KONSTANTIN ILIEV - COMPOSITIONS

KONSTANTIN ILIEV - COMPOSITIONS
ID: GD139
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Orchestral Works
Subcollection: Orchestra

This is the first release of one of the most praised and denied creative artists of the Bulgarian school of composing. His works have always been subject to controversy, most often ending with the repudiation of the respective opus. Still, with his very first compositions he established himself as an innovator, vanguard author, relentless to the commonplace and the conventional in constant search of new roads for the Bulgarian musical output. The album has the character of a retrospection tracing down the development of a talent. The combination of Iliev's Concerto Grosso (1949-50) - one of his earliest works in the traditions of post-neoclassicism, with his Fragments (1968) and his last Sixth Symphony (1984-85), gives an idea of the author's enormous creative and intellectual potential. Iliev himself conducts his Fragments, dedicated to the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra directed by him with love and inspiration. The other conductors featured in this CD, Vassil Kazandjiev and Yordan Dafov, are two of the composer's closest friends and colleagues.

Performed by: A, Dikov (piano), D. Paliev (kettle-drums), D. Boboshevski (xylophone), I. Lazarov (drums)

Collection: Vocal Collection
Subcollection: Voices and Orchestra

Gideon Waldrop (b. 1919, Texas) is presented in this release with five compositions created in the decades after World War II: Symphony No. 1 (1951), Suite for Orchestra from the Southwest (1964), Songs of the Southwest for Baritone and Chamber Orchestra (1983), Prelude and Fugue (1963), and Pressures (1955). In the compositions one can clearly trace the influence of the American folklore and, according to the composer's words, that of the Mexican songs, Waldrop's skills in orchestration, as well as the combination of primitive melodies and interesting modal patterns, the counter-pointing European techniques and his mastery in building up complicated polyphonic figures.

GEORGI TUTEV - COMPOSITIONS

GEORGI TUTEV - COMPOSITIONS
ID: GD215
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Cello

The release features three of the most outstanding opuses of Georgi Tutev, a representative of Bulgaria 's music avant-garde. The composer wrote a relatively small number of opuses, mainly in the chamber-instrumental and symphonic genres. The years of work on almost every composition of his speak of mature consideration and precision, of logical coherence. In Tutev's music one finds artistic achievements worthy of respect, rather than mere experiments. The first piece on this CD, Metamorphoses for 13 Stringed Instruments belongs to the early period of his work, while Longing for the Lost Harmony presents the composer both as a musician and as a philosopher. Here he expressed in sounds his thoughts and feelings regarding music technique - in the perspective of the time that has passed from 18th c. classicism to the last decades of the 20th century, when the harmonic supports and rules that were once set by composers like Haydn and Mozart were finally rejected. Tutev's aim was to make a dialogue with that long-passed time and its aesthetics. His "longings" lead the listener to the spiritual world of the composer, who longs for the lost harmony between Man and Nature, between mankind itself. The composition of Calvinomuosaik is very original. This is one of the last pieces of Georgi Tutev. It was written on commission of the German Radio, Cologne and the composer's inspiration for writing it came from the novel "The Invisible Cities" by the Italian writer Italo Calvino.
