Notes & Reviews:

"On this 2005 CPO disc, Vladigerov's art is represented by three orchestral works from his 20s and early 30s: the muscular Bulgarian Rhapsody from 1928 named "Vardar" after Macedonia's greatest river, the dreamy Traumspiel Suite from 1921 and the infectious Seven Bulgarian Dances from 1931. To some, Vladigerov's music with its sweetness and sentimentality and its energy and exuberance may sound less like a cousin of Bela Bartok than like the brother of Eric Wolfgang Korngold. Brilliantly performed by the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin and persuasively conducted by Bulgarian Horia Andreescu, Vladigerov's music may appeal more to listeners looking for another Steiner than for another Janacek, but it is still well worth hearing. Recorded in the venerable Jesus-Christus Kirche in Berlin, CPO's sound here is as deep and as detailed as the finest ever made there by DG back in the 60s." -All Music

Gramophone Magazine
Vladigerov embraced many styles within a late romantic-nationalist idiom... Finest of all, though, are the Seven Bulgarian Symphonic Dances (1931), collectively a rich panoply of his homeland's folk heritage that gets better and better with each hearing. Superb performances from Berlin - where the composer lived and worked for almost 20 years - under (Romanian) Andreescu's sympathetic direction. Lovers of Bax or early Havergal Brian should not hesitate.
