ROBERT SCHUMANN - Gesänge für Frauenstimmen

ROBERT SCHUMANN - Gesänge für Frauenstimmen
ID: GD144
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choir

Almost all songs included in this release were composed in the forties of the 19th century, a time of elation for Schumann, who had finally found real happiness in life. His lyrical songs are an expression of his innermost feelings of joy, sorrow, delight and inspirations connected with the poetry of his beloved Moerike, Ruekert, Eichendorff, Elisabeth Kulmann and other German poets who have been a source of inspiration for many composers of romantic music. Selected with much precision, the lyrical songs reveal Schumann's talent in shaping the small, always exquisitely woven musical form, his musical gift to create images, metaphors, characters, and natural scenery. The interpretation of singers and choir-masters alike is magnificent with its sincere emotion, subtle nuances of sound and colour, keen feeling for ensemble and perfect intonation.

NIGHTINGALES - VASSIL ARNAUDOV - SOFIA CHAMBER CHOIR
ID: GD195
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choir

The CD includes 23 songs performed by the female chamber choir founded in 1966 and bearing the name of the great choral conductor Vassil Arnaudov after his death. A number of the songs have been practised and sung many times under his direction and it is in this sense that the CD is of retrospective and commemorative character. The ensemble demonstrates its great scope of repertoire, performing works from the Renaissance, Classicism, and the 20th century. Many of the works have long become emblematic for the choir. The Vassil Arnaudov Sofia Chamber Choir is also deeply connected with the Bulgarian compositional output. Some of the works have been performed for the first time by the choir.

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.

Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choir

The conductor Vassil Arnaudov is an example of high musical culture and mastership in the development of Bulgarian conductor art. Even today, 12 years after his death, we still remember his top achievements. During his creative art he visited many places in Bulgaria so as to help a lot of conductors and choirs. He passed his knowledge with deep love to his students, and a number of them have become famous choir conductors. His greatest achievement is with the Sofia Chamber Choir and the “Rodina” Choir in Rousse. Part of the magnificent performances of the Sofia Chamber Choir have been included in the present release, which is dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Vassil Arnaudov’s birth. The programme features Bulgarian composers, whom the conductor had a great respect for. His collaboration with different composers has often provoked the creation of works specially written for the Sofia Chamber Choir. Admirers of choral singing will find some of them in the present release.
