Notes & Reviews:

This CD is the third of the Bulgarian Choral Arts series released on the initiative of the Bulgarian Choirs' Union on the occasion of its 80th anniversary. The program includes performances of choirs that are laureates of International Competitions. The studio and live performances have been selected with a view of showing outstanding achievements of some of the best Bulgarian choirs that have won prestigious awards in the period from the 1970's to the present day. Especially impressive are the highly accomplished children's choirs - many of whose members have grown up to achieve prominence in folk and classical music circles.



Reviews

Bulgarian choral art
Bulgarian choral art is known the world over. On their tours abroad, Bulgarian choirs are always met with the approval of the audience. The third CD of the series BULGARIAN CHORAL ART features performances of choirs which are laureates of international competitions. These are studio and live recordings made within a period of 30 years, thus presenting a review of choral art development in Bulgaria. The program includes mainly 20th-century songs, composed chiefly by Bulgarian authors. Many of the pieces were written specially for the choir which performs them. It is impossible to present in one release all choirs which have won awards at prestigious international competitions. This will continue in the next releases of the series, published with the assistance of the Bulgarian Choirs Union.
