Schott Music Signs Dobrinka Tabakova
Aug. 08, 2022
Schott Music London is delighted to announce the signing of Dobrinka Tabakova to the Schott Music Group's renowned international roster of composers.
Dobrinka Tabakova is a composer of rich, expressive music, whose distinct soundworld has been called "riveting, piercingly beautiful and frequently radiant" (Huffpost Arts & Culture). Her impressive catalogue, spanning works for orchestra, ensemble, chamber and choral forces, has established her among the leading voices in classical music.
Her music is widely performed and has been championed by the likes of Janine Jansen, Maxim Rysanov, Gidon Kremer, Pekka Kuusisto, and Hugo Ticciati. She has held residencies with the BBC Concert Orchestra and MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra, and is regularly heard on the concert stage with orchestras such as Tonhalle-Orchester Zurich, Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi, Britten Sinfonia, Aurora Orchestra, Amsterdam Sinfonietta, Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and Australian Chamber Orchestra, among many others. She has received recent commissions from Manchester International Festival, the BBC, and the Barbican Centre. Her debut portrait disc "String Paths" was released on ECM in 2013 and received a GRAMMY® nomination in 2014.
Choral music is an important part of Dobrinka Tabakova's output. Her long-term residency with Truro Cathedral Choir resulted in a number of new works and a second portrait disc, which received the 2019 Critic's Choice of Gramophone Magazine.
Tabakova will be Artist in Residence with The Hallé Orchestra in the 22/23 season. A series of orchestral and chamber works are programmed, beginning with her Concerto for Cello and Strings in their opening concert on September 21.
Schott Music is excited to begin a partnership with Dobrinka Tabakova, and we look forward to our fruitful collaboration in the years to come.
Notably, several of Dobrinka Tabakova's solo and chamber works, such as Nocturne for solo piano, may be ordered from Project Schott New York (PSNY) here.
