“Macedonian folk dances” (“Makedonski ora” Macedonian: Македонски ора"

Tale Ognenovski is author of the book “Macedonian folk dances” (“Makedonski ora” Macedonian: Македонски ора") published by the Cultural Educational Association, Skopje, in 1989. The person responsible for its publication was Mirko Stefanovski, the secretary of the Cultural Educational Association from Skopje. The editor was Jelica Todorchevska, and it was reviewed by Dr. Trpko Bicevski, Dimche Nikolevski and Dushko Dimitrovski. Financial support for its publication was provided by the Republic’s Cultural Society, the Republic’s Scientific Society, the Autonomous Interest Society of Skopje and ‘Makedonija Tabak’. In the introduction to this book Kiril Todevski, ethnomusicologist and editor of the Folk Music Department in “Macedonian Radio Television” wrote, “Besides his affirming Macedonian folk dances with magnetic tapes and gramophone records, Tale Ognenovski has written this book of Macedonian folk dances, the first such book in Macedonia. He has for a long time been associated with the traditional expression of the Folk style and an endless desire to develop the smallest element of folk music into a complex instrumental content...”

 For Our Music” (“Za Nasha Muzika” – Macedonian: “За Наша Музика)

 “…The prodigy, however, is called Tale Ognenovski… As a virtuoso playing ‘Chalgija’ music (in his child-hood, as a shepherd, he played the reed pipe (‘kavalche’); later, as an educated musician he played Cavallini, Weber and Mozart.  Tale Ognenovski, at the same time, navigates himself effectively all around the world of classical music… we will discover with surprise and great delight that Ognenovski is (probably) the FIRST, and (surely) THE FARTHEST REACHING contemporary who first made the connection between the two “UNCONNECTABLE” worlds – the Orient and the West - with words and melodies. Tale Ognenovski does not find it problematic to start with a motif, a theme, and then to navigate through all the labyrinths of the archaic and old church styles, so that at in a certain section of his improvisation… to decide on a strict, “very Western-style” tonality and to bring all that to the starting-point by perfectly structuring and observing the style. The impossible becomes possible: two, “usually non-complimentary” parallel-existing worlds of sounds - Europe - The Orient – are in Tale Ognenovski’s music naturally brought closer together, understand each other and merge. Has Ognenovski’s ingenuity in advance not done something that with the power of empirical palpability and outright proof, will convince us that Macedonia - with the power of both worlds of melodies being borne and present in her galaxy of sounds - is the one predetermined to play the role of a tonal catalyst for the future universal connection and natural mixing and circulation of the creative idea of East - West - East?...”, wrote Dushko Dimitrovski in his book “For Our Music” (“Za Nasha Muzika” – Macedonian: “За Наша Музика) ISBN 9989-600-01-5, published by BID “Misirkov”, 1994),

The composer of many tunes that have become standards, he is today the leader of his own group, and a master of the more Westernised style that become prominent in the 1940s and 50s.

During his tours around the world, Tale Ognenovski, clarinetist and composer performed in a multitude of concerts:  In the United States (65 concerts, from January 22, 1956 till April 12, 1956; concert in Carnegie Hall, New York City on January 27, 1956), Canada (Toronto Massey Hall, February 13, 1956), Germany (74 concerts, from August 15, 1956 till October 27, 1956 and September 17 and 18, 1959 in Dortmund), France (83 concerts, from September 20 till November 25, 1959), Switzerland (Berne, July 7 and 8, Geneva, July 9 and 10, 1959)…

Тale Ognenovski played as virtuoso and clarinet and reed pipe (‘kavalche’) soloist with Macedonian National Ensemble for Folk Dances and Songs "Tanec" in Carnegie Hall, New York , on January 27, 1956 for most parts of the programme, including the Macedonian folk dances ‘Bride’s Dance’ (‘Nevestinsko Oro’), ‘Chupurlika’, ‘Shopska Podripnuvachka’ ('Sopska Poskocica'), ‘Kopachka’, ‘Shepherd’s Dance (‘Ovcharsko Oro’), ‘Soborski Igri’, Macedonian songs, Serbian folk dances and songs and ‘Shote’, an Albanian folk dance. Tale Ognenovski was a virtuoso clarinet soloist in ‘Sopska Poskocica’ (‘Shopska Podripnuvachka’) but he also helped arrange the music for he added his own improvisations to some parts of the dance. This has also been the case with others folk dances where Tale Ognenovski has performed as virtuoso clarinet and reed pipe soloist. Following every concert of ‘Tanec’s’ North American tour, critics in almost every newspaper commented about the Macedonian folk dance ‘Sopska Poskocica’: “… To make the point, in “Sopska Poskocica”, five young men took over the stage and indulged in show-off tactics to attract the girl... An audience which jammed Carnegie to capacity (the house had been sold out by last Monday) cheered and applauded the folk dancing with as much enthusiasm as if it had been witnessing classical, theatrical ballet at its most glittering.” – Article: ‘Yugoslav Folk Ballet,’ written by Walter Terry, the New York Herald Tribune, January 28, 1956. ; “... Until half-past eight, Carnegie Hall was full to capacity, without any of it’s near enough 3000 seats available... To choose which were the most successful of the program's seventeen folk dances, when all were greeted with stormy applause, is really very difficult and risky… “Shopska podripnuvachka” (“Sopska Poskocica”) was even repeated, and to repeat a performance on the American stage is a really rare and exclusive event…” – Article: “The First Days in America (Macedonian: ‘Првите денови во Америка’), written by Stjepan Pucak, former Tanjug correspondent and Croatian journalist , Nova Makedonija (‘Нова Македонија’), Skopje Republic of Macedonia, February 7, 1956.; “...IF IT EVER COMES to an all out global brawl, I want the Yugoslavs on my side. That is, if the Yugoslav National Folk Ballet, which spent the week-end in the Civic Opera house, is a fair sample.. called Tanec, which is the Macedonian word for dance, this group of 37 dancers, singers and musicians is a kaleidoscope of the Balkans... When five of them dance the “Sopska Poskocica,” which apparently just means they are showing off to the girls. I would keep them any day as a fair trade for the four little swans in “Swan Lake.”...” – Article: “On the Aisle - Yugoslav Ballet a Colorful Addition to International Dance.”, written by Claudia Cassidy, Chicago Daily Tribune, Chicago, February 6, 1956. ; “... A Sopska Poskocica  is devised to show the girls how handsome, wonderful, brilliant, exciting and sensational their man friends are. It does. The rate at which it is danced, and the tremendous energy and precision of six men who dance it, is unique and demanded a repetition...If you see “Tanec” which simply means “Dance” advertised again, you won’t want to miss it.” – Article: “Yugoslav Dancers Shoot the Works”, written by Paul Hume, The Washington Post and Times Herald, February 10, 1956.; “… The first impression, however, must be one of rhythmic precision... Nor was the performance without spectacle... Sopska Poskocica  it was no more than a show-off dance. As such it was highly effective…” – Article: “Music in Toronto”, written by John Kraglund, The Globe and Mail, February 14, 1956.; “… But I know they started many a knee jogging to complicated Macedonian rhythms … The Yugoslav troupe provided a magnificent demonstration of that Balkan urge for expressing one’s self in subtly rhythmic and violently evocative body movements… and never more so than in a number titled simply “Macedonian Tune,” which in its intricate rhythms and plaintive melody should at least make Dave Brubeck send out an emergency call for Darius Milhaud...” – Article: “Yugoslav Ballet Proves Folk Dancing ‘Tricky’ “, written by R. H. Hagan, the San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco, March 8, 1956. ; “… For authentic folk dancing, wild and free and yet subject to its own intricate disciplines, this group would be hard to beat…  the “Sopska Poskocica” in which the young men display their athletic prowess for the girls...It all makes quite a spectacle and is well worth seeing.” – Article:  “Yugoslav Folk Ballet Opens Engagement”, written by Albert Goldberg, the Los Angeles Times, March 13, 1956.; “A hundred years ago on the rugged roads of Macedonia, bands of brigands used to plunder the caravans of rich merchants and, like Robin Hood, pass on some of their spoils to the poor ... this spring, the Yugoslav National Folk Ballet is making a first, and highly successful tour of the U.S. … Together they make as vigorous a display of dancing as the U.S. has ever seen…” – Article: “Dance Bouncing Brigands from Yugoslav come to U.S., Life magazine, USA, Vol. 40, No. 15, pp. 173-174, April 9, 1956. 
On January 27, 1956, Tale Ognenovski performed at Carnegie Hall, New York City as clarinet and reed pipe (kavalche - recorder) soloist of Macedonian National Ensemble for Folk Dances and Songs "Tanec".

Tale Ognenovski is the number one clarinetist. 
Musical genius Tale Ognenovski performed in the world-famous Carnegie Hall as clarinet and reed pipe virtuoso soloist. His phenomenal success in Macedonian National Ensemble for Folk Dances and Songs ‘Tanec’s’ 66-concert tour of the United States and Canada in 1956 launched a new era in his highly successful, 75-year career. The zenith of his career was his historic performance with Ensemble ‘Tanec’ at the concert in Carnegie Hall on January 27, 1956.  This concert by Tale Ognenovski and the Ensemble is one of the most celebrated events in the history of Carnegie Hall, and it marked the acceptance by the American public of Macedonian, Serbian, Croatian and Albanian Folk Dances and Songs. Ecstatic applause followed Ensemble ‘Tanec’s successes throughout North America. At the end of concerts, the audiences surrounded the members of Ensemble “Tanec”, congratulated them for their display of tremendous skill, and asked for their autographs.  Many of them told Tale Ognenovski that he was the number one clarinetist.
Macedonia is the Centre of the Folk Universe.

‘Tanec’s triumphant appearance on American television, in the Ford Foundation ‘Omnibus’ programme on January 22, 1956 in New York City opened America’s doors to a wealth of Macedonian musical talent. What followed would be called a Musical Sensation. ‘Tanec’s performances at Carnegie Hall and at other famous concert halls were displays of tremendous skill, the likes of which North America had never seen before. Tale Ognenovski and other members of the Ensemble arrived as foreign ambassadors, but they received the warmest welcome and the most enthusiastic reception possible in North America.  In their commentaries, the North American press gave such magnificent descriptions of the Ensemble’s performances that it could be concluded that Macedonia was the ‘centre of the folk universe’. During an 84-day journey throughout the United States and Canada Ensemble ‘Tanec’ travelled ten thousand kilometres and performed 66 concerts in 53 different towns.  They were described as a Great Cultural Event by the American press, with articles appearing in The New York Times, The New York Daily Mirror, The New York Herald Tribune, The New York World Telegram, The New York Daily News, Boston Traveler, Boston Globe, Chicago Daily News, Chicago Daily Tribune, Saint Louis Globe Democrat, San Francisco Chronicle, Los Angeles Times, San Diego Union, The Milwaukee Journal, Washington News, Baltimore Sun,  The Christian Science Monitor, Denver Rocky Mountain News, Life, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Globe and Mail, Dance Observer,  The Washington Post and the Times Herald. This tour is one of the longest and the most triumphant of tours in the history of world music.  Ensemble ‘Tanec’ twice repeated this giant success, first with their 72-concert tour of Germany from August 15 until October 27, 1956, and secondly with their 83-concert tour of France from September 20 until November 25, 1959.  They played two concerts in Dortmund, Germany on September 18 and 19, 1959.

TOUR OF NORTH AMERICA
"Venerable Carnegie Hall fairly vibrated as the audience blistered its palms in appreciation..." - By Robert Coleman,  New York Daily Mirror, January 28, 1956

"Last night this Yugoslav National Folk Ballet preluded a transcontinental tour at Carnegie Hall. This is the freshest, gayest, most expert dance affair that has come over the horizon in years… We have been afforded many novelties from the Orient and the Occident but none of them won a more enthusiastic reception than the Yugoslav National Folk Ballet..." - By William Hawkins, New York World Telegram, January 28, 1956  

Yugoslav Folk Ballet      New York Herald Tribune
"And these antique measures, accompanied sometimes by a shepherd's pipe … Tanec, a Macedonian group of some forty dancers and musicians, gave generously of their rich folk heritage... An audience which jammed Carnegie to capacity (the house had been sold out by last Monday) cheered and applauded the folk dancing with as much enthusiasm as if it had been witnessing classical, theatrical ballet at its most glittering." ..." - By Walter Terry, New York Herald Tribune., January 28, 1956

Macedonian National Ensemble for Folk Dances and Songs "Tanec"  was the first dance company from Yugoslavia (the former Yugoslavia) to perform in America. Ensemble ‘Tanec’s North American tour (January 22, 1956 – April 12, 1956) was sponsored by International Artists in association with Charles E. Green and Lee V. Eastman. ‘Tanec’s sixty-six performances in North America attracted much attention in the North American press.

REVIEWS OF Yugoslav National Folk Ballet Carnegie Hall January 27, 1956      Dance Observer
"The capacity audience at Carnegie Hall on January 27 for the single New York performance of Tanec, the Yugoslav National Folk Ballet, enjoyed a fascinating cross-section of over 2000 years of human history and culture. Tanec is a Macedonian group,..." - Dance observer: Volumes 23-24, April, 1956. 

On the Aisle - Yugoslav Ballet a Colorful Addition to International Dance      Chicago Daily Tribune
"IF IT EVER COMES to an all out global brawl, I want the Yugoslavs on my side. That is, if the Yugoslav National Folk Ballet, which spent the week-end in the Civic Opera house, is a fair sample... Called Tanec, which is the Macedonian word for dance, this group of 37 dancers, singers and musicians is a kaleidoscope of the Balkans... When five of them dance the "Sopska Poskocica", which apparently just means they are showing off to the girls. I would keep them any day as a unfair trade for the four little swans in "Swan Lake"..." -

""Tanec" means "dance", but "dance" in a larger form than customary.

 "A Sopska Poskocica is devised to show the girls how handsome and wonderful and brilliant and exciting and sensational their man friends are. The rate at which it is danced, and the tremendous energy and precision of six men who dance it, is unique and demanded a repetition ...

Concert in Massey Hall,
Toronto, Canada, on February 13, 1956

Before the start of Ensemble ‘Tanec’s’ concert in Massey Hall, Toronto, Canada an February 13, 1956, the Artistic Director of the Hall told professor Asparuh Hadzi Nikolov, the Artistic Director of the Ensemble, that it was a tradition that every performer at Massey Hall played the Canadian National Anthem at the beginning of every concert.  Professor Hadzi Nikolov replied that it would not be possible for the Ensemble to play the Canadian National Anthem right then, but that if they had been given a score for the Anthem the previous day, then it would have been played

Tale Ognenovski overheard this conversation and announced that the National Anthem would be played immediately from the score. He was given the score and, as he had a ‘B’ clarinet he began to play one tone with transposition above, with other members of the Ensemble, Ivan Terziev (flute), Nikola Galevski (violin), Aleksandar Sarievski (accordion), Todor Pavlovski Totka (guitar) and Reshad Muharedov (drum) accompanying him without transposition, which is an easier way to play. It was a highly successful rendition of the National Anthem and the concert was as spectacular as the other concerts in United States. Only the greatest instrumentalists in the world could play a composition like the Canadian National Anthem without any preparation in advance and with transposition one tone above.

Music in Toronto      The Globe and Mail
"The first impression, however, must be one of rhythmic precision... Nor was the performance without spectacle... in the case of one dance, Sopska Poskocica it was no more than a show-off dance. As such it was highly effective ... " - By John Kraglund, The Globe and Mail (Toronto, Canada), , February 14, 1956.

MOZART AND OGNENOVSKI is the best clarinet concertos in the world
“After listening to the CD: "MOZART and OGNENOVSKI Clarinet Concertos" 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 Clarinet Concertos" 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:  shihandc@yahoo.com

In his book, For Our Music (За Наша Музика) Dushko Dimitrovski writes: The prodigy, however, is called Tale Ognenovski… Both Jesus Christ’s: “I came not to do away with the Bible, but to fulfil and continue it”, and Michalangelo’s: “The Artist must adopt strict, artistic rules at first, to be able to break them afterwards”… could well apply to Ognenovski. Absolutely masterly and limitless imagination and music inventiveness are only ‘potka’, a condition, a starter, tonal ‘organon’, for his creative accomplishments.... As a virtuoso playing ‘Chalgija’ music (in his child-hood, as a shepherd, he played the reed pipe (‘kavalche’); later, as an educated musician he played Cavallini, Weber and Mozart. Tale Ognenovski, at the same time, navigates himself effectively all around the world of classical music. As if the ingenious knowledge of the ‘chalgija’ universe, but also with the live primordial in the rustic sound, together with the vivid, creative touch of the mysteries of European classical music idea, had predetermined the outstanding talent of Ognenovski to make one, perhaps unconscious, but in musical and historical terms, more than far-reaching creative step forward. In other words if without telling in advance, we approach carefully and analytically the ‘chalgija’ opus created by the Maestro, we will discover with surprise and great delight that Ognenovski is (probably) the FIRST, and (surely) THE FARTHEST REACHING contemporary who first made the connection between the two “UNCONNECTABLE” worlds – the Orient and the West - with words and melodies. Tale Ognenovski does not find it problematic to start with a motif, a theme, and then to navigate through all the labyrinths of the archaic and old church styles, so that at in a certain section of his improvisation… to decide on a strict, “very Western-style” tonality and to bring all that to the starting-point by perfectly structuring and observing the style. The impossible becomes possible: two, “usually non-complimentary” parallel-existing worlds of sounds - Europe - The Orient – are in Tale Ognenovski’s music naturally brought closer together, understand each other and merge. Has Ognenovski’s ingenuity in advance not done something that with the power of empirical palpability and outright proof, will convince us that Macedonia - with the power of both worlds of melodies being borne and present in her galaxy of sounds - is the one predetermined to play the role of a tonal catalyst for the future universal connection and natural mixing and circulation of the creative idea of East - West - East?...”, Dimitrovski, Dushko.

Ognenovski's performance is the most beautiful and the fastest performance of Mozart's clarinet concerto of all time. In this sensational recording the clarinet is accompanied by second clarinet (performed and arranged by Tale Ognenovski).

Perhaps this is unique recording where every notes of measure numbers III/311-313 from the Third movement: Rondo: Allegro are played by Tale Ognenovski exactly as they are written in Breitkopf & Härtel edition. (Time: 09:29 – 09:34 in this recording). The full, wonderful sound of the modern A clarinet is rich and Ognenovski's playing is superb, with good tempo and intonation throughout.
Tale Ognenovski composed and performed concert entitled: "Tale Ognenovski Concert for Clarinet No. 1". Tale Ognenovski Concert for Clarinet No. 1 is the most beautiful and the most difficult Clarinet Concerto of all time.
Like his other clarinet works, the end result of Tale Ognenovski’s Clarinet Concerto No.1 is an expression of his own amazing virtuosity. Every register of the clarinet finds eloquent expression in this concert. 
With this classical concert this creative musical genius continues to extend the river of great beauty that is classical music. He possesses complete perfection and wisdom.Tale Ognenovski’s Clarinet classical composition is far more than a demonstration of the clarinet’s tonal qualities, as well as what is technically possible with a clarinet - these he had already explored and favoured in his compositions of Macedonian folk dances. It is also a display of imaginative power, a colourful, almost romantic emotion, and sensitive feeling.

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 their 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 on mysterious and exotic characteristics and overtones. His virtuosity possesses special qualities related to the Balkan clarinet that would make even Mozart blush with pleasure. Strict classical music is not my overall favorite because the patterns of sound are too prescribed, quite similar sounding as played by most musicians. Not so with Ognenovski whose elegant virtuosity sets him apart, the distinct Balkan flavor and improvisations are extraordinairy and appealing to those who love a more free form fluid style. Music played on the Macedonian clarinet has a long and distinguished history and when it marries classical 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
“After hearing this great artist, I was absolutely dumbfounded. Why, oh, why have I 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 other clarinetist can touch him. After having bought the cd, you will not be able to listen to anything else!!… And bravo Mr. Ognenovski, for inspiring the world of clarinetists… it is imperitive that every clarinetist buy and listen to this recording. Phenominal....
Your minion,

Michele Zukovsky
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,

“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.
These are the most brilliant Reviews published at Amazon.com about the performance of Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in A, K.622 for any artist who performed this concert.

MOZART AND OGNENOVSKI is the best clarinet concertos in the world
“After listening to the CD: "MOZART and OGNENOVSKI Clarinet Concertos" 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 Clarinet Concertos" 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:  shihandc@yahoo.com

World-class Jazz Compositions & Traditional Macedonian Folk, April 24, 2004 “If the traditional music of the Balkans appeals to you and you like improvisational jazz ... this CD will blow you away. Music of the Balkans and Central Europe has been hidden too long ... The region has been a fertile soil for exciting, astonishing, experimental music which in modern times combines with traditional music that is creative, original and altogether very satisfying. Tale Ognenovski has over 45 years of experience creating music on the clarinet, the main instrument on which he demonstrates technical expertise and artistry. His musical innovations and improvisations shine on this magnificent CD proving great music has no borders or politics. The traditional Macedonian folk tunes and melodies, "Brusnichko Oro", "Nevenino Oro, "Bukovsko svadbarski oro", and "Talevo kasapsko oro" are my favorites because the minor scale and unusual rhythms allow for highly fluid and lyrical melodic interpretation. Tale Ognenovski is a master of interpretative clarinet sounds and inventor of exotic musical phrases. Great examples are, Tracks 1, 2 and 3 "Tale Ognenonvski Jazz Compositions No. 1, No. 5, & No. 8", all of which combine Macedonian music with Benny Goodman type jazz improvisational techniques. The labyrinthine musical phrases that flow from the the undisputed "King of Macedonian Clarinet" are magnificent, extravagant. He explores sound and music with twists and curves that leave the listener breathless. It is world-class music at its finest. He can play fast, exciting, speeding clarinet music or music that is spiritual meditative and soulful. Overall, this CD demonstrates that the mysterious music from the Balkans belongs on the world-stage ... for everyone to hear and enjoy.”, By Erika Borsos, Gulf Coast of FL, USA.

Reviewer Neil Horner of the MusicWeb International comments, "He is undoubtedly an exceptional artist and the predominant image created in my mind is of Benny Goodman playing the superb Contrasts he commissioned Bartók to write for him, but with a folk rather than a classical emphasis… Also, despite the CD promising jazz, folk and classical, it really all comes under the umbrella of his conception of how the elements interlink, with some but not major differences of emphasis…This disc is likely to appeal to world music aficionados who enjoy the Balkan/Levantine soundworld and perhaps also those who care to hear the source musics of their classical favourites, the aforementioned Bartók but also, here, perhaps people like Skalkottas." November 3, 2003.

Original, Artistic, Creative, Enjoyable,
 October 9, 2008
“I am a fan of the clarinet and was absolutely blown away by the beautiful music on this CD. I have all the CDs produced by this fabulous clarinet player from Macedonia who is often called a "genius" which in my opinion is no exaggeration and this one is my favorite. Jazz music has a freedom of expression like few other musical styles. Tale Ognenovski uses the most intricate Western playing techniques and combines them with exotic Balkan stylizations creating a pure and genuine new dimensional sound. The listener's spirit soars, dances and flies with pleasure and anticipation gliding on every note and musical phrase. Besides the astonishing clarinet playing, Tale Ogenenovski is also a master player of the reed pipe, small bagpipe, zourla and drums which add more flavor and spice to the original, creative, and artistic clarinet music on this CD. His son Stevan Ogenenovski accompanies the master clarinet player on the reed pipes and drum. While his grandsons Kliment and Nikola add their accompaniment on the reed pipes. Overall, this is a an outstanding CD that is rich with Balkan flavor and has great depth. It is filled with sensational and spectacular music.
Tale Ognenovski Jazz Composition # 1: starts out with Benny Goodman style playing with cheerful musical phrasing. The tones gradually transition into an exciting exhilarating array of Balkan music which melts into Western stylizations. The sounds are delightful as the clarinet explores new paths that are rich and very satisfying. The creativity is extravagant and the music is beautiful. This piece showcase the originality and amazing artistry of the musician.
Tale Ognenovski Jazz Composition # 2: begins with a Middle Eastern/Balkan flavor that expands in scope and range incorporating Western style jazz mofifs despite its Balkan foundation. The results are astonishingly fresh, genuinely harmonious, and totally satisfying.
Tale Ognenovski Jazz Composition # 3: has a very lyrical and flowing melody with catchy musical phrases and tremendous innovations. It shows that Tale Ognenovski is a genuinely talented and original artist of the highest order.
Tale Ognenovski Jazz Composition # 4: is played with high energy, the drums create a clip clop style like the hooves of horses, and the clarinet shouts with joy and happiness. The free style clarinet improvisation expresses emotions with intensity and honesty. The entire piece is a joyful celebration of life, where the soul is set free.
Tale Ognenovski Jazz Composition # 5: starts with a twittering clarinet that calls the listener to engage in a personal journey of discovery. There are interesting interludes where reed pipes carry out a merry melody, followed by a zourla solo and then again the clarinet awakens and reenergizes the entire composition with mesmerizing solos.
For over 50 years Tale Ognenovski has entertained audiences from around the world, with live performances in the United States, Canada, Europe and in his own home country, Macedonia. In January of 1956, he toured with the Ensemble "Tanec" of Macedonia for 84 days straight and even played in Carnegie Hall. This CD once again proves that this master clarinet player of Macedonia is a world class musician who will continue to impress clarinet music lovers everywhere.”, By Erika Borsos, Gulf Coast of FL, USA.

On the back cover of this record Gjoko Georgiev, the well-known editor of music for Radio Television Skopje (now Macedonian Radio Television), wrote this article entitled “TALE IS UNIQUE” in Macedonian:“This record allows you to hear the unique, famous, music personality, the solo clarinetist Tale Ognenovski. When hearing the music, you will feel exhilarating folklore all around you, of the sunny, sad and bright legend of the south being transferred into music. These days Tale is a recognised poet and interpreter of Macedonian folk dances and songs.  He will live on in the Macedonian folk dances contained on this record.  During the last couple of decades he has continuously demonstrated his skill at original and superb interpretation, displaying the passion of one that is in love, and the style of a virtuoso.  But he has taken this further, by managing to combine both classical and folk music in the same performance, while keeping their particular styles separate. He demonstrated this while performing Ernesto Cavallini’s Concert “FIORI ROSSINIANI”, Weber’s Concert in ef-mol and Mozart’s Concert in A Major accompanied by Ladislav Palfi on the piano and broadcast on Radio Television Skopje.  He has performed many times in public and played jazz styles based on music by Yugoslav composers, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw... In this particular area of music, we learn that Tale Ognenovski first began to play the clarinet in Brusnik near Bitola; he then drifted through the Pelagonia plane, crossed over the Vardar and toured throughout Macedonia, thence throughout America, Canada and many European countries.  As he grew so he enlightened audiences and became wealthy, never again to possess the hands of a poor village boy from mountains of Pelister. This record is only a little small example of Tale’s work, but enough to make you aware of his strength and talent... ”

Magazine “Ilustrovana Politika
“…Radio Television Belgrade (now Radio Television of Serbia) issued a LP of Macedonian folk music, on which are performances by the extraordinary clarinetist Tale Ognenovski.  His music repertoire is folk dances, jazz (besides others he includes works by Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw), concerts from Weber, Mozart and Cavallini...This is Tale Ognenovski who began to play the clarinet in the village of Brusnik near Bitola, who with this wooden instrument toured the world and received well-deserved applause wherever he performed.  The names of the folk dances which Tale Ognenovski plays will not be given; this is unnecessary because this is a particularly good record that proves that this Macedonian clarinetist is an extraordinary musician”, from the magazine “Ilustrovana Politika”, under the title, “New records - Macedonian folk dances”, published in Belgrade, Serbia, Yugoslavia, 1979. 

In 2000 Tale Ognenovski formed a quartet with his son Stevan Ognenovski (a drummer) and grandsons Nikola Ognenovski (a reed piper) and Kliment Ognenovski (a reed piper).

Following every concert of ‘Tanec’s’ North American tour, critics in almost every newspaper commented about the Macedonian folk dance ‘Sopska Poskocica’: “… To make the point, in “Sopska Poskocica”, five young men took over the stage and indulged in show-off tactics to attract the girl... An audience which jammed Carnegie to capacity (the house had been sold out by last Monday) cheered and applauded the folk dancing with as much enthusiasm as if it had been witnessing classical, theatrical ballet at its most glittering.” – Article: ‘Yugoslav Folk Ballet,’ written by Walter Terry, the New York Herald Tribune, January 28, 1956. ; “... Until half-past eight, Carnegie Hall was full to capacity, without any of it’s near enough 3000 seats available... To choose which were the most successful of the program's seventeen folk dances, when all were greeted with stormy applause, is really very difficult and risky… “Shopska podripnuvachka” (“Sopska Poskocica”) was even repeated, and to repeat a performance on the American stage is a really rare and exclusive event…” – Article: “The First Days in America (‘Првите денови во Америка’), written by Stjepan Pucak, former Tanjug correspondent and Croatian journalist , Nova Makedonija (‘Нова Македонија’), Skopje Republic of Macedonia, February 7, 1956.; “...IF IT EVER COMES to an all out global brawl, I want the Yugoslavs on my side. That is, if the Yugoslav National Folk Ballet, which spent the week-end in the Civic Opera house, is a fair sample.. called Tanec, which is the Macedonian word for dance, this group of 37 dancers, singers and musicians is a kaleidoscope of the Balkans... When five of them dance the “Sopska Poskocica,” which apparently just means they are showing off to the girls. I would keep them any day as a fair trade for the four little swans in “Swan Lake.”...” – Article: “On the Aisle - Yugoslav Ballet a Colorful Addition to International Dance.”, written by Claudia Cassidy, Chicago Daily Tribune, Chicago, February 6, 1956. ; “... A Sopska Poskocica  is devised to show the girls how handsome, wonderful, brilliant, exciting and sensational their man friends are. It does. The rate at which it is danced, and the tremendous energy and precision of six men who dance it, is unique and demanded a repetition...If you see “Tanec” which simply means “Dance” advertised again, you won’t want to miss it.” – Article: “Yugoslav Dancers Shoot the Works”, written by Paul Hume, The Washington Post and Times Herald, February 10, 1956.; “… The first impression, however, must be one of rhythmic precision... Nor was the performance without spectacle... Sopska Poskocica  it was no more than a show-off dance. As such it was highly effective…” – Article: “Music in Toronto”, written by John Kraglund, The Globe and Mail, February 14, 1956.; “… But I know they started many a knee jogging to complicated Macedonian rhythms … The Yugoslav troupe provided a magnificent demonstration of that Balkan urge for expressing one’s self in subtly rhythmic and violently evocative body movements… and never more so than in a number titled simply “Macedonian Tune,” which in its intricate rhythms and plaintive melody should at least make Dave Brubeck send out an emergency call for Darius Milhaud...” – Article: “Yugoslav Ballet Proves Folk Dancing ‘Tricky’ “, written by R. H. Hagan, the San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco, March 8, 1956. ; “… For authentic folk dancing, wild and free and yet subject to its own intricate disciplines, this group would be hard to beat…  the “Sopska Poskocica” in which the young men display their athletic prowess for the girls...It all makes quite a spectacle and is well worth seeing.” – Article:  “Yugoslav Folk Ballet Opens Engagement”, written by Albert Goldberg, the Los Angeles Times, March 13, 1956.; “A hundred years ago on the rugged roads of Macedonia, bands of brigands used to plunder the caravans of rich merchants and, like Robin Hood, pass on some of their spoils to the poor ... this spring, the Yugoslav National Folk Ballet is making a first, and highly successful tour of the U.S. … Together they make as vigorous a display of dancing as the U.S. has ever seen…” – Article: “Dance Bouncing Brigands from Yugoslav come to U.S.,
