The present fifth volume of the Pancho Vladigerov Edition turns to an aspect of the composer’s genre that many other composers have never or hardly touched: orchestral songs. It is perfectly plausible that Vladigerov found himself exposed to this genre during his formative years in Berlin and Vienna, having enjoyed its heydays in those years he spent in those cities (Gustav Mahler, Richard Strauss, Hans Pfitzner, Joseph Marx and others). Notably, Vladigerov always worked off poems by Bulgarian writers, not only when dealing with Bulgarian folk songs. Like many other 20th century composers from a host of different countries and ethnicities, Vladigerov delved deeply into the folk songs and folk dances of his homeland. These are songs and dances – some are still popular today, others nearly forgotten – that various ethnic groups in the country have developed over centuries. In these arrangements, the composing side of Vladigerov finds the perfect synthesis with his pronouncedly Bulgarian side.

This fifth volume of the Pancho Vladigerov Edition focuses on one genre in the composer’s output that many other composers have either never, or hardly ever, touched: orchestral songs. It is perfectly plausible that Vladigerov found himself exposed to it during his formative years in Berlin and Vienna, where the genre was at the peak of its popularity during the time he spent there (witness works by Gustav Mahler, Richard Strauss, Hans Pfitzner, Joseph Marx and others). Notably, Vladigerov always used poems by Bulgarian writers, complementing the interest he showed in Bulgarian folk songs. Like many other 20th-century composers from a host of different countries and ethnicities, Vladigerov delved deeply into the folk songs and folk dances of his homeland, developed over centuries by various ethnic groups; some remain popular today, while others have been largely forgotten. In these arrangements, Vladigerov the composer finds a perfect synthesis with Vladigerov the Bulgarian national.
