of Musical Genius Tale Ognenovski entitled: “MOZART and OGNENOVSKI
This recording is sensational. Tale Ognenovski arranged parts of the Mozart's clarinet concerto for two clarinets. The clarinet in standard performance is always accompanied by the Orchestra. In this recording the clarinet is accompanied by drum performed by his son Stevan Ognenovski or by drum and second clarinet (performed by Tale Ognenovski). Tale Ognenovski gives a splendid account of Mozart's most beautiful concerto. The full, wonderful sound of the modern A clarinet is rich and Ognenovski's playing is superb, with good tempo and intonation throughout. His sound is full and expressive, his phrasing is lyrical, his articulations clear, and his tone is beautiful. Tale Ognenovski's performance is the most beautiful and the fastest performance of Mozart's clarinet concerto of all time. Mozart's clarinet concerto is certainly one of the most beautiful works to emerge from the Classical era.
Musical genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on January 27, 1756. Two hundred years later, on January 27, 1956, another genius of music, Tale Ognenovski, performed as a virtuoso clarinet and reed pipe soloist folk dances in the world-famous Carnegie Hall. Together, he and the other members of the Macedonian Ensemble 'Tanec' appeared at Carnegie Hall in a display of tremendous skill, which was a sheer joy to watch.
Tale Ognenovski Concert for Clarinet No. 1 is the most beautiful and the most difficult Clarinet Concerto of all time. Variety of phrasing, spectacular clarinet solos are both interesting and fascinating for people to listen to and to admire. Tale Ognenovski has opened up new possibilities for the clarinet that no one could have predicted. He is the greatest clarinetist, reed piper, zourlist and small bagpiper of all time, demonstrating unique skill, a wealth of invention, amazing improvisational virtuosity and outstanding musical competence in all areas of music. He is one of the greatest composers in the world of music.
'Tanec's American tour began with their debut on one of the most successful cultural magazine series in the history of U.S. commercial television, the Ford Foundation TV Program "OMNIBUS" (on CBS Television Network), on January 22, 1956. This program was seen by millions of Americans. During an 84-day tour throughout the United States of America and Canada, Tale Ognenovski with Ensemble 'Tanec' traveled 10,000 kilometers and performed 66 concerts in 53 different towns. These concerts were heralded as great cultural events by the American press.
January 27, 2006, marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
2005 Produced by Tale Ognenovski and Stevan Ognenovski

Mozart Born Anew! Outstanding Musical Interpretation ..., April 13, 2006
“This reviewer is familiar with the three B's
of classical music: Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms and can distinguish
styles, one can *now* add a fourth "B" which stands for
"Balkan" as played by Tale Ognenovski ... Mr. Ognenovski plays Mozart
with his own inimitable personal style making the classical music take
mysterious and exotic characteristics and overtones. His virtuosity
special qualities related to the Balkan clarinet that would make even
blush with pleasure. Strict classical music is not my overall favorite
the patterns of sound are too prescribed, quite similar sounding as
most musicians. Not so with Ognenovski whose elegant virtuosity sets
the distinct Balkan flavor and improvisations are extraordinairy and
to those who love a more free form fluid style. Music played on the
clarinet has a long and distinguished history and when it marries
music: the outcome is superb.
Ognenovski explodes with passion as he performs his own "Tale Ognenovski Concerto for Clarinet No. 1" ... The labyrinthine musical pathways he creates are enormously pleasing to the listener. The pentatonic scale and odd metered rhythms of Macedonia awaken the listener to new vistas of musical excitement and enjoyment. Anyone who loves jazz improvisation and the sounds of the clarinet will immediately recognize the superior creativity, breath control and complete mastery of this instrument as played by Mr. Ognenovski. It is no surprise that his music has been played on the radio and Mr. Ognenovski has appeared on the television in Macedonia during various occasions for the past 50 years. The music of the Balkans has stayed hidden too long, it deserves wider playing and world wide recognition. Perhaps on his third CD, Mr. Ognenovski will explore the realm of traditional music of Macedonia and share it with the world. His superior talent and expressive lyrical style leaves many possibilities for the future ... we who love clarinet music can only hope for another CD by this grand master.”, By
Erika Borsos, Gulf Coast of FL, USA.
Exquisite, you must buy it, April 14, 2011
hearing this great artist, I was absolutely dumbfounded. Why, oh, why
not heard this songbird before. His delicate and nuanced Mozart was so
inspiring that I fell into a reverie--- it was a moment of bliss... No
clarinetist can touch him. After having bought the cd, you will not be
listen to anything else!!… And bravo Mr. Ognenovski, for inspiring the
clarinetists… it is imperitive that every clarinetist buy and listen to
1st clarinet Los Angeles Philharmonic”
A New Standard has Been Set, April 14, 2011
“Based on the recommendation of the wonderful clarinetist, Michele Z. I have to tell you that this is now my most favorite recording of the Mozart Concerto. I can only hope all clarinetists near and far will learn from this unique interpretation. Bravo Mr.Ognenovski, you've set a new standard.”, By Julia M. Heinen, Professor of Clarinet, California State University, Northridge, United States.
Amazing, April 14, 2011
“Words cannot express my joy. I first heard this last year. It brought a whole new level of awareness to Mozart for me. Highly recommended!”, By AZRobert1.
An amazing performance. Not to be missed. Pure Joy!, April 15, 2011
“I must concur with my esteemed colleagues M. Zukovsky and H. Heinen. After wrestling with this masterpiece throughout my professional career as a principal orchestral clarinetist, I feel this interpretation, with all its nuanced phrasing, carefully placed dynamic innuendo and unmatched intonation is like a revelation. I can truly say that I have never heard a Mozart like this one. I doubt I ever will again. Any reader of this review should simply listen to the samples on this site to understand the depth of my new reverence for Mr. Ognenovski. I'll never be able to play the Mozart like this... try though I may. There are indeed great artists in this world that have been overlooked. One asks oneself why. Perhaps we should ask the artists themselves. I would also, by the way, suggest this recording to some of my percussion colleagues as a reference for sensitive and delicate rhythmic structure. Truly a once in a lifetime recording. I will forever be indebted to this astonishing clarinetist.”, By H. Golden, Bavaria, Germany.
Unique Genius, April 16, 2011
“I must concur with my colleague, Michele Z., for her astute observations regarding Mr. Ognenovski's artistry. His subtle phrasing and amazing tone leave one breathless. Words cannot adequately describe the impression his recordings make. One must experience them to believe it. I can still hardly believe it myself.”, By David Gilman, orchestral & solo clarinetist, Lake Forest, CA, USA.

Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in A,
K.622 for any artist who performed this concert.
AND OGNENOVSKI is the best clarinet concertos in the world
“After listening to the CD (MOZART AND OGNENOVSKI) for few days, I have come to a conclusion that this is the best clarinet concertos in the world. Whether it's classical, jazz, Macedonian, Greek, Middle Eastern, Serbian, Bulgarian or others, no one can play the clarinet with such perfection, clean tone, variations, curves and improvisation ( without losing the original piece or composition ), like musical Genius Maestro Tale Ognenovski can. Many clarinetists only play one type or style of music Tale can play any style with perfection. "MOZART AND OGNENOVSKI' CD will go down in history as one of the best clarinet concertos ever recorded”, written by Jim (Dimce) Cvetkovski, Buffalo, New York, USA, March 26, 2006; E-mail: email@example.com
