06 march 2023 Lubomir Denev-son § Stoimen Peev Оn Тhe Burgas Stage Again

After the great success of the Symphony Concert at the end of the past calendar year on the stage of the Burgas Opera, under the baton of Lyubomir Denev-son, soloist - the violinist Stoimen Peev, the two young talents are visiting the seaside city again. On November 17, last year, "Nuances" and "Happy Birthday" by Prof. Alexander Tekeliev, "Meditation" for violin and orchestra from the opera "Tais" by Jules Massenet, "Gypsy" by Maurice Ravel, "Introduction and Rondo" were performed Capriccioso' by Camille Saint-Saëns and Suite 'Carmen' by Georges Bizet. Lubomir Denev-sin showed stability, class and intelligent stage presence behind the conductor's desk. The soloist - violinist Stoimen Peev, was also impressive - both in the depth of interpretation and technical mastery, allowing him to perform some of the iconic works from the violin repertoire with finesse, lightness, precision, and at the same time - with depth and artistry, the complex passages. The violinist was convincing both in the gentle nuances of the slow tempos, in the challenges of the double fingerboard, and in the catchy pizzicatos, and in the sultry sensual legato. Admirations were also earned by the musicians from the orchestra of the Burgas Opera, who were in sync - both with their conducting and interpreting skills, as well as with the messages of the works.

On March 9, Thursday, from 7 p.m. in the hall of the State Opera - Burgas, a new exciting musical event is coming with a precisely selected program that will appeal to both connoisseurs and the general public. On Thursday, "Divertimento" by Pancho Vladigerov, considered a classic of Bulgarian and world music culture, will be performed. The work is built on a suite principle with contrasting pieces. Four of them are from the composer's theater music, and the fifth is an arrangement of his piano piece. The second piece on the program is Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D Major, Opus 35 by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Tchaikovsky's concerto for violin and orchestra is still one of the audience's favorites. It is also a required work for performance at the International Competition bearing the composer's name, and the best violinists in the world consider it an honor to perform the remarkable work. The concert on March 9 will end with Polovtsian Dances based on the opera "Prince Igor" by Aleksandr Borodin. Polovtsian Dances were created in the summer of 1875 while Borodin was resting in Moscow. However, the entire opera "Prince Igor" was never completed in its entirety. Only after Borodin's death, according to his remaining sketches, was it added by Alexander Glazunov, and Rimsky-Korsakov orchestrated most of the piano part. The premiere of "Prince Igor" took place on October 23, 1890, in the St. Petersburg "Mariinsky Theater" and literally stunned the audience.

Vanya Zlateva, who last year was awarded the most prestigious prize of the Union of Bulgarian Music and Dance Artists - "Crystal Necklace", will be the concertmaster of the orchestra of the Burgas Opera at the Symphony Concert on Thursday. The choir of the State Opera - Burgas, conducted by Nevena Mihailova, also takes part in the concert program.
