On this day, January 27 is another great jubilee for him, and for the Macedonian culture, 50 years of the performance of Tale Ognenovski at Carnegie Hall in New York, together with the Macedonian National Ensemble for Folk Dances and Songs "Tanec“ where, according to the reaction of the audience and the writing of the American stamp, achieved a sensational success. Ognenovski is regarded as a musical genius, the greatest instrumentalist of the clarinet, reed pipe (“kavalche”), small bagpipezurna (“zurla”) of all time in the world and one of the greatest composers in the world music history. The new album was recorded, mixed and made mastering by Dimitar Dimovski in his "Promuzika Tra La La Studio" in Skopje, and was released under the label of the American record label "Independent Records".

In this recording the clarinet is accompanied by his son Stevan Ognenovski on a drum and a second clarinet (performed by Tale Ognenovski)… Tale Ognenovski's performance is the most beautiful and fastest performance of Mozart's clarinet concert of all time in the world. Mozart's (“Clarinet Concerto in A major, K. 622”) concert for clarinet is certainly one of the most beautiful concerts of the classical era. 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.

“…It is a phenomenon that Tale Ognenovski has the right amount of “ambazhura” and vibrato for every type of music. He maintains a perfectly level tone for classical music when it is required. It is particularly amazing that he can change the shade and the vibrato in a single moment…”
“... It is not widely known both in Yugoslavia and around the world, that the renowned virtuoso clarinetist Tale Ognenovski is a concert clarinetist. Indeed, it is not widely known that Tale Ognenovski can play other styles of music such as jazz, improvising in the style of Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw, or dance music. It is a phenomenon that Tale Ognenovski has the right amount of “ambazhura” and vibrato for every type of music. He maintains a perfectly level tone for classical music when it is required. It is particularly amazing that he can change the shade and the vibrato in a single moment. The standard is that one timbre and one kind of vibrato exclude all others.” From an article by Professor Ladislav Palfi, the famous pianist, in a letter dated May 23, 1973. (Source: the book entitled: “Tale Ognenovski Virtuoso of the Clarinetand Composer / Тале Огненовски виртуоз на кларинет и композитор (2000)”, written by Stevan Ognenovski, Mag. Scient.

“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…”
In the programme with the title ‘Good morning, good day’ shown on ‘Macedonian Radio Television’, Skopje, Republic of Macedonia 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. 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..."

“This Macedonian clarinetist is an extraordinary musician…”

“…Radio Television Belgrade 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, Yugoslavia, 1979, 
(This commentary is a message to the reader on the release of the record RTB LP 1439 STEREO).

TALE IS UNIQUE. During the past 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” - a comment by Gjoko Georgiev on LP 1439 RTB, produced in 1979.
The LP record “Macedonian folk dances played by Tale Ognenovski” (“Makedonski igraorni ora sviri Tale Ognenovski" - Macedonian: "Македонски играорни ора свири ТАЛЕ ОГНЕНОВСКИ”) 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 (now: Macedonian Radio Television), wrote this article entitled “TALE IS UNIQUE” in Macedonian: “ЕДЕН Е ТАЛЕ“ 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 (Carl Maria von Weber) and Mozart’s Concert in A Major (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart) 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”. (Source: the book entitled: “Tale Ognenovski Virtuoso of the Clarinetand Composer / Тале Огненовски виртуоз на кларинет и композитор (2000)”, written by Stevan Ognenovski, Mag.

“The prodigy, however, is called Tale Ognenovski…” – From the book entitled: “For Our Music” (“За Наша Музика”), 1994, written by
Dushko Dimitrovski
“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 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 labryinths 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” (“За Наша Музика”); 1994; ISBN 9989-600-01-5; pp. 114 - 115, published by BID “Misirkov”, Skopje, Republic of Macedonia (Source: the book entitled: “Tale Ognenovski Virtuoso of the Clarinetand Composer / Тале Огненовски виртуоз на кларинет и композитор (2000)”, written by Stevan Ognenovski, Mag.

written by Stevan Ognenovski. Mag. Scient.
“Tale Ognenovski is one of the greatest instrumentalists and composers in the world of music. He made the connection between Oriental and Western Music… Tale Ognenovski’s numerous musical works belong to different genres; together, his folk dances and classical and jazz compositions established the clarinet as an instrument capable of the highest range of expression in solo music. Ognenovski’s compositions are extremely skilful and he exploits the sounds of different sounding registers of the instrument very effectively. He is one of the greatest exponents of composers of clarinet music and is the finest exponent of players of the clarinet. His performances are superb, and the sound he produces reveals just how beautifully the clarinet can be played. Tale Ognenovski’s Macedonian folk dances have been performed in Switzerland (Mechanlizenz), France (Sacem), Sweden (Gema), Finland (Teosto), Great Britain, Denmark and Austria. He has appeared with the Macedonian Ensemble of Folk Dances and Songs ‘Tanec’ on the world’s most prestigious concert stages during highly successful tours throughout North America and Europe. The group became a major attraction in every major city during the tours… He is the greatest clarinetist of all time, demonstrating unique skill, a wealth of invention, amazing improvisational virtuosity and outstanding musical competence in all areas of music…” was written by Stevan Ognenovski.

“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.

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."”

Amazon.com reviewer: World-class Jazz Compositions & Traditional Macedonian Folk, April 24, 2004.

Reviewer Erika Borsos of the Amazon.com comments, "World-class Jazz Compositions & Traditional Macedonian Folk - 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…The labyrinthine musical phrases that flow from 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…”

MusicWeb International: Tale Ognenovski is undoubtedly an exceptional artist, November 3, 2003.

Reviewer Neil Horner of the MusicWeb International comments, "The clarinet playing of Tale Ognenovski is much celebrated in his part of the world but he also toured in the west many years ago and even performed at Carnegie Hall. 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 sound world and perhaps also those who care to hear the source music’s of their classical favourites, the aforementioned Bartók but also, here, perhaps people like Skalkottas…"  http://www.musicweb-international.com/classrev/2003/Nov03/Ognenovski.htm

Following every concert of ‘Tanec’s’ North American tour, critics in almost every newspaper commented about the Macedonian folk dance ‘Sopska Poskocica’, "...in the case of one dance, Sopska Poskocica, it was nothing more than a demonstration in dancing. As such it was highly effective...A dance like Sopska Poskocica is produced to demonstrate...The speed at which it is danced, and the tremendous energy and precision of the six men who dance it, makes it unique…It earned an encore..." 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 dances where Tale Ognenovski has performed as virtuoso clarinet and pipe soloist… Tale Ognenovski played as virtuoso and clarinet and reed pipe (‘kavalche’) soloist for most parts of the programme… Musical genius Tale Ognenovski performed in the world-famous Carnegie Hall as clarinet and pipe virtuoso soloist.

Surely one performance in New York is not enough. The house was completely sold out, and others no doubt would follow the same pattern," from an article written by John Martin entitled "Ballet: Yugoslav Folk Art ‘Tanec’ Dancers Appear at Carnegie Hall in Display of Tremendous Skill," and published in The New York Times, New York, on January 28, 1956… “In "Sopska Poskocica," (the clarinet soloist was Tale Ognenovski - remark made by Stevan Ognenovski) to make the point, five young men took over the stage and indulged in show-off tactics to attract the girl.... Everywhere in this program, however, there was something to be admired…the regional treasure of peoples with proud and ancient heritages, were revealed, to a remarkable degree, in dance and in music… 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." 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…” From an article entitled, “Virtuoso for the World Books with Macedonian Sign“ (Macedonian: “Виртуоз за светски книги со Македонски предзнак”), written by Greta Odzakova and published  in the newspaper “Vecher” , Skopje, Republic of Macedonia, on February 2, 2002. <>“…The prodigy, however, is called Tale 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 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…  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 labryinths 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.

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…” <>

“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.

Condolences for the death of the Musical Genius Tale Ognenovski:
“Dear Stevan and family,
On June 19, 2012 the world lost a brilliant artist, musician, composer, author and innovator. There will never be another Tale Ognenovski, but his music and spirit will live on forever. He was truly gifted, talented, and unique in style.  I have been listening to his music since childhood, and he inspired me from the very first time I came in contact with your family 13 years ago. That is when I got my first clarinet, and even though I don't read music and have not have any music teachers, I still play his music on my clarinet often.  There is not a day that goes by that I don't listen to his music. We are very saddened that he has passed away. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Stevan, your wife Margarita, your sons Nikola and Kliment. With our love,
The Cvetkovski Family - Dimce, Gerrie, Steven, Jeffrey, Scott, Cvetko, Sofija, and Stefka”, Jim (Dimce) Cvetkovski, June 25, 2012.

“Hello stevan my name is steven cvetkovski and my father is Dimce Cvetkovski  Itis a honor and pleasure to be talking the son of one of my idols growing up. I am so sorry to hear about your father. Your father has brought so much love and joy in to our family with his music.  My father and I listened to your father’s music every single day. I was born and raised around your father’s music and it made me the man I am today. I am in the music industry also. I do song writing for Sony and my brother jeff and I own a publishing company in NY and LA called Final Play Music Group. www.finalplaymusic.com . Your father has touched my heart with music in ways I can’t even describe to you. Every single note that man played i felt it. You’re not just listening to the music you are feeling it. If you can’t feel every note that he plays you’re not listening right. Every song had a story and I felt it. So thank you and your father for bring me and my family so much happiness and joy. I will never stop spreading your father’s music to everyone. The world needs to hear Tale…” With my families love to yours, Steven Cvetkovski, June 25, 2012.
Hi Stevan,

I was so sad to hear about the loss of your father.
As you know, you and your father have such an impact on my dad and it has trickled down to me and my brothers as well. I grew up listening to your father in car rides and Macedonian festivals. The world has truly lost the most passionate talented musician around. His music has inspired my father and for that has inspired me. I am so sorry for your loss and wish you and your family wonderful health. The Macedonian Festival here in Buffalo, New York will be happening in July and I will make sure his songs will be played! God Bless! - Scott Cvetkovski, Third son of Dimce (Jim) Cvetkovski, June 25, 2012.

“Tanec, a Macedonian group, is a lively, handsome and magnificently skilled company… accompanied sometimes by a shepherd’s pipe (Tale Ognenovski - remark made by Stevan Ognenovski) which surely pierced the air of classical Greece… 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.” - Walter Terry, the New York Herald Tribune.

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.

The Metro Goldwyn Mayer Company prepared a special banquet for Macedonian State Ensemble of Folk Dances and Songs ‘Tanec’
During the three-month tour across the USA (from January 22 to April 12,1956), concerts were performed in many cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco. After three fascinating concerts in the Philharmonic Auditorium, Los Angeles, California on March 12, 13 and 14, 1956, a group of Hollywood artists invited all members of Ensemble ‘Tanec’ to visit the Metro Goldwyn Mayer studio in Hollywood. In the main MGM studio, Tale Ognenovski and other members of the Ensemble were photographed together with June Allyson, one of the most famous stars of the screen in the U.S. The Metro Goldwyn Mayer Company prepared a special banquet for the members of Ensemble ‘Tanec’.




Macedonian State Ensemble of Folk Dances and Songs ‘Tanec’с performances at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York, April 11 and 12, 1956 

After the tremendous success in Carnegie Hall, even though only one performance in New York was planned for in the contract with the American tour managers, Ensemble ‘Tanec’ made two additional two performances in the city, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on April 11 and 12, 1956. 
The Brooklyn Academy of Music has been the hub of performing arts activities in Brooklyn since it opened for business in 1861. The Opera House has a 2000-seat auditorium with excellent acoustics. 

Tale Ognenovski was clarinet and reed pipe virtuoso 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 including Paris, Le Havre, Nantes, Poitiers, Clermont-Ferrand, Lille, Cherbourg, Toulon, Toulouse, Rennes, Bourges, Chaumont, Solon de Provence, Laval, Brest, Lorient, St. Nazaire, Angers, Tours, Limoges, Pont a Mouson, Bourgen Brest, Belfor, St Entienne, St Brieuc, St Malo, Vendome, Gien, Orleans, Niort, La Rochelle, Marmonde, Mont de Marson, Dax, Tarbes, Agen, Albi, Pau, Carcassonne, St Gaudens, Beziers, Parpignon, Arcachon, Nimes, Grenoble, Lyon, Villeurbone and Gueret.ere. They performed with amazing success to full houses everywhere. The Ensemble twice had performances broadcast on television, on September 21 and 22, 1959: 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 company ‘Les grands spectacles internationaux Les productions Raymond Guillier’ of 129 Boulevard Massena, Paris. He specialised in managing international shows in Paris. The majority of the programme of Ensemble Tanec’s French tour comprised of Macedonian folk dances and songs with the rest made up of Serbian and Croatian dances and songs and one Albanian dance. Tale Ognenovski played as virtuoso clarinet and reed pipe (“kavalche”) soloist for most of the programme, in particular in the Macedonian folk dances ‘A Bride’s Dance (Nevestinsko Oro)’, ‘Chupurlika’, ‘Shopska Petorka’, ‘Kopachka’, ‘The Shepherds’ Dance (Ovcharsko Oro), ‘Drachevka’, ‘Chifte Chamche’and ‘Soborski Igri’, in Macedonian songs, Serbian folk dances and songs and ‘SHOTE’, an Albanian folk dance. Tale Ognenovski was a virtuoso clarinet soloist in ‘Shopska petorka’ but also an arranger of the music because he added his own improvisations in some areas of the dance. This is the case with other dances that Tale Ognenovski performed as virtuoso clarinet and reed pipe soloist. Tanec included, as part of their tour of France, two performances in Dortmund, Germany, on September 18 and 19, 1959. About 7000 people were present at each concert. 

“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 ‘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 for playing ‘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’, 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 was a tremendous success. Everyone in the hall applauded with enthusiasm, here in the ‘Grand Palais’ in Bourges at the first performance 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 article entitled “Hier soir a Bourges, La “premiere” nationale des Ballets de Macedoine a remporte un enorme succes” (Yesterday evening in Bourges, The first national Ballet of Macedonia achieved tremendous success.”). It was published in the newspaper “La nouvelle republique du Centre”, Bourges, France on, September 24, 1959. (Source: the book entitled: “Tale Ognenovski Virtuoso of the Clarinetand Composer / Тале Огненовски виртуоз на кларинет и композитор (2000)”, written by Stevan Ognenovski, Mag.

"Your dance fascinates me…Your girls and boys put their whole heart into the dance. I’ll tell you why I think this is so. I know that the clarinetist Tale…"
“Everyone who went to the concerts by Ensemble ‘Tanec’ in Paris and other towns and cities in France during the tour in 1959 of a little over two months was fascinated. Yes, audiences opened wide their hearts and didn’t think anything of their hands while applauding your folk dancers. What ‘Tanec’ is playing in the spirit of Macedonia, believe me no other Ensemble in the world can perform...Your girls and boys put their whole heart into the dance. I’ll tell you why I think this is so. I know that the clarinetist Tale (Tale Ognenovski - remark made by Stevan Ognenovski) after every concert played clarinet solos and amused us well into the early hours. This hasn’t been the case with any other member from any other Ensembles. I want to present Tanec every year to the people of my country...” said Raymond Guillier (Director of his own company, ‘Les grands spectacles internationaux Les productions Raymond Guillier, 129 Boulevard Massena - Paris” - remark made by Stevan Ognenovski) Manager of international exhibitions in Paris, France. 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.

“Nothing here that resembled classical dances of our Western World...a spectacle in the open in Port Gitana Bellevue, Geneva…” - Ed. Mt. Tribune de Geneve
“...We were presented with remarkable spectacles performed by the Yugoslavian National Folk Ballet ‘Tanec’ from Macedonia... 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. Mt.and entitled, ‘A Port-Gitana les ballets nationaux yougoslaves’, (‘In Port-Gitana, National Yugoslav Folklore Ballet’). It appeared in the ‘Tribune de Geneve’, Geneva on July 11, 1959. (Source: the book entitled: “Tale Ognenovski Virtuoso of the Clarinetand Composer / Тале Огненовски виртуоз на кларинет и композитор (2000)”, written by Stevan Ognenovski, Mag.

Tale Ognenovski’s First Award at the Yugoslav (Former Yugoslavia) Folk Music Festival in Opatija, Croatia, Former Yugoslavia, 1951. 
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 (September 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). “… From the time of the conquest of Alexander the Great to the modern era, Macedonia has been the scene of dramatic events, brutal invasions and profound social upheavals…Macedonian folk music is governed by rhythmic laws and set metres. Foreign influences, in so far as they existed, where subjected to the rules of accentuation of the Macedonian popular language. The melody is usually symmetrical…Teshkoto (the virtuoso clarinet soloist was Tale Ognenovski - remark made by Stevan Ognenovski) from Nidzopole (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) Folk Music Festival in Opatija, the Folk Dance group from the Bitola village of Nidzopole 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 orchestra consisting of only two members. The clarinetist Ognenovski and drummer Petrovski performed closely together. 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.  “The clarinet (the virtuoso clarinet soloist was Tale Ognenovski - remark made by Stevan Ognenovski) was as effective an accompaniment to the large drum in the folk dance from Kozjak as it was to the small drum in the folk dance ‘Teshkoto’ from Nidzopole. They provided a very effective combination” - Dr. Vinko Zganec in the cultural newsmagazine ‘Kulturni radnik’ Number 10-11, published in October 1951 in Zagreb, Croatia, This appeared in an article entitled ‘Yugoslav Musical folklore at the Festival in Opatija’. 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).  The Yugoslav (Former Yugoslavian) Folk Music Festival in Opatija had been specially arranged for the members of the Conference of the International Folk Music Council. “The Council has been fortunate in the national setting of its conferences, which each year has given a distinctive character to the proceedings. At the 1951 conference, held at Opatija from September 8th to 14th, we had the stimulus of exchanging views with and learning from our Yugoslav colleagues who have had the inestimable advantage of studying their folk music tradition whilst it is still in full flower; and we were privileged to see and hear for ourselves the beauty and variety of Yugoslav folk art in the wonderful Festival which had been especially arranged for the members of the Conference…” - ...” This appeared in an article entitled ‘Editorial’, and was published in the Journal of the International Folk Music Council, Vol. IV, page 1, in March, 1952. “It was natural that on this occasion expositions of Yugoslav folklore and music should form the backbone of the Conference, and these received the most wonderful illustrations in the nightly Festival which took place in the magnificent ballroom of a nearby hotel. Every evening, for three hours or more, we witnessed an astonishing pageant of costume and custom, ritual and social dance, song and instrumental playing by 700 performers brought together from every part of the country. This was a world whose riches most of us had barely guessed at and, in this highly concentrated presentation, it was an overwhelming and unforgettable experience...” This came from an article entitled ‘Some impressions of the Yugoslav Conference and Festival’, written by Marie Slocombe  (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marie_Slocombe), recorded music archivist at the BBC and published in the Journal of the International Folk Music Council, Vol. IV, page 2, in March, 1952.  IFMC - The International Folk Music Council (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Council_for_Traditional_Music) was established in 1947 in London, UK.

Tale Ognenovski’s triumphant success at the International Folklore Conference in Istanbul, Turkey, 1977. 
At the International Folklore Conference organized by the International Folklore Committee in Istanbul, Turkey, 1977, on the subject of “Folklore on the Radio” was Dushko Dimitrovski, Editor of the Folk Music Department for “Radio Television Skopje”

Amazon.com reviewer: World-class Jazz Compositions & Traditional Macedonian Folk, April 24, 2004.

Reviewer Erika Borsos of the Amazon.com comments, "World-class Jazz Compositions & Traditional Macedonian Folk - 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…The labyrinthine musical phrases that flow from 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…”

MusicWeb International: Tale Ognenovski is undoubtedly an exceptional artist, November 3, 2003.

Reviewer Neil Horner of the MusicWeb International comments, "The clarinet playing of Tale Ognenovski is much celebrated in his part of the world but he also toured in the west many years ago and even performed at Carnegie Hall. 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 sound world and perhaps also those who care to hear the source music’s of their classical favourites, the aforementioned Bartók but also, here, perhaps people like Skalkottas…"  http://www.musicweb-international.com/classrev/2003/Nov03/Ognenovski.htm

The Carnegie Hall nearly exploded as a result of the applause from the audience… I was a virtuoso clarinet soloist in ‘Sopska Poskocica’ (‘Shopska Podripnuvachka’) but I also  arranged  the music and added 80% my own improvisations to some parts of the dance. This has also been the case with others dances where I have performed as virtuoso clarinet and pipe soloist… The New York Times commented that the reed pipe of me, Tale Ognenovski in Carnegie Hall is unforgettable… At the end of the concert in Carnegie Hall, the audiences surrounded me and all the members of Ensemble "Tanec", congratulated us for our display of tremendous skill, and asked for our autographs. Many of them told  me that I am the number one clarinetist…  Thank you very much to other members, folk dancers and musicians of the Ensemble ‘Tanec’  for the magnificent performances during the three-month tour across North America…”.

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. 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!! …bravo mr. Ognenovski, for inspiring the world of clarinetists… ”
Amazon.com reviewer: A New Standard has Been Set, April 14, 2011.

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.”

Reviewer Erika Borsos of the Amazon.com comments, “Original, Artistic, Creative, Enjoyable - 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.

“The prodigy, however, is called Tale Ognenovski…” – From the book entitled: “For Our Music” (“За Наша Музика”), 1994, written by
Dushko Dimitrovski
“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 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 labryinths 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” (“За Наша Музика”);1994; ISBN 9989-600-01-5; pp. 114 - 115, published by BID “Misirkov”, Skopje, Republic of Macedonia

“Tale Ognenovski is the greatest clarinetist of all time, demonstrating unique skill, a wealth of invention, amazing improvisational virtuosity and outstanding musical competence in all areas of music…” – From the book entitled: “Tale Ognenovski Virtuoso of the Clarinet and Composer / Тале Огненовски виртуоз на кларинет и композитор”, 2000
written by Stevan Ognenovski. Mag. Scient.
“Tale Ognenovski is one of the greatest instrumentalists and composers in the world of music. He made the connection between Oriental and Western Music… Tale Ognenovski’s numerous musical works belong to different genres; together, his folk dances and classical and jazz compositions established the clarinet as an instrument capable of the highest range of expression in solo music. Ognenovski’s compositions are extremely skilful and he exploits the sounds of different sounding registers of the instrument very effectively. He is one of the greatest exponents of composers of clarinet music and is the finest exponent of players of the clarinet. His performances are superb, and the sound he produces reveals just how beautifully the clarinet can be played. Tale Ognenovski’s Macedonian folk dances have been performed in Switzerland (Mechanlizenz), France (Sacem), Sweden (Gema), Finland (Teosto), Great Britain, Denmark and Austria. He has appeared with the Macedonian Ensemble of Folk Dances and Songs ‘Tanec’ on the world’s most prestigious concert stages during highly successful tours throughout North America and Europe. The group became a major attraction in every major city during the tours… He is the greatest clarinetist of all time, demonstrating unique skill, a wealth of invention, amazing improvisational virtuosity and outstanding musical competence in all areas of music…” was written by Stevan Ognenovski.

“Tale Ognenovski, born in 1922 and one of the most influential musicians of the post-war era. He was a member of the Tanec group during the 1950s and lead clarinet of the Radio Skopje calgia. The composer of many tunes…” – From the chapter entitled: “Macedonia: tricky rhythms” written by Kim Burton on page 203 from the book entitled “Rough Guide to World Music Volume One: Africa, Europe & The Middle East”, 1999.

In the book entitled “Rough Guide to World Music Volume One: Africa, Europe & The Middle East” edited by: Simon Broughton, Mark Ellingham and Richard Trillo in the chapter entitled: “Macedonia: tricky rhythms” of this book, author Kim Burton on page 203 was written: “"One of the few clarinettists to have performed successfully both with a calgia and in the more modern style is Tale Ognenovski, born in 1922 and one of the most influential musicians of the post-war era. 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."”

The report was entitled ‘Awards for folk dances and songs, solo singers and players who participated at the First Republic of Macedonia Festival of Folk Dances and Songs’.
One of the highpoints of Tale Ognenovski’s successes was his participation in a competition during the ‘Republic of Macedonia Festival of Folk Dances and Songs’ during the period 6-10 October, 1948. 453 Folk dances and songs groups competed in the festival in Skopje, Republic of Macedonia.

4.   Tale Ognenovski’s First Award at the Yugoslav (Former Yugoslavia) Folk Music Festival in Opatija, Croatia, Former Yugoslavia, 1951. 
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 (September 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). “… From the time of the conquest of Alexander the Great to the modern era, Macedonia has been the scene of dramatic events, brutal invasions and profound social upheavals…Macedonian folk music is governed by rhythmic laws and set metres. Foreign influences, in so far as they existed, where subjected to the rules of accentuation of the Macedonian popular language. The melody is usually symmetrical…Teshkoto (the virtuoso clarinet soloist was Tale Ognenovski - remark made by Stevan Ognenovski) from Nidzopole (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) Folk Music Festival in Opatija, the Folk Dance group from the Bitola village of Nidzopole 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 orchestra consisting of only two members. The clarinetist Ognenovski and drummer Petrovski performed closely together. 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.  “The clarinet (the virtuoso clarinet soloist was Tale Ognenovski - remark made by Stevan Ognenovski) was as effective an accompaniment to the large drum in the folk dance from Kozjak as it was to the small drum in the folk dance ‘Teshkoto’ from Nidzopole. They provided a very effective combination” - Dr. Vinko Zganec in the cultural newsmagazine ‘Kulturni radnik’ Number 10-11, published in October 1951 in Zagreb, Croatia, This appeared in an article entitled ‘Yugoslav Musical folklore at the Festival in Opatija’. 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).  The Yugoslav (Former Yugoslavian) Folk Music Festival in Opatija had been specially arranged for the members of the Conference of the International Folk Music Council. “The Council has been fortunate in the national setting of its conferences, which each year has given a distinctive character to the proceedings. At the 1951 conference, held at Opatija from September 8th to 14th, we had the stimulus of exchanging views with and learning from our Yugoslav colleagues who have had the inestimable advantage of studying their folk music tradition whilst it is still in full flower; and we were privileged to see and hear for ourselves the beauty and variety of Yugoslav folk art in the wonderful Festival which had been especially arranged for the members of the Conference…” - ...” This appeared in an article entitled ‘Editorial’, and was published in the Journal of the International Folk Music Council, Vol. IV, page 1, in March, 1952. “It was natural that on this occasion expositions of Yugoslav folklore and music should form the backbone of the Conference, and these received the most wonderful illustrations in the nightly Festival which took place in the magnificent ballroom of a nearby hotel. Every evening, for three hours or more, we witnessed an astonishing pageant of costume and custom, ritual and social dance, song and instrumental playing by 700 performers brought together from every part of the country. This was a world whose riches most of us had barely guessed at and, in this highly concentrated presentation, it was an overwhelming and unforgettable experience...” This came from an article entitled ‘Some impressions of the Yugoslav Conference and Festival’, written by Marie Slocombe  (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marie_Slocombe), recorded music archivist at the BBC and published in the Journal of the International Folk Music Council, Vol. IV, page 2, in March, 1952. IFMC - The International Folk Music Council (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Council_for_Traditional_Music) was established in 1947 in London, UK.

Tale Ognenovski’s triumphant success at the International Folklore Conference in Istanbul, Turkey, 1977. 
At the International Folklore Conference organized by the International Folklore Committee in Istanbul, Turkey, 1977, on the subject of “Folklore on the Radio” was Dushko Dimitrovski, Editor of the Folk Music Department for “Radio Television Skopje”
(now: Macedonian Radio Television) from the Republic of Macedonia. He was there as a representative of Yugoslav Radio Television (Former Yugoslavia). He used records produced from magnetic tapes to present folklore material in his presentation entitled “ ‘Chalgii’ music in Macedonia”.  This folklore material was prepared in Skopje by ethnomusicologists Dushko Dimitrovski, Kiril Todevski and Metodija Simonovski. From the magnetic tape material were presented the recordings of two Macedonian folk dances: “Kasapsko oro”, arranged by Tale Ognenovski, and “Kumovo oro cocek”, composed by Tale Ognenovski and performed by him as clarinet soloist accompanied by the “Chalgii” orchestra of Radio Television Skopje. This created great interest not only amongst the delegates of the Conference but also around the world.

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."

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 (Profile of HANSHI JIM CVETKOVSKI on website of Western New York Karate Center http://wnykaratecenter.com/faq/hanshi-jim/) , Buffalo, New York, USA, March 26, 2006; E-mail:  shihandc@yahoo.com
