Emil Tabakov (b. 1947) was the Bulgarian Minister for Arts in the government that took over from the Communists in 1997. He was obviously chosen for his intense artistic abilities and his services to Bulgarian music. He is a composer in his own right and, on the evidence of this set, very fine Mahler conductor. The tempo relationships in the movements are often really pleasing and he mangages to get a good mix of funeral march and angry outburst in Part One of Symphony 5. Symphony 6 is energetic and sensitive in turn (Scherzo placed second) and Symphony 7 is very well handled indeed: listen for the furious speed of the opening of the last movement, which then relaxes into lovely Viennese trio sections when needed and ends in a blaze of optimism. Symphony 9 is intense and moving. Symphony 8 - the most difficult to record - is a litle less weighty than other performances available, but those performances are at much higher price. And there is something about Tabakov's interpretations that make you want to go on listening once you have put the disc on.

The Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra produces clear and often exciting sounds and obviously has many very talented musicians All the recordings seem to come from the Bulgaria Hall, which is a very pleasant-sounding venue, though one can tell that there is no audience by the slightly "hollow" feel to the reverberation.
