PIETRO PAOLO BUGEJA - MESSA SOLENNE - SINFONIA

PIETRO PAOLO BUGEJA - MESSA SOLENNE - SINFONIA
ID: GR92
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music
Subcollection: Choir

This is the ninth compact disc issued as a result of the initiative of APS Bank of Malta to record a series of CDs with sacred music composed by Maltese composers (released on the Gega New label). The previous CDs presented works of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. This release takes us back to the 19th century and to one of Malta’s most prominent composers - Pietro Paolo Bugeja. He had initial musical studies in Malta and then went on to Naples to continue them in the Concervatorio di Saint ’Onofrio a Capuana between 1791 and 1797. It was in Naples that he wrote his first grand mass for the liturgy of St. Ivo’s Church. In 1798 he returned to Malta and was assistant to Francesco Azopardi, metrolpolitan maestro di capella at St. John’s Cathedral in Valletta. On Azopardi’s death he was selected to succeed him as maestro both of Mdina Cathedral and St. John’s Cathedral.
Bugeja was a composer, conductor and teacher. This versatile activity contributed a lot to the development of his style as a composer.
Pietro Paolo Bugeja wrote Messa solenne in 1827, mainly to be performed in the Cathedral. A very important element of the Messa solenne is its concise form. It was one of the 19th century’s best-known works. Besides it Bugeja also composed four funeral masses, 20 medium masses, 30 psalms, diverse hymns, antiphons and responses. His orchestral works include 9 sinfonie, probably written for church use, since contemporary norm required a sinfonia to precede important liturgical rites. For this purpose, Bugeja also utilized the sinfonia composed for his oratorio Gioas re di Guida - a large-scale orchestral work, written in the ‘seria’ style. According to Professor Richard Divall of the Faculty of Music, University of Melbourne, “the music of Pietro Paolo Bugeja is unjustly neglected, for the standard of his vocal and orchestral writing is very fine indeed. Stylistically Bugeja looks both back in time to the neo classicism of Gluck, with whom he has a stylistic affinity, and forward to the music of Spontini.”

SINFONIA in re maggiore from the oratorio Gioas re di Giuda
Performers: Anita Vella Bondin - soprano, Connie Francis Zerafa - mezzo soprano, Joseph Aquilina - tenor, Anthony Montebello - bass, The Mirabitur Choir, The Jubal Orchestra, Rev. John Galea - conductor

The composer and music pedagogue Alexander Tekeliev is the author of musical scenic works, 2 oratorios, vocal and symphonic works, symphonies for string orchestra, chamber and instrumental works, vocal cycles, solo and choral songs; music for children, solo songs for children; arrangements for folk choirs, soundtracks to films, etc. He studied at the Prof. Pancho Vladigerov State Academy of Music in Sofia and completed his master degree in composition with Prof. Vesselin Stoyanov. Alexander Tekeliev furthered his studies in composition and orchestration in Budapest with Attila Bosai (1980) and in Paris with Michel Filippo (1982). Since 1977 he has been teaching at the Prof. Pancho Vladigerov State Academy of Music and since 1991 he is Professor of Composition and Symphony Orchestration.
A great part of his works have been published in Bulgaria and throughout the world and many of them have been performed in France, Italy, Greece, Japan, Hungary, Portugal, Russia, Ukraine, Sweden, Poland, Germany, Austria, Mexico, Norway, etc.
The three compositions which are included in the present album differ greatly regarding emotional impact and expressive means. While Roots is entirely influenced by the unique Bulgarian way of singing and spirit, Symphony - Requiem No. 4 is a powerful work, dedicated to the victims of terrorism. It was inspired by the tragic events of September 11th, 2001 in New York. Even though the composer uses again the expressive means of the specific folk voices, their purpose is to reinforce the author’s suggestion of the universal tragedy. The third piece Happy Birthday is written in the style of a playful joke. The motif of the well-known song appears from behind some familiar tunes by Liszt, Puccini, Strauss, Mozart, Offenbach, Tchaikovsky… It is full of humour, ingenuity, virtuosity and profound command of the art of composing.

Folk Songs of the Four Seasons - (world premiere recording)
In Windsor Forest - (world premiere recording of this arrangement for women's voices by Guthrie Foote)

Both the Folk Songs of the Four Seasons and this arrangement of In Windsor Forest are world premiere recordings. The Folk Songs of the Four Seasons is a substantial work by Vaughan Williams, over 40 minutes long, for women’s chorus and orchestra. It is the most significant of his works never to have been recorded in any format.
The Folk Songs of the Four Seasons was commissioned by the Women’s Institute and first performed in 1950. The work has a Prologue and four sections: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
The coupling is the rare arrangement for women’s voices, by Guthrie Foote and Vaughan Williams, of the Cantata In Windsor Forest based on choruses from the opera Sir John in Love.
This new Albion recording is issued to mark the 90th birthday of Sir David Willcocks on 30 December, 2009. Sir David is world famous for his recordings for EMI and for his work at King’s College, Cambridge and the Bach Choir. For Sir David to record another major Vaughan Williams disc at the age of almost 90 is remarkable in itself and will ensure national and international interest in this recording.

In the 1960s few would have predicted that Peter Maxwell Davies would eventually write a set of Evening Canticles; yet religious texts have always been of fundamental importance to the composer, as this disc vividly demonstrates by bringing together sacred masterworks from both ends of his career. Tough, uncompromising and of surpassing beauty, Davies’ major contributions to the Anglican repertoire are given thrilling voice by these fearless champions of contemporary liturgical music.

Type: CD
Collection: Baroque

It is easy to forget that our great English choral tradition was once silenced by Act of Parliament. The Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660 ushered in one of the finest periods of English music, though the road to recovery for church music was a slow and difficult one. William Turner, then a precocious nine year-old, went on to become one of the best known composers and singers of his day. This premiere recording presents a cross section of Turner's sacred music, ranging from small-scale liturgical works to some of his grandest creations, the Te Deum and Jubilate in D.

During the last months of his life Mozart composed a Requiem, which he was not able to finish.

But whatever the reason for its creation, the Requiem is one of the greatest works of the human musical genius. The performance in this release is of prestigious Bulgarian artists, which have achieved an emotional, impressive and fascinating interpretation. The artistic value of the recording is a result of a truthful rendition of the emotions and the meaning of the different movements of the Requiem, and emphasizing the melody and the details of Mozart's music.

This release can undoubtedly be ranked among the interesting interpretations of the great work of Mozart.
