The Masonic movement is considered to have originated in the beginning of the 18th century. For this reason, the present release covers three centuries. The composers included are not only among the greatest musicians, but they are also renowned members of Masonic lodges. For example, Haydn and Mozart were members of "Zur wahren Eintracht" (True Harmony), and List was a member of "Zur Einigkeit" (Unity).The performers Ventseslav Nikolov and Ruzhka Tcharaktchieva are among the most distinguished Bulgarian musicians and laureates of prestigious international competitions. Currently they are respected members of the adjudicators’ committees of these competitions. Still giving concerts and making recordings of works from different epochs, they pass their experience to their students at the Prof. Pancho Vladigerov Academy of Music.The programme with music by Masonic composers is a clear example of their excellent performing skill and interpretation of styles!
