The famous Italian composer, conductor, critic and pedagogue Ildebrando Pizzetti (1880-1968) is almost unknown in Bulgaria. He worked as a conductor in Parma, Florence and was Director of the Milan Conservatoire and teacher in composition at the St. Cecilia Academy in Rome. He was also a music critic for leading newspapers and wrote essays for various specialised books and magazines. Parallel to that he wrote a number of works in different genres - operas, ballets, oratorios, symphonies, a wide range of chamber music, choral music and film music. The compositions included in the present programme of Seeli Toivio and Ivo Varbanov were written during the 1920s. This release is the world premiere of both these works.
Seeli Toivio was born in Finland. She studied in Helsinki, Budapest and London with well-known teachers. She has taken part in masterclasses with Gary Hoffmann, William Pleeth, Steven Isserlis, Steven Doane, Zara Nelsova, and Ralph Kirshbaum. She won 1st prize in BBC Radio 2 Young Musician of the Year 1997, and 1st place with a special prize in duo with Ivo Varbanov at the 25th International Chamber Music Competition - Finale Ligure (Italy), in 1998. During 2003-2004 she was invited to perform in Russia, Japan, Germany, Estonia, and Finland.
Ivo Varbanov was born in Bulgaria and studied in Milan and London with Ylonka Deckers, Sulamita Aronowsky, Frank Wibaut and Dennis Lee.

Modest Musorgsky - Pictures at an Exhibition -IVO VARBANOV, piano

Modest Musorgsky - Pictures at an Exhibition -IVO VARBANOV, piano
ID: GD117
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Since the age of nine, Ivo Varbanov (b. 1972) has been living and performing mainly abroad, in Milan and London, at The Royal Academy of Music, where he specialised on a grant by the Rotary Foundation (USA). He has given concerts in many countries throughout Europe. For his Bulgarian CD the pianist has chosen various pieces of Mussorgsky, as well as his masterpiece Pictures at an Exhibition. This work not only poses to the performer various difficulties with respect to technique and interpretation, but it requires a truthful rendition of the great Russian composer's unique style, a thorough understanding of the work's rich and vivid imagery, together with an ability to construct a monumental cycle serving as points of support to the overall structure. The listener will feel the scope of Varbanov's performance who is beyond doubt a talented pianist with brilliant technique who has probed deeply in Mussorgsky's style.
