    Manuel de Falla – Final Dance – Jota from The Three-cornered Hat

    Arranged for Brass Quintet by Ivaylo Hristov.

    Since it is St. John's Night, a large number of people drop in across the bridge and fill the esplanade in a procession, carying a banner on which the effigy of the Corregidor is displayed. General dance, during which the old coxcomb is identified, and the miller and his wife are reconciled. The Corregidor, scoffed at by the crowd, has received so many cuffs that he lets himslef drop to the ground completely confounded. The people lay hold of him and joyously toss him on a blanket, like some rueful puppet. This is the final Jota from the ballet El sombrero de tres picos (1919), from Manuel de Falla.

    Brass Quintet

    Bιla Bartσk – Four Dialogues Sz. 82, 1926

    Arranged for Brass Quintet by Ivaylo Hristov.

    Moderato, Andante, Lento, Allegro vivace

    The Dialogues were published in 1927 as Volume I of the collection Nine Little Pieces for Piano, Sz. 82, BB 90. In strict counterpoint, they recall the J. S. Bach’s Inventions, but actually sound quite modern given the melodic, rhythmic, and harmonic variety of Bartok’s themes. Although only seven minutes long, this short suite of polyphonic miniatures captivates the listener with the freshness of the conversations among all musicians in the quintet.

    Edition Elm manager Ivaylo Hristov has compiled a wonderful collection of original brass works and transcriptions in his Edition Elm catalog. He has chosen many works that are not otherwise available, so he does the brass community a great service. His attention to Bulgarian music is especially gratifying, in that he is introducing some very interesting new works. His transcriptions are well-chosen and well-done, although sometimes quite challenging.

    Congratulations for an excellent effort.

    For half a century, the contemporary culture of Eastern Europe was closed to us in the West. Towering beacons shone through the gloom, but our knowledge was largely restricted to those masters who either transcended the Iron Curtain, or who left to teach and compose in the West. Since 1990, a whole new world has opened up, revealing the wealth of creativity which thrived beyond our hearing – each nation swallowed by the Soviet whale struggling to maintain its own cultural identity in every art form.

    Bulgaria is a small nation with an ancient and proud culture stretching back to the time of Alexander the Great. From 1945 Bulgarian musical life fostered a distinctive school of trombone playing, with a rich teaching tradition, producing a substantial body of superb recital and study material. Today the country is home to a community of talented and prolific composers – and Edition Elm has committed itself to both documenting the past, and encouraging the contemporary. Every piece in Elm’s collection has been chosen and edited by professionals, and is presented in performing materials of the highest quality and clarity, complete with biographies of all composers. These works are an invaluable addition to both personal and institutional libraries, and I have no hesitation in recommending them to performers and teachers internationally.

    I ardently acclaim the appearance of Edition Elm and the idea to publish the works of Pantcho Vladigueroff. This rectifies a serious deficiency in Bulgarian musical culture and represents a significant contribution to the consolidation of national conscience and self-confidence.

    Leading modern Bulgarian pianists are involved as editors and exponents in the preparation of this publication. These are people who were close friends with the composer and through their personal contacts with him had an opportunity to acquire knowledge and understanding straight from the horse’s mouth.

    The print is state-of-the-art technology and easy to read.

    I wish the publisher success with his noble mission.
