BREVIS CHAMBER ORCHESTRA

This is the first CD ever made in Bulgaria containing performances by a school ensemble. The recordings of Brevis Chamber Orchestra feature compositions exceptionally various in terms of difficulty, problems and character. Evidently the highly professional and experienced musical formation and their conductor Plamen Markov have worked selflessly and with much devotion and love to achieve such impressive interpretations of Vivaldi, Bach, Schumann. Mr. Markov has arranged with taste the programme, which also includes Bulgarian miniatures for chamber orchestra by Marin Goleminov, Peter Hristoskov, Krassimir Kyurkchiiski and the young Krassimir Kostov, graduate from the Pleven School of Music. Every chamber-music lover will find in the CD his or her preferred composers and compositions, performed flawlessly and with deep-felt emotion.

 

Recorded during a concert on June 23, 1998 at Varna Art Gallery, city of Varna
