  • Dimitar Nenov - Toccata

    8:14

    Rousse philharmonic orchestra
    Conductor Alipi Naidenov
    1976

    Dimitar Nenov (1901 — 1953) was a famous Bulgarian composer and pianist, music pegagogue, architect. He was one of the major figures of the second generation of Bulgarian composers. He studied piano privately with A. Stoyanov (1919-1920).
    Between 1920 and 1927 he studied architecture at the Technische Hochschule in Dresden, took a doctorate in art history and attended the Dresden Conservatory where he studied the piano with Karl Fehling and theory with Theodor Blumer and Paul Bitner. From 1927 to 1930 he worked in Bulgaria as an architect. After further studies in Zakopane (Poland) with the pianist Egon Petri (Italy, 1931) and receiving a diploma in Bologna (1932) he embarked on a career in music. He was founder and director of the music section at Sofia radio (1935-7), for which he made a number of folk song arrangements, and from 1937 was professor at the State Academy of Music. A co-founder of the Bulgarian Composers Society (1933), in the 1930s he took part in the debate on the Bulgarian national style, and in furtherance of this published several articles.
    Nenov was a gifted pianist and interpreter of Beethoven, Liszt and Skryabin. A successor to the Liszt-Busoni-Petri tradition, he developed the contemporary approach towards playing that combined artistry with great technical skill. As a composer, he was an outstanding representative of the Bulgarian school. The originality of his work is apparent in miniatures as well as the symphonic works, which contain complex musical ideas and an impressive dramatic quality. The Romantic expression and moments of ecstasy, for example in Vazhdeleniye (Aspiration) and Kopnezh (Desire), betray the influence of Skryabin. An integral style is reached in works which draw on the melodic and rhythmic characteristics of archaic Bulgarian folk music. In the symphonic works, the folk influence is evident in the way melodies are constructed; in the use of variation as a principle of development; and in his choice of modes, many of which are symmetrically formed and bear resemblance to the octatonic scale. His rich, sumptuous musical language relies on a functional type of harmony based on modes, while his masterful orchestrations frequently call for large wind sections and a number of unusual percussion instruments. His greatest achievements are the Piano Concerto and Rapsodichna fantazia.
    Toccata(1939) was written for piano solo but later it was orchestrated by one of Dimitar Nenov's pupils Lazar Nikolov.

  • Svetoslav Obretenov - Prespivalkap Lullaby

    2:32

    Album: Bulgarian Sketches
    Works for Cello and Piano by Bulgarian Composers

    Performers:
    Marta Simidtchieva, violoncello
    Kris Pineda, piano

    Works for cello by Bulgarian composers – the pieces in this compact disc were compiled by the cello player Marta Simidtchieva, who has recorded short original and transcribed pieces for the instrument “whose voice comes closest to that of the human being”, as we are often told. A part of the Bulgarian solo instrumental music of the 20th century has been presented through the instrumental miniature and the voice of the cello.

    The programme of this CD begins with a piece by the most famous Bulgarian composer Pancho Vladigerov, Krassimir Kyurkchiiski, Svetoslav Obretenov, Lyubomir Pipkov, Iliya Draganov, Marin Goleminov and Peter Hristoskov.

  • Vassil Kazandjiev - Complexi Sonori / Tsenov Chamber Ensemble

    12:09

    Vassil Kazandjiev - Complexi Sonori (1965)

    TSENOV CHAMBER ENSEMBLE
    Guerguan Tsenov, music director
    Lincoln Center, New York, June 4, 2016

    Vassil Kazandjiev (1934) was one of the five innovators (together with Konstantin Iliev, Lazar Nikolov, Georgi Tutev, and Ivan Spassov) of Bulgarian contemporary music, and as such was blacklisted by the communist authorities in Bulgaria for many years. A child prodigy, at the age of 13 he became the private composition student of Iliev. On the recommendation of Bulgarian composer Parashkev Hadjiev he went to study composition and orchestration at the State Academy in Sofia with Pancho Vladigerov and conducting with Vladi Simeonov. As a student his compositional style showed the influence of Vladigerov, with regard to orchestration, and Hindemith in its formal clarity and accuracy. His first notable composition was the Divertimento for small orchestra (1957). He was one of the first Bulgarian composers who wrote dodecaphonic compositions (First Piano Sonata, 1959; First String Quartet, 1966). Kazandjiev attended the Warsaw Autumn Festival in 1965. This event marked a major change in Kazandjiev’s compositional style, especially with the introduction of aleatoric elements and graphic notation, as in Complexi sonori for strings (1965). This same work was highly acclaimed following a performance given by the Sofia Soloists under the composer’s direction at the 1967 Zagreb Biennial Festival. Aspects of Bulgarian history and culture have also played an increasingly important role in his compositional processes. This is evident in his preoccupation with timbral and colouristic effects, as well as in his choice of subject matter. From the 1970s he has experimented with blending elements from Bulgarian orthodox and folk music – modal formulas, free improvisation (measureless folksongs), diaphonia, and other vocal and instrumental effects – with aleatoric devices. Some of his best-known works were composed during this period: The Living Icons (1970), Pictures from Bulgaria (1970), Apokalipsis (1976), Illuminations (1979), Triumph of the Bells (1972), Youth Album (1972), and the string quartets.
    As a youth, Kazandjiev was deeply influenced by Iliev’s and Dobrin Petkov’s conducting styles and this later led to equally impressive career as a conductor. In 1957 he became conductor at the Sofia Opera, and later in 1962 he founded the Sofia Soloists Chamber Ensemble with which he achieved international acclaim, touring Europe, Asia, and the USA; he led the ensemble until 1978. In 1963 he was appointed teacher of score reading at the State Academy and later became professor of conducting. From 1979 to 1993 he was chief conductor of the Sofia National Radio Symphony Orchestra. In nearly 40 years teaching at the National Academy of Music in Sofia (1963–2002) he established his own conducting school, which went on to produce musicians working on several continents.

    Pancho Haralanov Vladigerov (Bulgarian: Панчо Хараланов Владигеров; 13 March 1899 – 8 September 1978) was a Bulgarian composer, pedagogue, and pianist.

    Vladigerov is arguably the most influential Bulgarian composer of all time. He was one of the first to successfully combine idioms of Bulgarian folk music and classical music. Part of the so-called Second Generation Bulgarian Composers, he was among the founding members of the Bulgarian Contemporary Music Society (1933), which later became the Union of Bulgarian Composers. Vladigerov marked the beginning of a number of genres in Bulgarian music, including the violin sonata and the piano trio. He was also a very respected pedagogue; his students include practically all notable Bulgarian composers of the next generation, such as Alexander Raichev, Alexander Yossifov, Stefan Remenkov, and many others, as well as the pianist Alexis Weissenberg.

  • D.Nenov - Four sketches for orchestra - 1 .wmv

    3:51

    No.1 - Vazhdelenie - Aspiration

    Dimitar Nenov (1901 — 1953) was a famous Bulgarian composer and pianist, music pegagogue, architect. He was one of the major figures of the second generation of Bulgarian composers. He studied piano privately with A. Stoyanov (1919-1920).
    Between 1920 and 1927 he studied architecture at the Technische Hochschule in Dresden, took a doctorate in art history and attended the Dresden Conservatory where he studied the piano with Karl Fehling and theory with Theodor Blumer and Paul Bitner. From 1927 to 1930 he worked in Bulgaria as an architect. After further studies in Zakopane (Poland) with the pianist Egon Petri (Italy, 1931) and receiving a diploma in Bologna (1932) he embarked on a career in music. He was founder and director of the music section at Sofia radio (1935-7), for which he made a number of folk song arrangements, and from 1937 was professor at the State Academy of Music. A co-founder of the Bulgarian Composers Society (1933), in the 1930s he took part in the debate on the Bulgarian national style, and in furtherance of this published several articles.
    Nenov was a gifted pianist and interpreter of Beethoven, Liszt and Skryabin. A successor to the Liszt-Busoni-Petri tradition, he developed the contemporary approach towards playing that combined artistry with great technical skill. As a composer, he was an outstanding representative of the Bulgarian school. The originality of his work is apparent in miniatures as well as the symphonic works, which contain complex musical ideas and an impressive dramatic quality. The Romantic expression and moments of ecstasy, for example in Vazhdeleniye (Aspiration) and Kopnezh (Desire), betray the influence of Skryabin. An integral style is reached in works which draw on the melodic and rhythmic characteristics of archaic Bulgarian folk music. In the symphonic works, the folk influence is evident in the way melodies are constructed; in the use of variation as a principle of development; and in his choice of modes, many of which are symmetrically formed and bear resemblance to the octatonic scale. His rich, sumptuous musical language relies on a functional type of harmony based on modes, while his masterful orchestrations frequently call for large wind sections and a number of unusual percussion instruments. His greatest achievements are the Piano Concerto and Rapsodichna fantazia.

  • Pancho Vladigerov Humoresque

    1:35

    Pancho Vladigerov (1899 - 1978) was a Bulgarian composer, pedagogue and pianist.
    Pancho Vladigerov belongs to the second generation of Bulgarian composers. He was among the founding members of the Bulgarian Contemporary Music Society (1933), which later became the Union of Bulgarian Composers. He marked the beginning of a number of genres in Bulgarian music. He also established the Bulgarian composition and pedagogical school, his students including the best Bulgarian composers of the next generation. The pianist Alexis Weissenberg was his student, too.
    Vladigerov was born in Zurich, Switzerland, but lived in Shumen. He played the piano and composed since early age. He was 10 when he started studying composition with Dobri Hristov in Sofia. After his father's death in 1912, he moved to Berlin with his mother and his twin brother (the violinist Luben Vladigerov), where he enrolled at the Staatliche Akademische Hochschule fьr Musik and studied music theory and composition with Professor Paul Juon and the piano with H. Barth. In 1920 he graduated from the Academie der Kьnste having studied composition with Professor Gernsheim and Professor Georg Schumann. He won twice the Mendelssohn Prize of the Academy (in 1918 and 1920). He worked for Max Reinhardt at the Deutsches Theater in Berlin as a composer and pianist (1920-32) before returning to Sofia where he was appointed reader and then Professor (from 1940) of Piano, Chamber Music and Composition at the State Academy of Music, which after his death was named after himself.
    He composed a lot in a variety of genres. He is author of an opera; ballet; symphony music; five piano concertos; two violin concertos; chamber music; 38 transcriptions of instrumental pieces for instrument and piano; 50 folksong concert arrangements for voice and piano/orchestra; 20 songs for voice and piano; 10 choral songs with piano/orchestral; music to the theatre performances of the Deutsches Theater in Berlin, the Theater in der Josefstadt in Vienna, the National Theatre in Sofia, etc.
    The world got acquainted with Pancho Vladigerov's work in the 1920s when his pieces were published by the Universal Edition Publishers in Vienna and were released on LP by the German recording company Deutsche Gramophon before being performed throughout Europe and the USA. As a pianist and composer he toured most of the European countries performing his own works. In 1969 he was awarded the Gottfried von Herder Prize. Now a national and international competition for pianists and violinists held in Shumen has his name. The Bulgarian recording company Balkanton released an edition of his stage and symphony music in four sets of seven LPs each. Several works of his such as the Bulgarian Rhapsody Vardar for instance are considered to be emblematic of the Bulgarian music.
    HUMORESQUE is a part from miniatures Shoumen op.29 written in 1934.
    This recording is from live concert of Bulgarian pianist Veselinka Ivanova in Dartmouth college, NH on 25 February 2004

  • Elina Christova | Piano plays Alexander Vladigerov - Toccata

    7:46

    Alexander Vladigerov (1933-1993)

    TOCCATA

    Alexander Vladigerov was the son of Pancho Vladigerov (1899-1978), one of the most prominent Bulgarian composers of the Second Generation. Pancho had already successfully established ways to combine Bulgarian folk music with classical forms, a trend that was encouraged in composition during the Socialist regime.

    An accomplished conductor, composer and pianist, his son Alexander wrote stage and symphonic music and some notable pieces for the piano, among them the “Dilmano, Dilbero” Variations and the fiery Toccata, both influenced strongly by Bulgarian rhythmic and melodic traditions. Alexander Vladigerov's love of jazz, once considered a decadent Western influence in Bulgaria, shines through in both pieces, with sweeping improvisatory passages and liberal use of extended chords.

    In keeping with the genre, this toccata is extremely virtuosic, highlighting various keyboard techniques. Opening with an expansive introduction, the piece launches into the chordal theme which will reappear again in the coda. The hands exchange repeated and double notes, interspersed with exclamations typical of Bulgarian vocal folk music. In the middle of the piece arpeggios take over, calming the perpetual motion of the beginning and offering a lyric interlude. The coda begins with a return of the rhythmic drive from the opening, followed by a section featuring riffs derived straight from jazz. A clash of chords bring the piece to a close.

    The programme of this CD begins with a piece by the most famous Bulgarian composer Pancho Vladigerov, Krassimir Kyurkchiiski, Svetoslav Obretenov, Lyubomir Pipkov, Iliya Draganov, Marin Goleminov and Peter Hristoskov.

    What is this channel?

    As a composer in the 21st century, I thought it might be interesting to catalogue and share on all of the projects I have undertaken, both for your own curiosity, but also for my own personal reflection on my development as a composer, and to some extent, a practitioner.

    In short, this C List is the Chronological List for all of my major projects, including my own works, but also transcriptions and arrangements of other composer's works, educational tasks, and unfinished works that merit cataloguing.

    For each of the works, I provide a reflection (a reminiscence) about its context, how, and why I wrote it, as well as some analyses.

    On some of these projects, I have recorded the entire compositional process itself, which again may offer some insight into compositional methods of 21st century music.

  • Pancho Vladigerov - Rhythmic Movement

    2:21

    Pancho Haralanov Vladigerov was a Bulgarian composer, pedagogue, and pianist.

  • Vassil Kazandjiev TOCCATA

    5:10

    Vassil Kazandjiev was born in 1934 in Rousse, Bulgaria. At the age of 7 he started playing the guitar and two years later he learned to play the piano. At the age of 10 he started composing music. His first teachers of composition and conducting were Konstantin Iliev and Dobrin Petkov. In 1957 Kazandjiev graduated from the Bulgarian State Conservatoire in the composition class of Professor Pancho Vladiguerov and conducting with Professor Vladi Simeonov. Already as a student at the Conservatoire, he won a laureate's prize for his Sinfonietta for a large orchestra at the Sixth International Youth Festival in Moscow (1957).
    Vassil Kazandjiev started his career in conducting at the National Opera in Sofia, where he worked for seven years. During that period he staged and conducted a number of Bulgarian and foreign operas and ballets: Yana's Nine Brothers and Antigona 43 by Lyubomir Pipkov, Sly Peter by Vesselin Stoyanov, The Boyana Master by Konstantin Iliev, Othello by Verdi, Turandot by Puccini, The Magic Flute by Mozart, Sleeping Beauty by Tchaikovsky, The Wooden Prince by Bartok, and many more.
    In 1962 he founded the Sofia Soloists Chamber Ensemble with which he had very successful concerts in Bulgaria and abroad for 15 years. Since 1978 he was appointed conductor, and from 1985 until 1993 - Chief Conductor of the
    Symphony Orchestra of the Bulgarian National Radio.
    Vassil Kazandjiev combines high professionalism and broad musical culture, as well as a highly developed creative intuition. Therefore, his interpretations of works by different authors and epochs are distinguished by depth, stylistic authenticity and pointed modern sensitivity. His art has been immortalized in many recordings of the Bulgarian Radio, Balkanton, Harmonia Mundi - France, Kibaton - Japan and other companies from different countries. He has had extremely successful guest tours in many European countries, USA, Canada, Africa, Japan, South Korea, etc.
    In addition to being a remarkable conductor and pedagogue - he is professor of Orchestral Conducting at Pancho Vladiguerov State Academy of Music - Vassil Kazandjiev is one of the most talented Bulgarian composers. He is the author of a large number of symphony and chamber music works: four symphonies, a number of sonatas and instrumental concertos, Pictures from Bulgaria,LiveIcons, Apocalypse, Illumination, three string quartets, piano quintet, etc. He has also composed music for many theatre performances and films. His style is characterized by clear expressivity and artisticism, combined with a virtuoso composition technique.
    His TOCCATA for piano is written in 1957.This spontaneously written piece is the second one from V. K.'s cycle Predude and Toccata, intended for his graduatoin examine at the Music Academy. Prelude is a hundred percent Vladigerov's (a gesture of gratitude towards his teacher), but Toccata is an eloquent fact for the real creative direction of the student.
    Toccata reveals a mixed image, having in mind the style imitations, and rasembles (sounds like) toccatas of 20th sentury - from the music of Bartok, Stravinski, Prokofiev's harmonic style, Pancho Vladigerov's texture and harmonic originality, and even Chopin's etudes texture. Toccata fascinated with its dynamic story, sound richness and harmonic and rithmical ingenuity - witticism, close shape, flowing passages from one kind of technique to another, with the texture coverage over a numbers of layers, with the syncope rhythms.

  • Pancho Vladigerov Song

    2:32

    Pancho Vladigerov (1899 - 1978) was a Bulgarian composer, pedagogue, and pianist.
    Pancho Vladigerov belongs to the second generation of Bulgarian composers. He was among the founding members of the Bulgarian Contemporary Music Society (1933), which later became the Union of Bulgarian Composers. He marked the beginning of a number of genres in Bulgarian music. He also established the Bulgarian composition and pedagogical school, his students including the best Bulgarian composers of the next generation. The pianist Alexis Weissenberg was his student, too.
    Vladigerov was born in Zurich, Switzerland, but lived in Shumen. He played the piano and composed since early age. He was 10 when he started studying composition with Dobri Hristov in Sofia. After his father's death in 1912, he moved to Berlin with his mother and his twin brother (the violinist Luben Vladigerov), where he enrolled at the Staatliche Akademische Hochschule fьr Musik and studied music theory and composition with Professor Paul Juon and the piano with H. Barth. In 1920 he graduated from the Academie der Kьnste having studied composition
    with Professor Gernsheim and Professor Georg Schumann. He won twice the Mendelssohn Prize of the Academy (in 1918 and 1920). He worked for Max Reinhardt at the Deutsches Theater in Berlin as a composer and pianist (1920-32) before returning to Sofia where he was appointed reader and then Professor (from 1940) of Piano, Chamber Music and Composition at the State Academy of Music, which after his death was named after himself.
    He composed a lot in a variety of genres. He is author of an opera; ballet; symphony music; five piano concertos; two violin concertos; chamber music; 38 transcriptions of instrumental pieces for instrument and piano; 50 folksong concert arrangements for voice and piano/orchestra; 20 songs for voice and piano; 10 choral songs with piano/orchestral; music to the theatre performances of the Deutsches Theater in Berlin, the Theater in der Josefstadt in Vienna, the National Theatre in Sofia, etc.
    The world got acquainted with Pancho Vladigerov's work in the 1920s when his pieces were published by the Universal Edition Publishers in Vienna and were released on LP by the German recording company Deutsche Gramophon before being performed throughout Europe and the USA. As a pianist and composer he toured most of the European countries performing his own works. In 1969 he was awarded the Gottfried von Herder Prize. Now a national and international competition for pianists and violinists held in Shumen has his name. The Bulgarian recording company Balkanton released an edition of his stage and symphony music in four sets of seven LPs each. Several works of his such as the Bulgarian Rhapsody Vardar for instance are considered to be emblematic of the Bulgarian music.
    SONG is a part from the Shoumen miniatures, op.29 written in 1934.
