Podkolekce: Voices

As a continuation of GEGA NEW's idea to present troparia and chants from the Passion Week common in the practice of East-Orthodox community, Miroslav Popsavov has selected in this programme some of the most typical for the New-Year service chants related to the wedding ceremony. The psalms glorifying God and Jesus Christ are arranged in the order required by the canons. Most of the melodies, of ancient origin, have been arranged by Russian and Bulgarian composers. The most popular among them are Mnogoletie (For Many Years) and Dostoino est (Meet It Is), which have also become concerto pieces in the repertoire of the Slavic male choirs. The CD is of interest for everybody who would want to look into the world of Orthodox music, the ancient roots of which are in the Byzantine chant and service. Later on, in Church-Slavonic singing there were not only transferred canons, troparia and various jubilation modulae, but new chants were also created on the basis of Bolgarskii rospev and the so called znamenii chant, elements of which are present in some of the works included in this release.

The programme is part of the series of liturgical music released by Gega New and contains performances of the Sofia Priest Choir established in 1947.

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

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,

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.

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.

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.
