CELLO CONCERTOS - R. SCHUMANN, E. ELGAR

CELLO CONCERTOS - R. SCHUMANN, E. ELGAR
ID: GD115
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Cello Collection
Subcollection: Cello and Symphony Orchestra

In her second compact disc, released by Gega New, the cellist Kalina Krusteva has included two magnificent concertos giving testimony to her performing mastership. For they require not only virtuosity, free from any type of technical impediments, but also a very specific emotionality, along with experience in the dramaturgy, which is very specific for both the concertos by Schumann and Elgar. Kalina Krusteva's recording speaks eloquently of her brilliant creative development (a pupil of the Prof. Pancho Vladigerov State Academy of Music in Sofia, graduate of the Royal Academy of Music - London, holder of diplomas from master classes for cellists given by Misha Mayski, Robert Cohen, Steven Isserlis, etc.)

RAINA KABAIVANSKA IN CONCERT
ID: GD166
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Vocal Collection
Subcollection: Voices and Orchestra

This CD contains some of the few Bulgarian recordings of the celebrated opera singer. It is a combination of performances made at different times and with different orchestras. Kabaivanska has made a selection of crown performances in her artistic career. It is a fact well-known to opera-music fans that after Maria Callas she is considered to be the greatest interpreter of the part of Tosca, as well as those of Adriana Lecouvreur, Mimi from "La Boheme", Elisabeth from "Don Carlos". Thus the CD acquires the value of a retrospective registration of Kabaivanska's vocal style in a later stage of her artistic career.

GEORGI MINTCHEV - COMPOSITIONS
ID: GD204
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Orchestral Works
Subcollection: Orchestra

The compositions presented in this programme were created during the 90ies of the last century and illustrate the composer's sensitivity and confession. His messages to the public are emotional, especially as far as Fahrenheit 451 Symphonic Suite from the Ballet is concerned. The other work is SentiMetal Concerto for Violoncello and Orchestra, one of the composer's most outspokenly lyrical works. A little sentiment, a little metal, this is an explanation, characteristic of the author's paradoxical thinking and sense of humour. This work, commissioned by the Dutch Radio NOS expresses the author's evolution in style, his sound and timbre diversity, virtuosity, dynamics, and fantasy.

Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

Dimitar Tapkoff was born in Sofia in 1929. He graduated in composition under the great Bulgarian composer Marin Goleminov. He has worked in succession in the Bulgarian National Radio, Sofia National Opera, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, the State Academy of Music, the Ministry of Culture. Currently he is Professor in composition at the Academy of Music and Dance Art in Plovdiv, and Director of the Sofia Music Weeks International Music Festival.
Tapkoff began writing music when the post-war avant-guard was fully embraced by a part of the Bulgarian composers, while others supported the national art, and still others followed the traditions of classical "modern". He is closest to the third group and admits that: "I would not say that I am a champion of a modern concept about music. I claim that I stand behind a music concept of my own, no matter what the fashionable trends are." He has always stressed on the possibility to use well-known structures and forms, at the same time incorporating music, which is close to the contemporary listener. His works have often been performed in Bulgaria and abroad. Tapkoff is holder of a number of home and international distinctions, among which the First Prize of the International Composer's Rostrum in Paris '76 for his Peace Cantata. He has composed works in different genres: concertos, overtures, symphonies, solo and choir songs, etc.

Type: CD
Collection: Opera Collection

The experts define Stefan Elenkov (1937-97) as "a bass with a timbre rich in overtones and voice with piercing power". These qualities combined with his priceless training with Prof. Christo Brambarov, his further studies in Palermo and the great experience on the stage place him amongst the most stunning opera singers. His career was connected mostly with the Sofia Opera House (1966-97). But Elenkov had also sang as guest-artist in numerous famous opera theatres: the Metropolitan Opera in New York, La Scala in Milan, the State Opera Theatre in Vienna, Teatro del Liceo in Barcelona, Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, in opera performances in Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Israel, Brasil, France, the USA, etc. His repertoire included all the big bass parts: Mephistopheles from Faust (Gounod), Fiesco from Simon Boccanegra (Verdi), Khan Kontchak from Prince Igor (Borodin), Prince Khovansky and Dossifey from Khovanshchina (Mussorgsky), King Philip and the Inquisitor from Don Carlos (Verdi) and many others. Some of them are included in this CD. The recordings were made in different periods of his rich artistic career but the constant trends in all of them are his incredibly beautiful voice, his high level of professionalism and captivating artistry.

CONTEMPORARY BULGARIAN COMPOSERS - Vol. 2

CONTEMPORARY BULGARIAN COMPOSERS - Vol. 2
ID: GD252
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Orchestral Works
Subcollection: Orchestra

The second CD of the series presenting the contemporary Bulgarian composers, project of the Soros Center for the Arts, includes music by five representatives of three generations of tonal masters. Their compositions demonstrate a rich palette of ideas and aesthetic preferences, so characteristic of the Bulgarian school from the last three decades of the 20th century. Alexander Tanev, known for his excellent choral works and cantatas, often combines in his symphonic works academic principles of construction with the most modern resources of our century, while the younger Alexander Kandov looks for a new expressiveness and has directed himself to original themes in his symphonic works. Simeon Pironkoff's Night Music is among the author's most representative and bright opuses, appealing to the listener with the refined sound and elegant melodic line. The same can be said about the Fantasia by Plamen Djouroff, a prominent Bulgarian composer and conductor. Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Haendel are representative of Krassimir Kyurkchiiski's art of composing. The author demonstrates his mastery of handling the Baroque forms, introducing in them the outlook and interpretation of a contemporary musician.

CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choir

The first half of the 20th century marks the appearance of a number of talented and prolific composers and musicians in Bulgarian musical culture. One of them is Petko Stainov (1986-1977) - a composer, pedagogue, and musical activist. Petko Stainov was born in Kazanlak, which was then famous for its music traditions. After hurting one of his eyes, he lost his sight completely when he was 11. In 1915 he graduated from the Institute for the Blind in Sofia. Then he studied piano with Andrei Stoyanov and made his early attempts at recording. He furthered his studies in Germany and after returning to Bulgaria played an active part in the country's music life. His first major work was the Thracian Dances symphonic suite in three movements (1925). Later he added an additional movement to the suite, Mechkarsko (The Bear's Dance, 1926). His other works include the symphonic poems A Legend (1927), and Thrace (1937), the symphonic suite A Fairy Tale (1930), Symphonic Scherzo (1930), two symphonies (1945 and 1949), etc. Along with his symphonic work, he also created remarkable choral pieces - from songs for different choral formations up to large-scope dramatic ballads. In both genres he adapted the expressive means of the European musical tradition to the Bulgarian vision of the world. He thus created a musical style of his own combining in a perfect manner Bulgarian rhythm and tunes with European musical trends
The present release features some of the composer's symphonic and choral works, recorded by the best Bulgarian orchestras and choirs.

At the time when the great opera singer Montserrat Caballe had a concert-recital in Sofia, she chose to present to the audience one of her students - the young singer Ina Kancheva. This was not only an indication of politeness to the host country. Ina Kancheva's performance was brilliant and she proved to be a worthy partner to her world-famous teacher. Ina Kancheva was born in Sofia and while still a child, she showed a talent for singing (between 1986 and 1994 she was member and soloist of the Bulgarian National Radio Children's Choir). In 1996-2000 she was a student at the Pancho Vladigerov State Academy of Music in Sofia, in Associate Professor Jasmina Kostova's class. In the 1997-1998 period she specialized at the European Opera Centre in Manchester. Since the year 2000 she has been a regular participant in Montserrat Caballe's master classes in Andorra, and since 2001 she has been working with Raina Kabaivanska. Ina Kancheva has taken part in a number of prestigious international festivals, in numerous gala concerts and opera performances in Bulgaria and throughout the world. She has performed on the opera stages of Stara Zagora, Varna, Plovdiv, Andorra, Sarajevo, Skopje, Madrid, etc. She has been constantly enriching her repertoire and currently it includes many of the major soprano parts along with some rarely performed parts in works like Carl Orff's Carmina Burana and Sergei Rachmaninoff's The Bells.
