On this CD Musical Genius Tale Ognenovski is soloist on the clarinet, reed pipe ("kavalche"), small bagpipe ("gajdarka") and zourla ("zurla"). Accompanying him are members of his Orchestra: his son Stevan Ognenovski drum ("tapan") - all tracks and reed pipe - tracks 1, 8 and 9 and grandsons Nikola Ognenovski (reed pipe - tracks 1, 8 and 9) and Kliment Ognenovski (reed pipe - tracks 1, 8 and 9).   Tale Ognenovski’s compositions of Macedonian folk dances is a display of imaginative power, a colourful, almost romantic emotion, and sensitive feeling. Like his other clarinet works, the end result of “Tale Ognenovski 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. This US CD-album is confirmation that Tale Ognenovski 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. 
Reviewer Neil Horner of the MusicWeb International comments, "Tale Ognenovski 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." - CD Review entitled:  ”Tale OGNENOVSKI (b.1922) Musical genius: Jazz, Macedonian Folk Dances and Classical Music

Amazon.com Audio CD Customer Reviews:
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… “ - Reviewed in the United States on April 24, 2004 by Erika Borsos

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 clarinet and reed pipe (recorder - kavalche”)  soloist folk dances in the world-famous Carnegie Hall. Together, he and the other members of the Ensemble ‘Tanec’ appeared at Carnegie Hall in a display of tremendous skill, which was a sheer joy to watch.

 
Tale Ognenovski is the greatest clarinetist of all time and
one of the greatest composers of instrumental music in history. Tale Ognenovski brought folk dances from Republic of Macedonia, Serbia and Albania to Carnegie Hall on January 27, 1956. He performed as virtuoso clarinet and reed pipe (‘kavalche’) soloist with Macedonian National Ensemble for Folk Dances and Songs  "Tanec" in Carnegie Hall, New York City on January 27, 1956.  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)…  The musical genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on January 27, 1756. Two hundred years later, on January 27, 1956, another musical genius, Tale Ognenovski performed playing folk dances as a virtuoso soloist of clarinet and a reed pipe (“kavalche”) in the world famous Carnegie Hall.   

During an 84-day journey (January 22, 1956 - April 12, 1956) 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, 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. Tale Ognenovski and other members of the Ensemble Tanec 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’.

Life magazine commented: "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... the Yugoslav National Folk Ballet which this spring 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 entitled “DANCE, BOUNCING BRIGANDS, Yugoslavs come to U.S.”, published in the Life Magazine, April 9, 1956, Vol. 40, No. 15, pp. 173-174.

Music Album: "Jazz, Macedonian Folk Dances and Classical Music" (Record label: Independent Records, USA. Catalog: IR04542)
Reviewer Neil Horner of the MusicWeb International comments, "Tale Ognenovski 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." - CD Review entitled:  ”Tale OGNENOVSKI (b.1922) Musical genius: Jazz, Macedonian Folk Dances and Classical Music

Amazon.com Audio CD Customer Reviews:
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… “ - Reviewed in the United States on April 24, 2004 by Erika Borsos

(Macedonian "Тале Огненовски, кој твори повеќе од 60 години, и е добро познат на македонската и на светската јавност по својата виртуозност, во декември минатата година го издаде својот прв албум, насловен како "Џез, македонски ора и класична музика". Албумот е снимен во студиото "Промузика Тра-ла-ла" во Скопје, а го издава дискографската куќа "Индипендент рекордс" од САД…  Овој албум, на кој 80-годишниот Огненовски е солист на кларинет, кавалче, гајда и зурла, многу ќе придонесе за афирмација на македонскиот фолклор низ светот. Како придружба во дел од песните настапуваат членовите на неговиот оркестар: неговиот син Стеван Огненовски, на тапан, и внуците Никола и Климент, на кавалче. На албумот се наоѓаат 3 џез-композиции, 6 македонски народни ора - Брусничко, Невенино, Буково свадбарско, Талево касапско, Стевчево и Шарско оро - и една класична композиција - "Тале Огненовски, Концерт за кларинет бр.1". Автор на сите мелодии и ора е самиот Огненовски. Композициите изобилуваат со темпераментен ритам и силен звук и го претставуваат кларинетот како инструмент што има можност за силен солистички опсег. Тале Огненовски спаѓа во редот на најголемите инструменталисти и композитори во светот. Тој ги поврзал ориенталната и западната музика и компонирал повеќе од 150 македонски народни ора. Некои од неговите композиции се снимени на 11 лонг-плеј плочи и касети. Настапувал во Швајцарија, Франција, Шведска, Финска, Англија, Данска и во многу други земји. Секаде каде што свирел оставал силен впечаток со својата виртуозност, брзина во свирењето и неверојатните аранжмани. Со „Македонскиот национален ансамбл за народни игри и песни "Танец““ во 1956 година настапил во познатата сала "Карнеџи хол" во Њујорк. По настапите, весниците секогаш биле полни со позитивни критики за неговата изведба. Овој албум е само потврда дека Тале е најголемиот кларинетист на сите времиња во светот, кој во многу области на музиката демонстрира недостижна техника, силна инвентивност, запрепастувачка импровизациска виртуозност и нагласена музичка компонентност…"-  Напис под наслов: "НОВ АЛБУМ НА ТАЛЕ ОГНЕНОВСКИ Микс од македонски народни ора и светски џез од стариот мајстор Во минатиот месец излезе најновиот албум на познатиот македонски инструменталист Тале Огненовски, во издание на американската дискографска куќа "Индипендент рекордс"", Напишано од Андриана Андова, весник Дневник“, број 1764, 18 март 2006 година, Скопје, Република Македонија).

Неговата животна приказна, која почна пред точно 90 години во Битола, заврши по плодни девет децении минати во постојана потрага на совршениот звук на кларинетот со кој суверено владееше. Всушност, неговите дела го претставуваат кларинетот како инструмент што има можност да го изрази највисокиот опсег во музиката. Освен на овој инструмент, Огненовски свиреше и на македонските традиционални инструменти: гајда, зурла и тапан, а е автор и на многубројни композиции, претежно за кларинет.

Music Album: "Mozart and Ognenovski Clarinet Concertos"
(Record label: Independent Records, USA.  Catalog: IR37223)


Amazon.com reviewer: Outstanding Musical Interpretation, April 13, 2006.
Erika Borsos: "Outstanding Musical Interpretation - 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… 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…”
Amazon.com reviewer: Exquisite, you must buy it, April 14, 2011.
Michele Zukovsky, 1st Carinet Los Angeles Philharmonic: “Exquisite, you must buy it - After hearing this great artist, I was absolutely dumbfounded.. 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!! …bravo mr. Ognenovski, for inspiring the world of clarinetists… ”

Julia Heinen, Professor of Clarinet, California State University, Northridge: “A New Standard has Been Set - 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.”
Amazon.com reviewer: Unique Genius, April 16, 2011.
David Gilman, orchestral & solo clarinetist, Lake Forest, CA, USA: “Unique Genius - 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.”

Music Album: Macedonian Clarinet Jazz Composed By Tale Ognenovski

(Record label: Independent Records, USA. Catalog: IR38824)

Amazon.com reviewer: “Original, Artistic, Creative, Enjoyable“, Reviewed in the United States on October 9, 2008
Erika Borsos:
“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…“

mi2n   Music Industry News Network on April 27, 2017 (95th birth anniversary of Tale Ognenovski, the greatest clarinetist of all time and one of the greatest instrumental composers of all time) published an Article entitled: "New Digital Album Of Clarinetist And Composer Tale Ognenovski: “Mozart Clarinet Concerto In A, K. 622 Arranged For Two Clarinets By Tale Ognenovski” (Posted: 04-27-2017)  -  "...unique recordings of "Mozart Clarinet Concerto"  in the world with simultaneously playing two clarinets with mixing two different arrangements: for first clarinet and second clarinet performed by the same clarinetist (Tale Ognenovski)…” - Article entitled, "New Digital Album Of Clarinetist And Composer Tale Ognenovski: “Mozart Clarinet Concerto In A, K. 622 Arranged For Two Clarinets by Tale Ognenovski”” - mi2n (Music Industry News Network), 04-27-2017.      https://web.archive.org/web/20170809044454/http://www.mi2n.com/press.php3?press_nb=197557
In the article was written: “Tale Ognenovski (April 27, 1922 - June 19, 2012) was a Macedonian multi-instrumentalist who played clarinet, recorder (“kavalche”), tin whistle, small bagpipe, zurna, and drums. Stevan Ognenovski, Mag. Scient., the only son of clarinetist and composer Tale Ognenovski and Nevena Ognenovska on the base of recording of “Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A Major, K.622” from 2005, arranged in 2015 nine new tracks with two clarinets, first clarinet and second clarinet performed by Tale Ognenovski. In this sensational recording Tale Ognenovski performed with first, second and two clarinets. Tale Ognenovski performed on a standard-range A clarinet, Buffet Crampon, System Boehm, Model No. 1. Tale Ognenovski with his son Stevan Ognenovski, Mag. Scient. arranged for two clarinets Musical Masterpiece “Clarinet Concerto in A major, K. 622” composed by musical genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart . With this arrangement for two clarinets, Tale Ognenovski on clarinet with accompaniment of his son Stevan Ognenovski, Mag. Scient. on drum recorded two Audio CD entitled:
Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A, K. 622 Arranged for Two Clarinets by Tale Ognenovski” (Record label: Independent Records, USA. Catalog: IR43832) and "Mozart and Ognenovski Clarinet Concertos" (Record label: Independent Records, USA. Catalog: IR37223). Perhaps these two Audio CDs are unique recordings in the world where every notes of measure numbers III/311-313 are played by Tale Ognenovski exactly as they are written in: “W. A. MOZART KONZERT für klarinette und orchester A dur – A major – La majeur K.V. 622 Ausgabe für Klarinette und Klavier von H. Kling”, published by VEB Breitkopf & Härtel Musikverlag Leipzig, EDITION BREITKOPH Nr. 2300, Printed in Germany. This Audio CD entitled: “Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A, K. 622 Arranged for Two Clarinets by Tale Ognenovski” with Audio CD entitled: “Mozart and Ognenovski Clarinet Concertos" performed by Tale Ognenovski are unique recordings in the world with simultaneously playing two clarinets with mixing two different arrangements: for first clarinet and second clarinet performed by the same clarinetist (Tale Ognenovski). When you listen these three tracks:
Track 4 – “Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A, K. 622 Allegro Arranged for Two Clarinets by Tale Ognenovski”
Track 5 – “Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A, K. 622 Adagio Arranged for Two Clarinets by Tale Ognenovski”
Track 6 – “Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A, K. 622 Rondo Allegro Arranged for Two Clarinets by Tale Ognenovski”
of the Digital Music Audio CD entitled: “Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A, K. 622 Arranged for Two Clarinets by Tale Ognenovski” you will have impression that Tale Ognenovski uses two clarinets simultaneously with two different arrangements. In other words: use two clarinets by a single performer (Tale Ognenovski) - Playing the first clarinet with first arrangement and second clarinet with second arrangement that's played simultaneously – by one performer (Tale Ognenovski). In reality these three tracks were made by mixing one audio recording with clarinet performance according the arrangement for first clarinet (performed by Tale Ognenovski) and separate audio recording (performed by Tale Ognenovski) with clarinet performance according the arrangement for second clarinet. It was possible to make a mix of two audio recording with arrangements for the first and second clarinet (performed by Tale Ognenovski) thanks to the excellent synchronization of performance of the arrangement for the second clarinet by clarinetist Tale Ognenovski while he simultaneously listening to the tape of his performance on the clarinet with the arrangement for the first clarinet. Such perfect synchronization of two clarinets by the performance of two different arrangements (performed by Tale Ognenovski) in recording concert of “Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A, K. 622” is unique in the world. Digital Music Audio CD entitled: “Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A, K. 622 Arranged for Two Clarinets by Tale Ognenovski” is another confirmation that Tale Ognenovski is the greatest clarinetist of all time and one of the most important musicians of all time in the world…”

It was a rare opportunity to have a show in the open-air in Gene­va. For this occasion, Gitan installed lighting effects that vied with ingenuity... Nothing here that resembled classical dances of our Western World... They have the rhythm of the dances of their country in their blood.... We preferred to give a general impression of this spectacle, which accentuated the originality and the qualities of this ensemble.” The above appeared in an article written  by Ed.

Tour of France - http://www.taleognenovski.mk/france1959.html
Tale Ognenovski was clarinet and reed pipe (“kavalche”) virtuoso soloist with
"Macedonian National Ensemble for Folk Dances and Songs "Tanec"" during their tour of France from September 20 until November 25, 1959. They performed 83 concerts in 58 towns and cities in France. 20 million people would have seen them on the most popular programme on French Television. Radio Paris recorded a 45-minute programme of Macedonian folk dances and songs. The Manager of Ensemble ‘Tanec’s tour of France was Mr Raymond Guillier, also Director of his own compa-ny ‘Les grands spectacles internationaux Les productions Raymond Guillier’.
“What ensemble ‘Tanec’ is playing in the spirit of Macedonia, believe me no other Ensemble in the world can perform. All great professional Ensembles in the world possess something special. Your girls and boys put their whole heart into the dance and example of this is clarinetist Tale Ognenovski…” -  The above appeared in an article entitled ‘Your dance fascinates me’ (Macedonian: ”Вашата игра ме фасцинира”)….’, written by M. Georgievski, and published in the newspaper ‘Vecher’, Skopje, Republic of Macedonia on September 14, 1964.

“Everyone in the audience applauded as if they were four people, and the Macedonian National Ballet left a great impression in Bourges…Two dances in particular were appreciated last night on the stage of the Grand Palais, the Dance of the sabre and the Dance of the village fair (two separate photos are shown, the top one being ‘the dance of the sabre’ and the bottom being ‘the dance of village fair).’ (On the right side of the bottom photograph can be seen virtuoso clarinet soloist Tale Ognenovski - remark made by Stevan Ognenovski). But the Macedonian dances, once they began, developed from a dead slow pace and quickened, becoming a festival of colours, a storm of costumes and a sports test allied to the art of folklore. It must be understood that you have to be professional and have extraordinary soul and inspiration to play ‘Drachevka’ (In this Macedonian folk dance, the virtuoso reed pipe soloist was Tale Ognenovski - remark made by Stevan Ognenovski), ‘Berovka’ (In this Macedonian folk dance, the virtuoso clarinet soloist was Tale Ognenovski - remark made by Stevan Ognenovski) and the exciting Serbian folk dance (the virtuoso reed pipe soloist was Tale Ognenovski - remark made by Stevan Ognenovski). The audience much liked the dance ‘Roussalies’ as well as the dance ‘Tchifte Tchamtche’ (In this Macedonian folk dance, the virtuoso clarinet soloist was Tale Ognenovski - remark made by Stevan Ognenovski), and lastly ‘Chote’ (‘Shote’-In this Albanian folk dance, the virtuoso clarinet soloist was Tale Ognenovski - remark made by Stevan Ognenovski), a dance of love that is lively and colourful... Tanec is the name of this group who have won over the audience. The quality and talent of this group is admirable...This is the first time that they have performed in France... At the end of their concert, the members of Ensemble ‘Tanec’ remained on stage and were applauded by the Bourges audiences for more than a quarter of an hour.” The above comes from an article, entitled “Hier soir au GRAND-PALAIS BRILLANTE “PREMIERE” des Ballets de Macedoine” (“Yesterday evening in GRAND-PALAIS Brilliant first performance of National Ballet of Macedonia.”), that appeared in the newspaper ‘Le Berry Republicain’ in Bourges, France, on September 24, 1959.




“The first performance of the National Ballet of Macedonia achieved tremendous success” - La nouvelle republique du Centre

“The first performance of the National Ballet of Macedonia was a tremendous success. Everyone in the hall applauded with enthusiasm, here in the ‘Grand Palais’ in Bourges at the first perfor-mance in France of the National Ballet of Macedonia… The first performance in Bourges was a spectacle...The members of the National Ballet of Macedonia arrived four days ago in Paris and have been shown on television...” This is from an arcticle entitled “Hier soir a Bourges, La “pre-miere” nationale des Ballets de Macedoine a remporte un enorme succes” (Yesterday evening in Bourges, The first national Ballet of Macedonia achieved tremendous success.”).

Press releases


“Maestro Tale Ognenovski plays classical music brilliantly (this is the opinion of experts of classical music) on the clarinet - Mozart, Weber...etc. He plays everything; it doesn’t matter how difficult or complicated it is. In the records it says of his debut, first with the pianist Nino Cipushev, and later with the famous pianist Ladislav Palfi, that the way Tale Ognenovski plays the most complicated classic music is on a par with that of the most famous clarinetists in the world. Experts of classical music have said that Tale Ognenovski’s skill with the clarinet is nowhere near that of the most famous classical music clarinetist in the world. On the contrary.” Journalist Violeta Hadzi Skerleva wrote this in her article “ Skopje. First Clarinetist of ’94 Tale Ognenovski, a portrait” published in the magazine “Ekran”, Skopje, Republic of Macedonia, October 20, 1994.

Dear Tale and Stevan. My name is Dimce Cvetkovski.
I was born on November 7, 1957 (in the village of Arvati near Krani in Prespa). I came to the United States on February 20, 1970. I was 12 years old. But I still remember everything, even though I have not been back to Macedonia since I came to the United States. My father has been back a few times but I haven’t. Maybe one of these days when things are not so busy. Both of my parents Cvetko and Sofija are still alive and have just retired. I have a sister Stefka who is 5 years younger than me. I am 41 years old and have been married for 17 years. My wife’s name is Gerrie (Geraldine) who is American. I also have 3 sons Steven (14 years old), Jeffrey (12 years old and Scott (9 years old)... In March 1, 1993, I opened my own KARATE STUDIO WESTERN NEW YORK KARATE CENTER. This is my own business...I have listened to Tale’s music since I was a little boy in Macedonia. I remember I was very young when I first heard BRUSNICHKO ORO and TALEVO SVADBARSKO ORO. In 1983, my father went to Macedonia for a visit. He brought to me 2 records (8 Macedonian folk dances - ORA). One record has POLJANSKO ORO, NEVENINO ORO etc... The other record has BUKOVSKO SVADBARSKO ORO, RESENSKO ORO, PRILEPSKO etc... In 1986 I went to Canada for a visit and I bought a cassette that has 12 Macedonian folk dances - ORA (CHALGIITE NA TALE OGNENOVSKI, KUKUSHKO ORO, RISTEVO ORO...). Today I have about 60 Macedonian folk dances - ORA from Tale Ognenovski. His music must live forever. Tale’s music touches my HEART and SOUL. Sometimes when I listen to his music there are tears from my eyes running down my face. Nobody in the world can play the clarinet like Tale. I have listened to a lot of clarinet music from many countries but nobody comes close to Tale. He is simply the BEST. When I was a little boy in Macedonia, I also played the reed pipe (“kavalche”) with my grandfather Mitre. My grandfather was a shepherd and I used to help him on the farm. But I have always loved clarinet music. I am 41 year old. Two years ago, I bought a clarinet. I listen by ear and try to play. I do not know how to read music. Maybe one day I will try to take lessons. My middle son Jeffrey takes lessons and plays the clarinet and the saxophone in school. He is in sixth grade. He is very, very good. He is the best in his school on the clarinet and the saxophone. My oldest Steven always listens to Tale’s music. He loves it. I hope someday I can play like Tale, even a little bit. I hope someday I get to meet you and your father Tale. It would be a great honor to shake the hand of the best clarinetist in the world. Maestro Tale is the best. I hope he lives a long, long, long time...All I want is his music to live forever. People need to listen and hear this great clarinetist. With Great greetings With Great Happiness. (January 24, 1999)...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE BEST CLARINETIST IN THE WORLD! (April 10, 1999)... As I drive in my car to and from my business and other places throughout the day, I spend 11/2 hours each day listening to Tale’s music. Tale is my hero. His music is incredible. His approach to every note is so unique. His improvisations and solos are out of this world, and no one can even come close. It is true that when listening to Tale, his music takes you to different worlds and different dimensions. I feel very special and lucky to have friends like you, and being touched so deeply by Tale’s music (December 21, 1999)... Jim (Dimce) Cvetkovski, Buffalo, New York, USA

He was a member of the Tanec group during the 1950s and lead clarinet of the Radio Skopje calgia. 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. This is the style that still holds sway, and which is the basis for Macedonia's own new composed folk music."” Information of this book: Title: World Music Volume One: Africa, Europe and the Middle East, THE ROUGH GUIDE; Editors: Simon Broughton, Mark Ellingham and Richard Trillo; Publisher: Rough Guides, 1999; Length: 762 pages; ISBN: 1858286352, 9781858286358 was included in the Google Books search and was stored in its digital database.

Perhaps this music YouTube video is the most documented biography for any music artist in the world with chronological presentation of Tale Ognenovski’s work as clarinetist, composer and recording artist.

Brilliant Career   http://www.taleognenovski.mk/comments.html

“It is a phenomenon that Tale Ognenovski for every type of music has the right amount of embouchure and vibrato, especially for classic music where some circumstances require a totally level tone. It is particularly phenomenal that in a second he can change both the colour and the vibrato. The standard is that one timbre and one kind of vibrato exclude another colour and another kind...” – Professor Ladislav Palfi

In a programme with the title ‘Sunday afternoon’ shown on ‘Macedonian Radio Television’ on February 28, 1993, the journalist said about Tale Ognenovski, “One clarinet, one life; Half a century of magic with the clarinet; The clarinet as a life; These are only some of the titles of articles in the newspapers that have been written for the clarinet virtuoso Tale Ognenovski who plays Macedonian folk dances as superbly as he does classical music by Mozart, Wagner, Cavallini... ”Besides some Macedonian folk dances, the following pieces of music were included on the pro-gramme: Mozart’s ‘Concert in A Major for Clarinet and Orchestra K. 622’ and Wagner’s ‘Adagio for Clarinet’, both performed by Tale Ognenovski as clarinet soloist accompanied on the piano by the excellent pianist Tanja Shopova, and Cavallini’s Concert ‘Fiori Rossiniani’, performed by Tale Ognenovski as clarinet soloist accompanied on the piano by the famous pianist and composer Professor Ladislav Palfi.

In the programme with the title ‘Good morning, good day’ shown on ‘Macedonian Radio Television’ on December 5, 1993, the journalist Brane Stefanovski said of Tale Ognenovski, “The living legend of the Macedonian clarinet. Tale Ognenovski can easily be recognized from older records of ‘Macedonian Radio Television’. Tale Ognenovski’s music is amazing, with his melodious, clean quality of tone  and interpretations for which he has received recognition from world-famous experts of the clarinet and of Macedonian music. The journalist Elizabeta Matic commented, “Everything that has a connection with the clarinet and this man is far from ordinary. Perhaps it is a miracle, this dexterity; perhaps he is a genius, or something more than that. Perhaps the reason for this is genetic disposition in his family where his father played the bagpipe (‘gajdadjija’), but the fact that his grandfather and great-grandfather had played some folk instrument suggests that talent has developed over the generations to raise the little reed pipe (‘kavalche’) player to the highest level reserved for the best. His music is always based on the  strict rules of Macedonian folklore... Tale Ognenovski is an Ambassador in the presentation of the valuable things that Macedonia possesses: Macedonian complex rhythms...The best clarinetist that this country has ever had. The man from whom his followers can learn a great deal...” In this interview, Tale Ognenovski said that Macedonian folklore is the best folklore in the World, and that the inspiration he received when
composing music he got from Macedonian Folk Music. “

Tale Ognenovski translated whatever came into his head directly into the clarinet. On June 16, 1998, an interview with Tale Ognenovski was recorded for the television programme ‘Good Day, Macedonia’ on Macedonian Television. During the interview, the journalist Tatjana Stojchevska Manchevska asked Tale Ognenovski to play some jazz music. He performed some jazz music that he composed right there and then without any prior planning. He demonstrated his amazing musical talent as a clarinet and reed pipe player and composer performing jazz music on this programme. The music performed by him on the programme can be heard on his Web site at the Internet address http://www.taleognenovski.mk   The television programme ‘Good Day, Macedonia’ was dedicated to Tale Ognenovski on the 50th anniversary of  the founding of the FOLK MUSIC ORCHESTRA of Macedonian Radio Television. An interview with Tale Ognenovski  “This year sees the 50th anniversary of the founding of the ‘Folk Music Orchestra’ of Macedonian Radio Television. The most famous clarinetist Tale Ognenovski has for a long time performed in this Orchestra,” said Simona Ugrinovska, Manager of the programme ‘Good Day Macedonia’. She added that the interview with Tale Ognenovski had been done by her colleague Tatjana Stojchevska Manchevska.  In the programme, first shown on July 1, 1998, then repeated on July 4, 1998, the journalist Tatjana Stojchevska Manchevska said: “Fifty years ago, at the first Macedonian Republic festival of Folk Dances and Songs held during the period October 6-10, 1948, Tale Ognenovski received the First Award as the best clarinetist.  If you listen to  the music of Tale Ognenovski, this magnificent, unique, talented virtuoso of the clarinet and composer of Macedonian folk dances, you will imagine an exciting folklore story and sense unparalleled technique in the musical expression of this folk genius. With his maestro, solo improvisations Tale Ognenovski made performances of "Macedonian National Ensemble for Folk Dances and Songs "Tanec""  the most successful they could be. The most significant debut in his rich career was in the famous Carnegie Hall on January 27, 1956. “The artist must adopt the artistic rules perfectly, to be able to break them afterwards.” This com-ment by Michelangelo described the talent that Tale Ognenovski possessed...In a perfect way he interpreted Mozart, Wagner and Cavallini, and jazz improvisations in the style of Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw. Tale Ognenovski has composed 150 Macedonian folk dances...”


http://www.taleognenovski.mk/comments.html

“Tanec, a Macedonian group, is a lively, handsome and magnificently skilled company… accompanied sometimes by a shepherd’s pipe … An audience which jammed Carnegie to capacity cheered and applauded the folk dancing with as much enthusiasm as if it had been witnessing classical, theatrical ballet at its most glittering.” The above is from an article entitled ‘Yugoslav Folk Ballet,’ written by Walter Terry, and that appeared in the New York Herald Tribune on January 28, 1956. New York City, USA. Reed pipe soloist was Tale Ognenovski.

“These perfect artists performed many marvelous dances, and the astonished audience greeted them with long applause. The program was filled with folk dances and songs. In the past we have had some interesting concerts from the East and West but none of them had been as successful and been so well-received by the public as the Yugoslav Folk Ballet ‘Tanec’. Venerable Carnegie Hall fairly vibrated as the audience blistered its palms in appreciation...” wrote Robert Coleman in the New York Daily Mirror, New York City, USA on January 28, 1956.

Tale Ognenovski’s First Award at the Yugoslav (Former Yugoslavia) Folk Music Festival in Opatija, Croatia, 1951.   http://www.taleognenovski.mk/opatija1951.html

85 Folk groups performed at the Yugoslav (Former Yugoslavia) Folk Music Festival in Opatija, Croatia, that took place during the period September 9 to 13, 1951. They came from Serbia (Sep-tember 9th, represented by 15 villages), Bosnia and Herzegovina (September 10th, represented by 15 villages), Montenegro (September 11th, represented by 8 villages), Slovenia (September 11th, represented by 5 villages), Macedonia (September 12th, represented by 23 villages) and Croatia (September 13th, represented by 19 villages). “Teshkoto (the virtuoso clarinet soloist was Tale Ognenovski - remark made by Stevan Ognenovski) from Nizhopole (Bitola) means ‘heavy’, and indicates the heavy rhythm which is typical of very ancient dances...” This appeared in the ‘International Folk Music Journal’ under the title ‘Extracts from PROGRAMME NOTES ON THE DANCES AND SONGS performed at the Yugoslav Folk Music Festival’, with the subtitle ‘MACEDONIA - represented by 23 villages’, published by The International Folk Music Council, London, in March, 1952, Volume IV, pages 60-64. At the Yugoslav (Former Yugoslaviia) the Folk Music Festival in Opatija, the Folk Dance group from the Bitola village of Nizhopole from Cultural - Educational society “Jonche Georgievski” from the Bitola village of Dihovo in which Tale Ognenovski was playing as a clarinet soloist, created a sensation and received First Award as the best Folk Dance group at the festival. Tale Ognenovski, with his masterly playing solo clarinet, deserved the award together with other members of the group. This was a great success because in this Festival participated 85 different folk dance groups from Macedonia, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The musical part of the group had only two members: Tale Ognenovski played solo clarinet with the accompaniment of drummer Lambe Petrovski. This is a musical sensation, to receive the First Award with an orchestra consisting of only two members. The dancers and singers were Vera Cholakovska, Cveta Petrovska, Sakjime Alimovska, Nada, Marika, Menan, Sefer, Mirko, Vangel, and Dimche Talevski. There was a full house at the concert hall in the Kvarner hotel in Opatija, and the audience was fascinated by the music and the three dances performed by the Ensemble: ‘Za ramo Teshkoto’, ‘Beranche’ and ‘Vlashko za ramo’ (these folk dances involved singing by all ten members of the Ensemble). Tale Ognenovski was arranger of these folk dances, and made them more effective with his solo improvisations. Dr. Vinko Zganec wrote, under the title “Yugoslav Musical folklore at the Festival in Opatija”, “the clarinet (the virtuoso clarinet soloist was Tale Ognenovski -
remark made by the Stevan Ogneno-vski) and the large drum provided a most effective combination for the folk dance
from Kozjak, as did the clarinet with the small drum for the folk dance “Teshkoto” from Nizhopole. The audience greets the debut of the group from Nidzopole with great applause... Delegates at the Conference of the International Folk Music Council in Opatia from September 8-14, 1951, were present at this concert. Many of the world’s reporters took photos of the members of the group regarding their excellent debut and their receiving First Award at this festival (Source: a letter from Mr. Mile Petrovski, Bitola, Republic of Macedonia, May 15, 1965, and an informal interview with Mrs. Vera Cholakovska Petrovska and Mr. Mile Petrovski made by Stevan Ognenovski on May 3, 1998).

“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.” From an article written by William Hawkins, and that appeared in the New York World Telegram, New York City, USA on January 28, 1956.

"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 an unfair trade for the four little swans in ''Swan Lake''… '' From an article written by Claudia Cassidy and entitled “On the Aisle - Yugoslav Ballet a Colorful Addition to International Dance.” It appeared in the Chicago Daily Tribune, Chicago, Illinois, USA on February 6, 1956.

‘‘Until half-past eight, Carnegie Hall was full to capacity, without any of its 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’ (the virtuoso clarinet soloist was Tale Ognenovski - remark made by Stevan Ognenovski) was even repeated, and to repeat a performance on the American stage is a really rare and exclusive event…”, wrote Stjepan Pucak in his article entitled “First days in America” (Macedonian:  ““Првите денови во Америка”), published in the newspaper “Nova Makedonija”, Skopje, People’s Republic of Macedonia, on February 7, 1956.
The prodigy, however, is called Tale Ognenovski…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” (“За Наша Музика”) ISBN 9989-600-01-5, published by BID “Misirkov”, 1994)   http://www.taleognenovski.mk/kniga.html



Tale Ognenovski, Clarinetist and Composer is author of the book “Macedonian dances”(
“Македонски ора) published by the Cultural Educational Association, Skopje, Republic of Macedonia in 1989.    http://www.taleognenovski.mk/kniga.html

The book “Macedonian  dances” by Tale Ognenovski, 1989

Tale Ognenovski is the author of the book “Macedonian folk dances” (Macedonian: “Makedonski ora”) 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. The harmony symbols of the Macedonian folk
dances (composer, Tale Ognenovski) were written by Blagoja Deskovski. The notographer is Vasko Petkovski. 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 Radio Skopje wrote, “Besides his affirming Macedonian folk dances with magnetic tapes and gramophone records, Tale Ognenovski has written this book of Macedonian folk danc-es, the first such book in Macedonia. He has for a long time been associated with the traditional expression of the Folk Genius and an endless desire to develop the smallest element of folk music into a complex instrumental content... The name of Tale Ognenovski has for forty years performed, as much music on the Radio as he has in concert halls in our country, and in many European and non-European countries. He began to play from the earliest age with the reed pipe (‘kavalche’) in his village of Brusnik near Bitola, and he received recognition from the music profession at the First Republic Festival for Macedonian folk dances and songs in Skopje, 1948, where he won First Award for the clarinet as the best clarinetist. It was at this time, following the Festival and his first great award, that Ognenovski decided on a personal objective of developing a creative traditional style in the area of instrumental music. Year by year he developed into a real virtuoso and artist. He created his own style of interpreting folk dances (‘ora’). His particular characteristic involved his own creative improvisations called ‘maninja’. At the same time as he was performing music like this, he started composing his own folk dances. As a composer, he kept the traditional folk expression. Many years of performing with the orchestras of Radio Television Skopje, with Ensemble ‘Tanec’ and  with other folk ensembles helped him create ‘Ognenovski’s style’ when producing his own Macedonian folk dances. These are easily recognizable by their exuberant melody and rich rhythms in correlation with the traditional style. In this area, he is equally well recognized as a performer of ‘chalgiski ora’, folk dances where the melody is always the first objective. He is a composer of folk dances in the ‘new town’ tradition, which he interprets with the Folk Music Orchestra and where the melody is created in the context of a logical harmony. This book containing Macedonian folk dances as well as gramophone records represents an important piece of literature for current and future-generation instrumentalists. This book will remind us of one uniquely talented artist, Tale Ognenovski.”

Classical Music since 1952

From November 15, 1951 till 1954, Tale Ognenovski worked with the ‘Police Wind Orchestra.’ From 1954 till 1956, he worked with the ‘Skopje Public Town Orchestra’. The repertoire for both of these Orchestras consisted of classical music. Tale Ognenovski passed the auditions to join these Orchestras with flying colours. In 1951, and just a day before the audition, the archivist Mitko gave him the music score from a composition including the opera ‘Carmen’ by Georges Bizet, the opera ‘The Troubadour’ by Guiseppe Verdi and ‘Makedonka’ by Ilija Todorovski. The Director and Conductor Ilija Todorovski was surprised at Tale Ognenovski’s extremely impressive degree of skill in interpreting classical music. He introduced him to the pianist Nino Cipushev, who today lives in Switzerland, and together they prepared the concert ‘Concert Polka for Clarinet’ by Miler Bela with the rhythms Allegro, Andante and Tempo di polka. In December 1952, Tale Ognenovski as clarinet soloist and with Cipushev as piano accompaniment, performed the same concert in the ‘Police House’ in Skopje with great success. It was with this magnificent performance that Tale Ognenovski became the first clarinet soloist who had ever performed a classical concert for the clarinet in the Republic of Macedonia. This was an exceptional event in the history of the country’s music. Present at this concert were the composer Gligor Smokvarski, Professor Ilija Nikolovski, the composer, professor and pianist Ladislav Palfi, Ilija Todorovski, Micho Kostovski, Stefan Gajdov, the composer and Director of the School of Music in Skopje, all members of the ‘Police Wind Orchestra’ and other citizens. Following this very successful concert Tale Ognenovski asked Gligor Smokvarski to make arrangements for the ‘Police Wind Orchestra’ to play the concert. On May 24, 1953, the classical concert ‘Concert Polka for Clarinet’ by Miler Bela, with Gli-gor Smokvarski’s arrangement for the ‘Police Wind Orchestra’ (comprising about 30 musicians), conducted by Micho Kostovski and with Tale Ognenovski as a clarinet soloist, was performed in the Radio Skopje (now: Macedonian Radio Television) building and broadcast live to the nation via Radio Skopje. This classical concert contains some very difficult parts with many cadenzas, which are very difficult for a clarinet soloist to perform, and require great skill. Tale Ognenovski performed magnificently in this concert. In the audience were Stefan Gajdov the composer, Ladislav Palfi the composer, professor and pianist, other composers and other citizens. The concert was a great success and the audience warmly applauded the fascinating playing of Tale Ognenovski on the clarinet and all members of the Orchestra. After the concert, Professor Ladislav Palfi personally congratulated Tale Ognenovski and expressed his hope that they two could work together. (The source of the above is a letter from Professor Ladislav Palfi dated May 23, 1973, and a letter from Sime Pavlovski and Jordan Canevski, dated May, 1998). The members of this Wind orchestra were the famous musician and composer Djakonovski Dragan-Shpato, Sime Pavlovski, Jordan Canevski, Petkovski Vasko, Chkatrovski Kire, Zafirovski Metodija, Nikolovski Pero, Anton Dzaja, Asanovic Sherlo, Savo, Chedo, Pavle, Zhivko, Stanko, Domazetovski Nikola, Asanovic Miki, Ristovski Vlasto, Andrej Beljan, Dimitrovski Vlado, Kiro Stoev, Grashic, Simonovski Dzodza, Krapovski Paskal, Nikolovski Tome, Manevski Dimitar and other musicians.

This same concert, with the ‘Police Wind Orchestra’ conducted by Micho Kostovski and Tale Ognenovski playing solo on clarinet, was performed also in the ‘Police House’, the ‘State Hospi­tal’, the restaurant ‘Kermes’ in Skopje and in other towns in Macedonia such as Resen and Ohrid and, everywhere, these tremendously successful events were significant ones in the musical life of Macedonia during the years 1952-1955. The programme of these concerts in addition included some parts of classical works. These included Bizet’s ‘Carmen’, ‘The Troubadour’, ‘Aida’, ‘Rigoletto’, Verdi’s ‘Nabucco’ and ‘La Traviata’, ‘Oberon’ by Carl Maria von Weber, Tchaikovsky’s ‘1812 Overture’, Puccini’s ‘Tosca’ and Rossini’s ‘The Barber of Seville’.

Miler Bela’s ‘Concert Polka for Clarinet’, with the ‘Army Orchestra’ conducted by Vaso Chelebic, and Tale Ognenovski as clarinet soloist, was performed in the ‘Army House’ in Skopje in 1953 with great success.

Tale Ognenovski inherited his great talent and musical genius from his great-grandfather Ognen and grandfather Riste, both of whom were excellent players on the reed pipe (“kavalche”), and from his father Jovan who was an excellent player on the bagpipe (“gajda”). At every celebration in his village of Brusnik, his father Jovan invited to his home the clarinetist Sterjo, accompanied by two other musicians who played the violin and drum, or the clarinetist Lambo, together with two other musicians who played the violin and drum (Lambo’s son Tode played the drum). On these occasions Tale’s father Jovan played the bagpipe. When little Tale was six years old he began to accompany them playing the “daire” (some kind of little drum). It was during these moments that Tale began to love playing musical instruments. He began to play on the reed pipe (“kavalche”) at the age of 7 (1929) when he also made his first musical composition. These particularly happy times in Tale’s life were broken suddenly, in 1933, when his father Jovan died. By the time Tale was 15 (1937) he was an excellent player on the reed pipe. During one celebration in Brusnik he asked the clarinetist Vasil Talevski to lend him his clarinet. Tale began to play the clarinet for the first time, and all the villagers who were present, including Vasil Talevski, Mile Karangelevski and the priest Spase were amazed at how well he played. It was then that one of the most successful careers in the world of music began. Tale’s grandmother Marija (Mara) and mother Fanija (Vanka) provided some money to buy Tale his first clarinet, and the priest Spase helped them to order it from Celje, Slovenia. Tale began to play the clarinet at many celebrations and concerts in villages and the town of Bitola with many other musicians. His youngest brother Cane was also very talented musically. He was a great singer of Macedonian folk songs and also an excellent drummer.
From 1946 till 1951 he played in the Cultural-Educational Societies of “Svetlost” and “Stiv Nau-mov” in Bitola, and folk dance groups from the villages of Brusnik, Dihovo, Nizhopole, Rotino and Lavci. Always a lover of classical music, Tale Ognenovski was prepared to study alone to learn to play classical music on the clarinet. He performed many times in radio broadcasts on Radio Bitola.
He received the First Award as the best clarinetist at the first regional Bitola Festival of Folk Dances and Songs, held on October 9-11, 1947. From November 1, 1948 till December 30, 1948, he was a member of the Folk Orchestra of Radio Skopje at the invitation of Mr. Vasil Hadzimanov and Mr. Nikolaj Galevski. This was after he had received the First Award Clarinet as the best clarinetist at the first Macedonia Festival of Folk Dances and Songs, held in Skopje in 1948. He played many times with the Radio Skopje Studio Folk Orchestra, and many of these performances were broadcast.
Tale Ognenovski lived in Skopje in the Republic of Macedonia. He died in Skopje on June 19, 2012. He was playing the clarinet professionally 75 years. His clarinet was a ‘Buf-fet- Crampon’; he used Vandoren 5RV and 5RV Lyre Clarinet Mouthpieces and Vandoren Clarinet Reeds. Tale Ognenovski has opened up new possibilities for the clarinet that no one could have predicted. His virtuoso and complex compositions are both interesting and fascinating for people to listen to and to admire. He has made solo performances and recorded pieces with many orchestras. He has been featured in many televised concerts broadcast in Europe and United States. His unique style with the clarinet has earned him an international reputation. His genius is ably demonstrated through his musical interpretations, compositions and band leadership. His compositions and clarinet interpretations are some of the most spectacular in the world of music. His talent as a performer of folk, jazz and classical music has been recognised on audio samples on his Internet Web site, http://www.taleognenovski.mk Tale Ognenovski became a surprise sensation with his performances as a clarinet and pipe virtuoso soloist at the concert with Ensemble ‘Tanec’ at world-famous Carnegie Hall on January 27, 1956. His legend will live forever. His music has become a large part of the lives of many people. His music has moved their souls and touched their hearts. Music, which will forever be played and forever be loved, has brought tears to their eyes and smiles to their faces. His composition range, his virtuosity, and his originality with a clarinet have made him a brilliant cult hero, a genius in the musical world. He is a genius, a brilliant musician and a giant of music.

The LP record “Macedonian folk dances played by Tale Ognenovski” (“Makedonski igraorni ora sviri Tale Ognenovski”) reference number LP 1439 STEREO was produced by Radio Television Belgrade in Belgrade in 1979. On the back cover of this record Gjoko Georgiev, the well-known editor of music for Radio Television Skopje, 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 up he developed his skill and become wealthy, and his clarinet became unique in the hands of a poor village boy from the mountains of Pelister. This record is only a small example of Tale’s work, but enough to make you aware of his strength and talent”   http://www.taleognenovski.mk/uniq.html

This Macedonian clarinetist is an extraordinary musician” - Ilustrovana Politika, Serbia, Yugoslavia, 1979.

“…Radio Television Belgrade released 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. (This commentary is a message to the reader on the release of the record RTB LP 1439 STEREO).

‘‘Until half-past eight, Carnegie Hall was full to capacity, without any of its 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’ (the virtuoso clarinet soloist was Tale Ognenovski - remark made by Stevan Ognenovski) was even repeated, and to repeat a performance on the American stage is a really rare and exclusive event…”, wrote Stjepan Pucak in his article entitled “First days in America” (Macedonian:  ““Првите денови во Америка”), published in the newspaper “Nova Makedonija”, Skopje, People’s Republic of Macedonia, on February 7, 1956.
 


600th anniversary of the founding of the village of Brusnik

On August 8 and 9, 1992, Tale Ognenovski played on the clarinet his own compositions  of Macedonian folk dances at celebrations marking the 600th anniversary of the  founding of the village of Brusnik.  Mr. Kiro Gligorov, President of the Republic of Macedonia and Mr. Petar, Metropolitan of the Macedonian Orthodox Church were present at celebrations marking the 600th anniversary of the establishment of the village of Brusnik, near Bitola, on August 8 and 9, 1992. Tale Ognenovski played on the clarinet his own compositions of Macedonian folk dances ac-companied by the Culture and Arts Society “Ilinden” from Bitola. Tale Ognenovski amazed all those present at the celebration with his marvellous solo performance on the clarinet. The celebration was recorded and shown on “Macedonian Radio Television” in the programme “Amidst the village - 600 years of Brusnik”, 1992. The Macedonia Radio Television journalist Su-zana Trajkovska commented about the programme, “Tale Ognenovski is a virtuoso of the clarinet...”


http://www.taleognenovski.mk/brusnika.html

“This was “Tanec,” the Yugoslavian National Folk Ballet. “Tanec” means “dance,” but “dance” in a larger form than customary. Besides dance alone, it conveys drama, ritual, tradition, songs, even military maneuvers... there was a remarkable precision in both dancing and playing... Clarinet, bass fiddle, violin, drums, guitar and flute provided most of the accompaniments in various combinations…” From an article written by Samuel Singer entitled “Yugoslav Ballet Visits Academy”. It appeared in The Philadelphia Inquirer,  Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA on February 8, 1956.

”Anyone watching the Yugoslav National Folk Ballet last night in Constitution Hall could have guessed without any difficulty the major emotions and situations involved in the dancing… A Sopska Poskocica is devised to show the girls how handsome and wonderful and brilliant and 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...” This is from an article written by Paul Hume and entitled “Yugoslav Dancers Shoot the Works”. It appeared in The Washington Post and Times Herald, Washington, D.C., USA on February 10, 1956.

“…includes singers and mu­sicians as well: and singing may be part of the dance, just as musicians may take an active part... Last night’s program included songs and dances from Macedonia, Serbia, Croatia and Dalmacia. The first impression, however, must be one of rhythmic precision... Nor was the performance without spectacle... one dance, Sopska Poskocica  it was no more than a show-off dance. As such it was highly effective... The music, whether for singing or dancing, had the same spontaneous folk quality and an exotic character." From an article written by John Kraglund, entitled “Music in Toronto”and appearing in The Globe and Mail, Toronto, Canada on February 14, 1956.

‘The Macedonian Ensemble for folk dances and songs ‘Tanec’ has already been performing in America for several weeks... All the concerts have had record audiences… immediately after the performance in Carnegie Hall, the press wrote numerous compliments. Almost all articles in the newspapers were written in superlatives. Every impression of the concert was that this concert evening would remain unforgettable. There were many reasons for this but, primarily, it was the wonderful folk music with a full range of temperament and miraculous rhythm, voluminous colour and sonority, perfect coordination between the dancers and the musicians…‘‘ - This article, written by Naum Nachevski, appeared in the newspaper “Nova Makedonija”, Skopje, People’s Republic of Macedonia, on February 18, 1956, under the title, “TANEC receive applause in America” (Macedonian:  “Танецсобира аплаузи по Америка).





Interview of Tale Ognenovski for the newspaper "Nova Makedonija" on October 11, 2003
Tale Ognenovski: “I received the First Award Clarinet as a best clarinetist at the First Republic Macedonian Festival of Folk Dances and Songs, Skopje, October 6-10, 1948. I performed as a virtuoso clarinet and reed pipe soloist with the Macedonian National Ensemble for Folk Dances and Songs "Tanec" on American television, CBS (Columbia Broadcasting System), on January 22, 1956, on French Television on September 20 and 21, 1956, on Swiss Television, on July, 1959… Parts of the articles in the newspapers: “…some remarkable music on both orthodox and unorthodox instruments - a raucous and unforgettable pipe…,” written by John Martin, The New York Times, January 28, 1956,  Title: "Ballet: Yugoslav Folk Art 'Tanec' Dancers Appear at Carnegie Hall in Display of Tremendous Skill,"  is related to my appearance at world-famous Carnegie Hall as reed pipe and clarinet soloist. 
“…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 unfair trade for the four little swans in "Swan Lake." They are brilliant, gay, and worth seeing...,” written by Claudia Cassidy, title: "On the Aisle Yugoslav Ballet a Colorful Addition to International Dance", and published in the newspaper Chicago Daily Tribune, on  February 6, 1956. I was a virtuoso clarinet soloist in Sopska Poskocica ("Shopska potskoknuvachka") but also and arranger of music because I added my own musical phrases and improvisations in more parts of the dance. I performed with much faster rhythm than appear in the original version of this folk dance, which contribute all articles in the newspapers for this dance to be brilliants. 
“…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." Written by Walter Terry, title: 'Yugoslav Folk Ballet", New York Herald Tribune, January 28, 1956. 
“…This group would be hard to beat…”  written by Albert Goldeberg, title "Yugoslav Folk Ballet Opens Engagement",  Los Angeles Times, March 13, 1956.
“…"Macedonian Tune," which in its intricate rhythms and plaintive melody should at least make Dave Brubeck send out an emergency call for Darius Milhaud..." Written by R. H. Hagan, title "Yugoslav Ballet Proves Folk Dancing 'Tricky' ", San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco, March 8, 1956.
“…Together they make as vigorous a display of dancing as the U.S. has never seen." Title: "Dance Bouncing Brigands, Yugoslav come to U.S.", Life, USA, April 9, 1956. 
My contribution for these wonderful articles in the newspapers was the greatest regarding the other musicians of Ensemble “Tanec”.  I was virtuoso clarinet and reed pipe soloist in the most parts of the programme of Ensemble “Tanec.” I was Head of the “Folk Music Orchestra” of “Macedonian Radio Television.” I performed with many Cultural Artistically Societies. I recorded many gramophone records.   On October, 2001, is released my CD-album entitled, "Jazz, Macedonian Folk Dances and Classical Music." Record Label: Independent Records, USA. This Audio CD is the best album for all time for instrumental music. This album is confirmation that I am the greatest clarinetist, reed piper, zourlist and small bagpiper of all time and one of the greatest composers in the world of music. My sincere gratitude for I won top honours as the winner of 11 Oktomvri award, the highest and the most prestigious national award in Republic of Macedonia. This Award gave me inspiration for new composing... My biography was published in the book on December 2000 and entitled "Tale Ognenovski Virtuoso of the Clarinet and Composer", and written by  Stevan Ognenovski, Mag.Scient.  Publishing house is MATICA MAKEDONSKA. The book is published in both Macedonian and English. My biography is published on the Web site www.taleognenovski.com.mk, since September 18, 1998, and written by the same author, my son Stevan Ognenovski, Mag.Scient.” These words appeared in an article entitled, “Tale Ognenovski, Clarinetist, and Musical Virtuoso, which has been touring World” and published in the newspaper "Nova Makedonija",

His phenomenal success in Ensemble ‘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. “spectacle … stunning show that any set of spectators would find hard to resist … thousand different shades of dynamics … rapidity … conscious virtuosity … the broken circles of the kolo of the Macedonian mountains … curious musical instruments that accompany many of the dances … a dateless reed pipe …” This comes from an article written by music critic John Martin, entitled "THE DANCE: FOLK ART; Group From Yugoslavia In Impressive Debut Learning vs. Magic No Macedonian Monopoly The Week's Events" and published in the The New York Times on February 5, 1956, p. 114.

Extraordinary feelings, undoubtedly evokes monographic work of your great musical opus, rarely inventive and gifted instrumentalist and composer. Numerous tours and awards in our country and in the world talking about your virtuosity in unsurpassed merger of oriental and western music. Priceless is your merit for promotion of Macedonian traditional and folk music around the world. But at the same time it should be noted and pedagogical activity with young enthusiasts - your followers. Your music and solo performances, left a mark of unsurpassed clarinetist who his perpetual inspiration finds in the  most valuable that has this country – Macedonian folklore. I think that words cannot express what is experienced in the moments of your interpretations. But I still believe in the value of this monographic work that will remain a permanent mark for one glowing personality for future generations.

“Почитуван господине Огненовски,
Несекојдневно е чуството кое несомнено го буди монографското дело на Вашиот огромен музички опус, како ретко инвентивен и надарен инструменталист и композитор. Многубројните гостувања и награди кај нас и во светот говорат за Вашата виртуозност во ненадминливиот спој на ориенталната и западната музика. Непроценлива е Вашата заслуга за афирмација на македонската изворна и народна музика ширум светот. Но, истовремено треба да се истакне и педагошката активност со младите ентузијасти – Вашите следбеници. Вашата музика, солистичките настапи, оставија белег на ненадминлив кларинетист кој својата непресушна инспирација ја наоѓа во највредното што го има ова поднебје – македонскиот фолклор.  Мислам дека со зборови не може да се искаже се она што се доживува во миговите на Вашите интерпретации. Но, сепак верувам во вредноста на ова монографско дело кое ќе остане како траен белег за едно блескаво име на идните генерации.
Борис Трајковски, Претседател на Република Македонија

SAMPLES FROM THE REVIEWERS OF THIS MONOGRAPH
This monograph consists of 12 important chapters. Every chapter in its own way represents a looking glass of the artist’s profile.

In the first chapter the author, using selected material, has included biographical data and individual articles about Tale Ognenovski’s performances, as well as significant statements about his contribution towards the common proclamation of our cultural values with Ensemble ‘Tanec’ on their mammoth tours in the United States of America, Canada and Germany in 1956, followed by the tours in France and Switzerland  in 1959. Per-haps the most significant of his performances with Ensemble ‘Tanec’ was the one in the famous Carnegie Hall in America. After these particular appearances that introduced Tale Ognenovski with Ensemble ‘Tanec’ to the world, in the next chapter the author succeeds in presenting the most significant journalist and professional comments about this folk genius of the clarinet. These articles record the numerous awards and honours that he received for his artistic works. The author Stevan Ognenovski includes the music notation of Tale Ognenovski’s own dance compositions, in addition to the “Tale Ognenovski Concert for Clarinet No. 1” and the “Tale Ognenovski Jazz composition No. 1”. With all these the artist’s profile has become richer… This monograph contains valuable material for researchers in the area of folklore to use to study successfully this phenomenon called Tale Ognenovski." - Kiril Todevski, Ethnomusicologist.
"This book can be distinguished from others by the way research has been extraordinarily com-plete and scrupulously conducted.
An enormous number of richly illustrated moments in his life and the creative style of Tale Ognenovski make it possible for everyone to see the extraordinary values and dimensions of this artistic person, as one of the most important instrumental maes-tros in the world and a uniquely creative musician. Following the life history and the art of this great musician, Stevan Ognenovski M.Sc. presents the rich variety of events during these times and the creative works of the maestro. Before our very eyes appear numerous persons and manifestations as components of one treas-ured part of Macedonian spirit and cultural history. These things contribute additionally towards the value of this book…" - Dushko Dimitrovski, Ethnomusicologist.

“The 35th anniversary of the founding of “Radio Television Skopje” (now: Macedonian Radio Television) .
”..Tale Ognenovski who has demonstrated his rich talent by performing with all three different folk music orchestras...” - LP ULS-578

In 1979, Jugoton produced the LP reference number ULS-578 (P 1979) presenting recordings of Tale Ognenovski performing for Radio Television Skopje. The LP contains 15 Macedonian folk dances and songs, one of which is the Macedonian folk dance “Veleshko zhensko oro”, composed and performed by the virtuoso clarinet soloist Tale Ognenovski. Some text is written on the back cover of this LP in both Macedonian and English language. A part of this text reads:

THE SKOPJE RADIO AND TELEVISION FOLK MUSIC ORCHESTRAS THE FOLK MUSIC ORCHESTRA

...The basic form in which it presents both songs and dances is the so-called level of improvisation which being both inspiring and inventive is relatively close to the common folk way of playing music, which in conditions of live folklore helps the song not to become petrified. This orchestra also fosters differing styles and arrangements. Besides Nikola Galevski, a number of talented instru-mentalists have contributed greatly to the qualitative growth of this ensemble. We should certainly mention the names of Angel Nanchevski, Pero Jarchev, Kocho Petrovski, Ljupcho Pandilov, Ivan Terziev, Stevo Teodosiievski, Tale Ognenovski and Blagoja Deskovski - who is in charge of this orchestra - and others.

THE “CHALGII” ORCHESTRA ...Firmly principled in its style, and adaptable to the “chalgija” sound of as many of our folklore regions as possible, the orchestra has always selected as its members the best instrumentalists from all three different “chalgija” schools, that is, from the Skopje, Veles and Bitola schools. Its rich repertoire ranges from this and last century’s old-town songs and dances to those with patriotic motives created during the Liberation war. As “chalgija” is also characteristic of the folklore of other nationalities and ethnic groups who live in Macedonia, the orchestra has produced many Turkish, Albanian, Vlach and Gypsy songs and dances working together with a number of top singers and groups that cultivate this style. However, the orchestra’s instrumentalists themselves have often successfully managed to blend their own group singing into this orchestra. To mention a few: Ordan Hristov, Emin Memedov, Bekir Hadzi Kune, Jashar, Aki Memedov-Chun, Taki Najdenov, Koce Pandilov and Tale Ognenovski who has demonstrated his rich talent performing with all three different folk music orchestras.

THE AUTHENTIC FOLK INSTRUMENTS ORCHESTRA …Unique in its sound and very skilful in its ability to create styles and regional sound combinations, this ensemble is a truly spirited performer of our centuries-long authentic music treasure. Working together with many eminent singers and talented individuals from this area who have accurately interpreted our country songs, it has created a large repertoire. The manager of the orchestra is Pece Atanasovski, a well-known master on the bagpipe even outside of Yugoslavia. Among the other well-known instrumentalists, we should mention Todor Boshov, Mile Kolarov, Tale Ognenovski, Nikola Cvetkovski, Meophail Sakipov, and Angele Dimovski. With their numerous performances and tours both in Yugoslavia and abroad, the Radio Skopje folk music orchestras have played a great part in the presentation of Macedonian folk music, and its beauty, to the world. http://www.taleognenovski.mk/uls578.html

So brilliant commentaries written by the most prominent music critics and published in the elite newspapers and magazines in North America are not written for any ensemble or an artist in any musical genre performed on tour in North America until now.” - Tale Ognenovski interview with Valentina Gjorgievska of Shilo Magazine, Australian Macedonian monthly magazine, Sydney, Australia, Issue: August 2011, No 51, Article entitled: “Tale Ognenovski, one of the best clarinet virtuoso in the world who flashed at Carnegie Hall”
