Fedotova V.N. - Impressions by Pancho Vladigerov for the Piano pp. 14-20


Abstract: The genre palette of the heritage of Bulgarian composer Pancho Vladigerov is extraordinarily broad, and includes instrumental works, vocal miniatures, chamber opuses, large-scale symphonic oeuvres, as well as compositions for the musical theatre. Many directions which he pursued in his creative work were new to the Bulgarian culture. His music emerged in the 19201930s in Europe, and the composer himself was one of the popular authors of the Universal Edition (Vienna), which published almost all of his oeuvres written within this period. A special place in the composers heritage belongs to piano music separate pieces, and over thirty cycles created during the period from 1914 to 1978, among which is Impressions (1920, opus 9). In the course of the analysis of the cycle, the author was guided by the specificity of stylistic analysis, as well as other analytical methods of musicology. In the music of Impressions, we can note not only the symbolic, but also romantic and neoclassical features, which are associated with the peculiarities of accelerated development of the Bulgarian culture. Perhaps this has left an imprint upon the composers artistic individuality, in whose heritage we can find diversity of characters, emotions, as well as bright picturesqueness of the sound characters.
