Bakrnčev’s Traditional Folk Dances – The 1st Chamber Collection – are an excellent resource and fascinating example of traditional Macedonian folk dance brought into the modern era, which most musicians, audiences and programs will find accommodating. Each piece has been carefully selected and arranged from a large collection of folk dance material (mostly from Gjorgi Dimčevski’s Vie Se Oro Makedonsko) to suit each instrument of the orchestra with piano accompaniment. From melodically soothing 18/16 bassoon lines, vigorous 9/8 wedding dances for xylophone, Turkish Ottoman stylistic court music for Tuba through to a dazzling Roma dance for Viola. The collection includes 16 short dances which provide enough intrigue and variety to delight the young and old who are lovers of classical music, yet are always enthusiastic to hear something different and new.
