Collection: Opera & Vocal Collection

The famous bass Nicola Ghiuselev performs together with the young and already celebrated singers Alexandrina Pendatchanska and Valdimir Stoyanov duets from some of the most loved and widely performed Verdi operas. Still fairly unusual as a genre, this CD of opera ensemble excerpts offers the opportunity of getting to know and appreciating the vocalists' artistic mastery from a different point of view. The duets feature the musicality of the participating couples, alongside with their ability to co-ordinate and combine phrases, moods, feelings and to convey the protagonist's characteristic states, expressed in a harmonious musical sound. They depict vividly Leonora's soul, torn by grief, seeking for Padre Guardiano's kind and wise support; Attila, the cruel warrior and barbarian conqueror, who gradually realises the urgent plea of Ezio, the Roman, trying to convince him to have mercy on his native Italy. Each of the duets contains dramatic and psychological clashes and they all demonstrate the performers' unity, achieved by the soprano Pendatchanska, baritone Stoyanov and Nicola Ghiuselev, whom we hear in all recordings, with exquisite brilliance, both vocal and emotional, and perfect sense of musicality. The CD of Verdi opera duets is original not only for the idea and its realisation but also for the selection of musical excerpts which combine bass with soprano or baritone.

Christian musical tradition in Bulgaria dates back long before Christianity was established as an official state religion (865). According to some records a Christian church convention took place in Serdica (Sofia) in the 4th century. It is believed that the church chants of that time differed from the Byzantium church music. When East Orthodox religion was adopted as a state religion in Bulgaria, King Boris I put an end to this tradition. The Byzantium liturgical services and chants were enforced. Byzantium church music was dominant up to the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century, in spite of the recurrent resistance of various groups of society. However, a few sources from that time show that there were attempts to create Bulgarian church music. The works of St. John Koukouzeles date from that time (13-14th c.). This tendency for developing Bulgarian church music was stopped when the country went under Ottoman rule (14th c.). At the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century a new movement for reviving the Bulgarian church tradition began. Some Byzantium chants were translated into Slavonic language, and parallel to that original Bulgarian Orthodox chants were created. After the liberation from the Ottoman rule (1878), the service liturgies of the Russian Orthodox Church became dominant. A large number of Bulgarian composers wrote works for the church. They used elements of Old Bulgarian chants and reached the level of the Russian liturgical music. Dobri Hristov, for example, wrote liturgies dedicated to priests and they are still performed at church services. In his first liturgy of St. John Chrysostom he uses Old Bulgarian intonations.
The liturgical chants of Dobri Hristov, Peter Dinev, Apostol Nikolaev-Stroumsky, etc. are a inherent part of church services, just as the Russian chants by Alexander Grechaninov, Pavel Chesnokov, Nikolai Bakhmetiev …

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.

Seventeen arias selected not only from his repertoire but also from the bass repertoire treasury is what Nicola Ghiuselev recorded in 1996, the year of his 60th anniversary. This laid the beginning of a series of his recordings with Gega New. The CD represents not only his wide repertoire but also his performing abilities and gives an idea of the artist's excellent vocal form, mastery and technique. The listener can also feel his amazing vitality, musical memory, and culture of style.
