SOFIA BOYS' CHOIR - BRITTEN & PERGOLESI

SOFIA BOYS' CHOIR - BRITTEN & PERGOLESI
ID: GD153
Disk: 1
Type: CD
Kolekce: Choral CollectionPodkolekce: Choir

Among the numerous works of the great English composer Benjamin Britten the opuses associated with the English religious musical traditions from the Renaissance epoch deserve a special mention. Among them stands out Missa Brevis, performed by the Sofia Boys' Choir and the organist Atanas Atanassov with remarkable musicality and vivid portraying of each of the five movements of the Missa. To combine Britten with the Italian composer Pergolesi is an excellent idea of Adriana Blagoeva, the conductor, who has worked out in details and in a very good style the poly-movement composition Stabat Mater - a classical example in the genre. The solo parts performed by the famous opera singer Hristina Angelakova, mezzo-soprano, and the soprano Theodora Gabrovska are incorporated in the magnificent sounding of the children's choir. Pergolesi's music captivates with its melody, harmonic symmetry, contrasting character and mastership in interlacing the motifs in a polyphonic construction, all that sung in excellent sonority

Type: CD
Kolekce: Choral CollectionPodkolekce: Choir

In its third CD the Sofia Boys' Choir presents sacred music for choir and organ by Mozart, Gounod and Zelioli. With the musicianship already known to the fans of the choir, the boys sing the Masses by Gounod and Zelioli, an Italian composer and organ player from the first half of the 20th century. The international choral competition in Lecco is established in his name and the First Prize of this competition was awarded to the Sofia Boys' Choir. Zelioli's mass Laudate Dominum omnes gentes, as well as Messa facile et melodica are sung by the choir with exquisiteness of sound and crystal-clear voices, both qualities required by this style of music. The conductor, Adriana Blagoeva has not only fathomed the musical essence of the West-European ecclesiastic singing, but she has added liveliness and expressiveness to the pieces, revealing to the listener the deep meaning of the religious texts. Thus, everyone who hears the pieces included in this CD will feel not only the satisfaction from their musical perfection,

ID: GD128
Disk: 1
Type: CD
Kolekce: Sacred MusicPodkolekce: Choir

Recorded live in Bulgaria Concert Hall, Sofia, April 14, 1998

The CD offers to cult-music lovers a gem from the work of Joseph HAYDN, popular mainly for his symphonies, concertos and two oratorios. The great Austrian has been connected with sacred music since childhood as choir-member and soloist of the famous boys' choir of the St. Stephen Cathedral in Vienna in the course of ten years. Among his numerous religious compositions was the orchestral work, commissioned for the consecration of the church in Cadiz, Spain, and later revised into a vocal-instrumental opus for soloists, choir and orchestra. It is for this reason that its separate parts bear purely instrumental names, "Sonata". Each of them begins with the Saviour's words on the cross. The work ends with the brief yet shattering Terremoto, depicting the earthquake after Christ's death. The recording was made under the baton of French conductor Guy CONDETTE, Music Director of the Limoges Opera Theatre and Philharmonic who has toured with most famous French, German, Austrian, Italian, Spanish, etc. orchestras and opera theatres.

ROBERT SCHUMANN - Gesänge für Frauenstimmen

ROBERT SCHUMANN - Gesänge für Frauenstimmen
ID: GD144
Disk: 1
Type: CD
Kolekce: Choral CollectionPodkolekce: Choir

Almost all songs included in this release were composed in the forties of the 19th century, a time of elation for Schumann, who had finally found real happiness in life. His lyrical songs are an expression of his innermost feelings of joy, sorrow, delight and inspirations connected with the poetry of his beloved Moerike, Ruekert, Eichendorff, Elisabeth Kulmann and other German poets who have been a source of inspiration for many composers of romantic music. Selected with much precision, the lyrical songs reveal Schumann's talent in shaping the small, always exquisitely woven musical form, his musical gift to create images, metaphors, characters, and natural scenery. The interpretation of singers and choir-masters alike is magnificent with its sincere emotion, subtle nuances of sound and colour, keen feeling for ensemble and perfect intonation.

A complex, multi-part composition in which Madrigal demonstrates vocal and stylistic mastery, superb sounding, and excellent command of Baroque technique of performance with its rich ornamentation and reserve.

Nicola Ghiuselev - Orthodox Chants

Nicola Ghiuselev - Orthodox Chants
ID: GD201
Disk: 1
Type: CD
Kolekce: Sacred MusicPodkolekce: Choir

The CD furthers the development of one of the main repertoire trends in the production of Gega New, liturgical music performed by Bulgarian singers and ensembles. At the same time, this is the company's third release of the world-famous Bulgarian opera singer Nicola Ghiuselev. The interpretation of East-Orthodox chants is a sphere which no other Bulgarian singer has dared to approach after the death of Boris Christoff, the great bass. Ghiuselev's success is all the more significant, if we take into consideration the fact that alongside his attitude and musical skills he also demonstrates a deep penetration into the musical and poetic text of the chants. By achieving the sound specific for the genre and giving up the bel canto vocal characteristics Ghiuselev raises up his prayers and glorifies God with all the appropriate reservedness and beauty of the musical line. All chants are by Bulgarian and Russian composers, known for both their church and secular music. Melodic and beautifully harmonized, they render the atmosphere of pious and peaceful resignation. Ghiuselev's bass is in perfect harmony with the resounding sonority of the Sofia Orthodox Choir.

IVAN PETROV-IOCHAN - Orthodox Liturgy - Christi Geburt 2000

IVAN PETROV-IOCHAN - Orthodox Liturgy - Christi Geburt 2000
ID: GD237
Disk: 1
Type: CD
Kolekce: Sacred MusicPodkolekce: Choir

Christ's birth is one of the most glorious Christian holidays. The holiday church service within the Orthodox tradition is accompanied with very beautiful chants. The works performed are usually by anonymous authors or Bulgarian and Russian composers from the end of 19th and the beginning of 20th centuries. In most cases they know thoroughly the exigencies of the church canon. That is the reason for this music to have such a purifying effect not only on the believers but on the admirers of good music too. For all of them is the release dedicated to the 2000 anniversary of Christ's birth, containing music by Ivan Petrov-Iochan. The liturgy is created by a contemporary composer, which is an exceptionally rare phenomenon for the work of the Bulgarian composers from the end of the 20th century. One must have courage to interfere in such a delicate and severely canonical matter. Besides, one needs serious training, profound knowledge and a sense of proportion to feel to what extent to use secular intonations. Therefore the connoisseurs of Orthodox musical tradition will be pleasantly surprised by the skill of Ivan Petrov-Iochan, who combines the exigencies of the Orthodox Church with elements of the secular vocal music. The education the composer received at the Seminary and the Theological Academy in Sofia, and his practice in the most famous Bulgarian choirs (the Svetoslav Obretenov Bulgarian Philharmonic Choir, Joan Kukuzel Angeloglasniat, Gusla, Kaval, the choir to the Alexander Nevsky Memorial Cathedral, the choir of the Opera Theatre in Sofia, etc.) are the base on which he builds up his work. The sound is very authentic, thanks to the exclamations and the chime of the bells, as in a true holiday liturgy.


Soloists: Ivan Petrov-Iochan (bass), Nikola Ghiuselev (bass), Nikolina Pankova (soprano), Noi Nikolov (tenor), Alexandrina Milcheva (mezzo-soprano)
Exaltations: Ivan Petrov-Iochan, Noi Nikolov

Type: CD
Kolekce: Choral CollectionPodkolekce: Choir

This is the second album of the Bulgarian Choral Art series (Vol. 1 - GD 244). The programme includes works by Bulgarian composers, created as arrangements on the basis of original folk melodies or inspired by the Bulgarian folk music traditions. Ever since their foundation, the choirs in Bulgaria included in their repertoires mainly medleys of Bulgarian folk songs. Since then dates the close connection between choral creativity and performance, and the folk song became one of the main intonational sources. Many of the folk-based songs thus created became emblematic for Bulgarian choral art.
