IVAN PETROV-IOCHAN - Orthodox Liturgy - Christi Geburt 2000

IVAN PETROV-IOCHAN - Orthodox Liturgy - Christi Geburt 2000
ID: GD237

Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music
Subcollection: 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

Sofia Madrigal Choir conducted by Prof. Stoyan Kralev has been present in Bulgaria's musical life for more than a quarter of a century now.

"Gloria" was also created on a Latin cult text and is a work enjoying great popularity in our days. 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.

SOFIA "MADRIGAL" CHOIR - Monteverdi - Gesualdo - Schütz - STOYAN KRALEV, conductor

SOFIA "MADRIGAL" CHOIR - Monteverdi - Gesualdo - Schütz - STOYAN KRALEV, conductor
ID: GD174
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Baroque
Subcollection: Choir

The CD includes works by famous composers from the epoch of late-Renaissance and Baroque. Claudio Monteverdi, the creator of the first important operas in the history of Europe's art of music, is represented by eight works. The songs and the psalms performed by the Sofia Madrigal Choir, specialised in the interpretation of Renaissance and Baroque music, demonstrate not only Monteverdi's exceptional ability to develop polyphonic compositions but also his mastery of the new emotional style strongly influenced by Italian folklore. Secular or sacred, these works are imbued with a sincere emotion and with the humanistic spirit of the time. They demonstrate a new attitude towards the text set to music and the melodic invention of Monteverdi, who lived and worked in the second half of the 16th and the first half of the 17th centuries. Carlo Gesulado, his near contemporary, also created models of madrigal art, sparkling with creative wit and invention, featuring virtuosity and poetry. And next to them ranks the German composer Heinrich Schutz, who laid the foundations of the Baroque style in German music. He is the author of many remarkable sacred works - passions, masses, madrigals, an opera, one ballet, vocal and instrumental opuses. The CD contains some of his secular songs, admirable for their melodiousness and beautiful vocal texture.


Soloists: Vanilia Kissyova (soprano), Nikolina Pankova (soprano), Assya Ivanova (soprano), Alis Bovarian (alto), Valentin Vassilev (tenor), Konstantin Marinski (bass), Stoyanka Slavova (harpsichord, spinet, organ), Vesselina Korchakova (spinet), Angel Stankov (violin), Yossif Radionov (violin), Bogomil Karakonov (cello), Nikolai Tonev (lute)

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 …
