the CD includes the texts to the chants in three languages: Church-Slavonic, Bulgarian, and English.
Neofit, Metropolitan of Rousse writes in the CD booklet: "Orlin is a new and precious pearl of Bulgarian opera art, a cause of praise for the town of Rousse and Bulgaria. With admiration and indebtedness he dedicates his present work to the 90th anniversary of the birth of the unforgettable Boris Christoff. And with his youthful zeal for the boundless heights of art he recalls to us the flight of the eagle…".

Antoine Brumel - Hilliard Live 3, Live Recording- Hilliard Ensemble

Antoine Brumel - Hilliard Live 3, Live Recording- Hilliard Ensemble
ID: COR16052
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Renaissance

The Hilliard Ensemble's Hilliard Live series, now three discs strong with a fourth on the way, has offered superior live performances of Renaissance and Medieval sacred pieces. These male singers mix clarity and a kind of gutsy lyricism that are rare in performances of this music but in their hands seems totally appropriate. The programs are based on a good deal of scholarly investigation and aim to communicate something of the contexts in which it would originally have been used -- the Antoine Brumel Missa Victimae paschali laudes heard here is interspersed with motets and Italian-language laude -- monophonic devotional pieces. (It may seem odd to hear Italian [actually Old Tuscan] in the middle of a mass, but these pieces apparently took on liturgical use.) There is nothing "scholarly" about the performances, however.

The Hilliard Ensemble is one of the world's finest vocal chamber groups, and is probably unrivalled for its formidable reputation in the fields of both early and new music. This series was only previously available direct from the group but has never before been fully available at international retail.
