Description

The seven original compositions on 'The Rag Waltz Time' carry the unmistakeable touch of the Waldigeroff Brothers, consciously and fancifully flirting with swing, jazz, Balkan sounds and modern grooves - a feel-good event. Musicians in the third generation the Wladigeroff Brothers Alexander and Konstantin were born in Sofia in 1978 and demonstrated prodigious talent at an early age. They are identical twins just like their renowned grandfather Pancho Wladigeroff (1899 - 1992), a composer , and his twin brother Lyuben Wladigeroff (1899 - 1902), a violinist. Pancho was the first to combine Bulgarian folk music with Western art music tradition and is rightly considered to be Bulgaria's most important composer. Such an enormous cultural and spiritual heritage could be a heavy burden but the Wladigroff Brothers handle it with ease. Alexander (trumpet, flugelhorn and composition) and Konstantin (piano, clarinet and composition) studied briefly at the Pancho Wladigeroff Music Academy in Sofia, before setting their sails in the direction of Vienna to perfect their art through study and practice. Very quickly the twin brothers became highly sought after session and theater musicians, with an excellent reputation in Austria and abroad.
