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.

Dr Vinko Zganec wrote “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.” 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).

No other nation in Europe has so rich folklore.

”The riches of your folklore have a strong influence on me. Your folklore is something really unusual. No other nation in Europe has such rich folklore.” This comment was by Mrs. Nataplesh, the Honorary Secretary of the International Folk Music Council (whose headquarters are in London, England), who was present on the Conference of the International Folk Music Council in Opatia during the period September 8-14, 1951. This came from an article entitled ‘Great interest for our folklore in Opatija.’ It was published in the newspaper ‘Nova Makedonija’, Skopje, Republic of Macedonia, on September 14, 1951.)

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 contact with the living material gave point and added significance to the theoretic discussions, for it showed that we were concerned with a form of artistic expression that is not merely an adornment but a condition of life. Indeed, there were moments during the Festival performances when we could recognize the magic of dance and song and believe in their power to drive away evil spirits, to induce fertility and to promote healing...” 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.

"From the time of the conquests of Alexander the Great to the modern era, Macedonia has been the scene of dramatic events, brutal invasions and profound social upheavals. Many different trends have met and clashed on this territory: trends which have inevitably left their traces on the life of the people and are reflected in its folk art. 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.

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.

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 instrumentalists 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 Deskoski - 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 given a true expression of 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.”

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

Before the start of Ensemble ‘Tanec’s’ concert in Massey Hall, Toronto, Canada an February 13, 1956, the Artistic Director of the Hall told professor Asparuh Hadzi Nikolov, the Artistic Director of the Ensemble, that it was a tradition that every performer at Massey Hall played the Canadian National Anthem at the beginning of every concert.  Professor Hadzi Nikolov replied that it would not be possible for the Ensemble to play the Canadian National Anthem right then, but that if they had been given a score for the Anthem the previous day, then it would have been played. Tale Ognenovski overheard this conversation and announced that the National Anthem would be played immediately from the score. He was given the score and, as he had a ‘B’ clarinet he began to play one tone with transposition above, with other members of the Ensemble, Ivan Terziev (flute), Nikola Galevski (violin), Aleksandar Sarievski (accordion), Todor Pavlovski Totka (guitar) and Reshad Muharedov (drum) accompanying him without transposition, which is an easier way to play. It was a highly successful rendition of the National Anthem and the concert was as spectacular as the other concerts in United States. Only the greatest instrumentalists in the world could play a composition like the Canadian National Anthem without any preparation in advance and with transposition one tone above.

There, he bewitched the audience with his performances as clarinet and pipe virtuoso soloist…There are some winning songs, too, and some remarkable music on both orthodox and unorthodox instruments - a raucous and unforgettable reed pipe (virtuoso pipe (“kavalche”) and the clarinet soloist was Tale Ognenovski – a remark made by Stevan Ognenovski)... From an article written by John Martin and published in The New York Times, New York City, USA, January 28, 1956, under the title: “Ballet: Yugoslav Folk Art ‘Tanec’ Dancers Appear at Carnegie Hall in Display of Tremendous Skill”.
“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 skillful 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.

Tale Ognenovski is the number one clarinetist
Musical genius Tale Ognenovski performed in the world-famous Carnegie Hall as clarinet and pipe virtuoso soloist. 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, 60-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’. 

The Metro Goldwyn Mayer Company prepared a special banquet for Ensemble 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’.

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. IFMC - The International Folk Music Council was established in 1947 in London, UK. “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.

“… 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.

Tale Ognenovski (Nationality: Macedonian) was the son of Jovan (1893–1933; Nationality: Macedonian) and Fanija (Vanka, 1893–1972; Nationality: Macedonian).  His paternal grandfather was Risto (Nationality: Macedonian), his paternal grandmother was Marija (Mara - Nationality: Macedonian) and his paternal great grandfather was Ognen (Macedonian: Огнен – English: Fiery; Nationality: Macedonian).

Tale Ognenovski inherited his great talent and musical genius from his great-grandfather Ognen and grandfather Risto, 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.

From 1946 till 1951 he played in the Cultural-Educational Societies of “Svetlost” and “Stiv Naumov” in Bitola, and folk dance groups from the villages of Brusnik, Dihovo, Nidzepole, 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 (now: Macedonian Radio Television) on 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. 
From 1949 to 1951, at the invitation of Mr. Angel Saldziev, Assistant Director in the Ministry of Science and Culture in Republic of Macedonia, Tale Ognenovski toured the Republic of Macedonia accompanied by folk dance groups from the villages of Brusnik, Dihovo, Nidzepole and Lavci, and the “Chalgii” orchestras of Radio Bitola and Radio Skopje. Mr. Angel Saldziev was the manager of these tours, which were at the time significant musical events in Macedonia.
Tale Ognenovski won First Award at the Yugoslav (Former Yugoslavia) Folk Music Festival in Opatija, Croatia, September 9-12, 1951, together with another 11 members of the Folk Dance Ensemble from the Bitola village of Nidzepole. This was out of 85 folk dance groups from Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Slovenia, Macedonia and Croatia. From 1951 till 1954, Tale Ognenovski worked as a member of the “Police Wind Orchestra”. 
In 1952, Tale Ognenovski became the first clarinet soloist in the history of the Republic of Macedonia to perform a classical concert for the clarinet.
In December 1952, Tale Ognenovski as clarinet soloist, together with the superb pianist Nino Cipushev as accompaniment, performed the classical concert “Concert Polka for Clarinet” by Miler Bela in the “Police House” in Skopje with outstanding success. This classical concert by Miler Bela consists of complicated parts with many cadenzas demanding great skill and expertise from a clarinet soloist. With his superb performance, Tale Ognenovski became the first clarinet soloist in the history of the Republic of Macedonia to perform a classical concert for the clarinet. This was a notable event in the history of Macedonian music.
He staged further classical performances throughout his career. On May 24, 1953 he played clarinet soloist in the classical concert “Concert Polka for Clarinet” by Miler Bela with Gligor Smokvarski’s arrangement for the “Public Police Wind Orchestra”, comprising about 30 musicians and conducted by Micho Kostovski. The concert was performed in the Radio Skopje building, and broadcast directly to the nation via Radio Skopje (now: Macedonian Radio Television).
Periodically, from 1949 till 1960, he played solo clarinet with the Small Radio Skopje Orchestra conducted by Nikola Galevski on an honorary basis. These concerts were also broadcast nationally by Radio Skopje. From November 15, 1951 till 1954, he worked with the “Public Police Wind Orchestra”. From 1954 till 1956, he worked with the “Public Town Skopje Orchestra,” and from 1956 till 1960 with the Macedonian State Ensemble of Folk Dances and Songs ‘Tanec’. (Source: the book entitled: “Tale Ognenovski Virtuoso of the Clarinetand Composer / Тале Огненовски виртуоз на кларинет и композитор (2000)”, written by Stevan Ognenovski, Mag.

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.”

“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.

Amazon.com Audio CD Customer Reviews: 


Original, Artistic, Creative, Enjoyable, October 9, 2008
“I am a fan of the clarinet and was absolutely blown away by the beautiful music on this CD. I have all the CDs produced by this fabulous clarinet player from Macedonia who is often called a "genius" which in my opinion is no exaggeration and this one is my favorite. Jazz music has a freedom of expression like few other musical styles. Tale Ognenovski uses the most intricate Western playing techniques and combines them with exotic Balkan stylizations creating a pure and genuine new dimensional sound. The listener's spirit soars, dances and flies with pleasure and anticipation gliding on every note and musical phrase. Besides the astonishing clarinet playing, Tale Ogenenovski is also a master player of the reed pipe, small bagpipe, zourla and drums which add more flavor and spice to the original, creative, and artistic clarinet music on this CD.

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…"

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

"Tale Ognenovski and his son Stevan Ognenovski arranged for two clarinets Clarinet Concerto in A Major, K.622, composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and recorded the albums “Mozart and Ognenovski Clarinet Concertos” and “Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A, K. 622 Arranged for Two Clarinets by Tale Ognenovski” . Perhaps these two albums are unique recordings of this concert with two clarinets where first clarinet with first arrangement and second clarinet with second arrangement that's played simultaneously – by one performer (Tale Ognenovski)... -  New York, NY Top40-Charts News published an article entitled, “Mozart And Ognenovski Is The Best Clarinet Concertos In The World” (Posted: 21/11/2014)  http://top40-charts.com/news.php?nid=105450

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…”

“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.

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

“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,

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.

EO 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.

“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...” - 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.

 “…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.

Janko Ilkovski said: “Listen Tale Ognenovski virtuoso performances of "Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A Major, K.622: Rondo - Allegro" (composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and arranged by Tale Ognenovski – YouTube Music Video: “Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A Major K.622 Rondo Allegro Performed by Tale Ognenovski” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbUqKvpmPfU) and "Piperkovo oro" (composed and arranged by Tale Ognenovski) and we will immediately recognize the unreachable virtuosity of Tale Ognenovski in the performance of the “Mozart Concert for Clarinet” and in the performance of his composition “Piperkovo oro”, our Macedonian Gene… Tale Ognenovski is Virtuoso, Mozart of the Macedonian music, Titan of the Clarinet, Musical Genius, Bard… 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… What words to use for his achievements will not be enough to explain his musical genius and it will be insufficient to explain his greatness..."

“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..."

“One hundred and fifty arranged and composed Macedonian folk dances, 12 jazz compositions, several concerts of classical music, twenty gramophone records, three CDs and a general impression that he is clarinet virtuoso – this is short CV of our most famous clarinetist Tale Ognenovski. For his music and his 87th birthday April 27, 2009 he received recognition "Jazz Musician of the Day: Tale Ognenovski", from editors of All About Jazz (www.allaboutjazz.com)  jazz music website  with announcement published at All About Jazz  website … http://news.allaboutjazz.com/news.php?id=34707#.Ur2mJ_RDuHM “I am very joyful for this recognition, "Jazz Musician of the Day", very happy, very delighted. It is a great prize, including any that I have gained during my career, including the top for me - award "October 11", the highest and the most prestigious national award in Republic of Macedonia” - tells us Tale Ognenovski at the meeting which we had at his home in Skopje ... Tale Ognenovski is constantly surrounded by the love of his son Stevan Ognenovski and daughter in law Margarita Ognenovska… At the request of the Director of Macedonian National Ensemble for Folk Dances and Songs "Tanec" Emanuel Chuchkov, the young clarinetist Tale Ognenovski, then the member of Police Wind Orchestra of Republic of Macedonia was loaned to the ensemble as strengthening his United States of America tour in 1956. Ensemble will hold 66 concerts and the tour began with show (20 minute concert) on one of the most popular television programmes in the United States, the Ford Foundation TV Programme "OMNIBUS", ", shown on  CBS (Columbia Broadcasting System) Television Network on January 22, 1956. This programme was seen by millions of Americans. – “A copy of this programme may be viewed free of charge on a videocassette at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. and would be good for us in Republic of Macedonia to have a copy” - says Stevan Ognenovski… So begins and concert activity of Tale Ognenovskii with Macedonian National Ensemble for Folk Dances and Songs "Tanec" and other companies and orchestras that allowed him to play at the most famous concert venues in the world. Until the seventies of the last century he performed with the orchestras of Macedonian Radio Television – The Folk Music Orchestra, the Authentic Orchestra of Folk Instruments, "Chalgii" Orchestra and in “Tancov” Orchestra. Meanwhile Tale Ognenovski established his own "Tale Ognenovski Orchestra", that continues to make music ... His dances are performed in Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, Great Britain, Denmark, Austria ... The most famous dances composed by Tale Ognenovski are: Brusnichko Oro, Kasapsko Oro, Kumovo Oro Chochek, Talevo Svadbarsko Oro, Bitolsko Oro, Resensko Oro, Pelistersko Oro, Bukovsko Svadbarsko Oro ... Two dances devoted to his wife Nevena Ognenovska: Nevenino Oro and Nevenino Lavchansko Oro…“We had a wonderful mother Nevena Ognenovska who took care not to feel his commitment and his absences due his concerts worldwide. She was a very supportive to my father in his career” - says his son Stevan Ognenovski … With the help of his family (his son Stevan Ognenovski and daughter in law Margarita Ognenovska) and the donors (Dimce (Jim) Cvetkovski,Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Macedonia, Komercijalna banka AD Skopje) who support his music Tale Ognenovski has released three CD albums: "Jazz, Macedonian Folk Dances and Classical Music" (Label: Independent Records, Catalog: IR 04542, 2001), “MOZART and OGNENOVSKI Clarinet Concertos” (Label: Independent Records, Catalog: IR 37223, 2006) and “Macedonian Clarinet Jazz Composed By Tale Ognenovski” (Label: Independent Records, Catalog: IR38824, 2008) …Tale Ognenovski was happiest during the  recording sessions of  last three CD albums with accompany by his son Stevan Ognenovski (drum) and grandsons Nikola Ognenovski and Kliment Ognenovski (reed pipes) ... My jazz compositions cannot be compared with any Macedonian folk dance. Some ask me whether in my jazz compositions are recognized Macedonia, and I say yes, Macedonia performed by Tale Ognenovski. The Jazz otherwise I practice since 1992 and my jazz is a Macedonian jazz which is different from others ... I've played all over the world. But I had played also for Josip Broz Tito, the former President of Yugoslavia every time when he visited Republic of Macedonia. Once I played for him in Brdo Castle near Kranj in Slovenia ..." - Article written by Rumena Ravanovska-Tulbevska, entitled: "World Jazz Musician of the Day Tale Ognenovski", Magazine “Tea Moderna”, July 29, 2009.

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

Before the start of Ensemble ‘Tanec’s’ concert in Massey Hall, Toronto, Canada an February 13, 1956, the Artistic Director of the Hall told professor Asparuh Hadzi Nikolov, the Artistic Director of the Ensemble, that it was a tradition that every performer at Massey Hall played the Canadian National Anthem at the beginning of every concert.  Professor Hadzi Nikolov replied that it would not be possible for the Ensemble to play the Canadian National Anthem right then, but that if they had been given a score for the Anthem the previous day, then it would have been played. Tale Ognenovski overheard this conversation and announced that the National Anthem would be played immediately from the score. He was given the score and, as he had a ‘B’ clarinet he began to play one tone with transposition above, with other members of the Ensemble, Ivan Terziev (flute), Nikola Galevski (violin), Aleksandar Sarievski (accordion), Todor Pavlovski Totka (guitar) and Reshad Muharedov (drum) accompanying him without transposition, which is an easier way to play. It was a highly successful rendition of the National Anthem and the concert was as spectacular as the other concerts in United States. Only the greatest instrumentalists in the world could play a composition like the Canadian National Anthem without any preparation in advance and with transposition one tone above.

“Tale Ognenovski added his own improvisations...the unique Sopska Poskocica earned an encore...

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 reed pipe soloist. 
Tale Ognenovski performed as a virtuoso clarinet and reed pipe (“kavalche”) soloist 
The majority of Ensemble ‘Tanec’s programme comprised Macedonian folk dances and songs, while the remainder being Serbian and Croatian dances and songs, and one Albanian dance. Tale Ognenovski played as virtuoso and clarinet and reed pipe (‘kavalche’) soloist for most parts of the programme, including the Macedonian folk dances ‘Bride’s Dance’ (‘Nevestinsko Oro’), ‘Chupurlika’, ‘Shopska Podripnuvachka’, ‘Kopachka’, ‘Shepherd’s Dance (‘Ovcharsko Oro’), ‘Soborski Igri’, other Macedonian songs, Serbian folk dances and songs and ‘Shote’, an Albanian folk dance. 

Macedonian National Ensemble for Folk Dances and Songs "Tanec" was the first dance company from Yugoslavia (the former Yugoslavia) to perform in America. The Ensemble arrived in New York City on January 20, 1956. The following day, on January 21, The New York Times newspaper ran an article entitled, “Crnogorka, Anyone? Yugoslav Dancing Troupe Shows How It Is Done”. It commented, “...Members of the Yugoslav National Folk Ballet dancing on board the liner Israel yesterday, after they arrived here... The forty-member group, which has attracted much attention in Europe, will give a recital in Carnegie Hall on Friday evening...The company will perform folk dances from Macedonia, Croatia, Herzegovina, Albania and Serbia in native costume.” 
Ensemble ‘Tanec’s North American tour was sponsored by International Artists in association with Charles E. Green and Lee V. Eastman. 
‘Tanec’s sixty-six performances in North America attracted much attention in the North American press.
Tale Ognenovski is the number one clarinetist
Musical genius Tale Ognenovski performed in the world-famous Carnegie Hall as clarinet and pipe virtuoso soloist. 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, 60-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, 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. 
Members of ‘Tanec’ who participated in the concerts in the United States and Canada from January 22 until April 12, 1956, were the following: Doncheva Todorka, Vishinova Radmila, Krstic Dushica, Stojanova Zora, Arsova Desanka, Peshic Olga, Shijakovic Vera, Markova Lenche, Stojanova Radica, Videc Blaga, Ilieva Vaska, Kolarova Ljubica, Dilevska Roska, Petrushevski Dragan, Sarievski Aleksandar, Matevski Dojchin, Dobeski Krsto, Kolarovski Atanas, Livrinski Stanko, Mihajlovski Mihajlo, Cherepovski Trpe, Eftimovski Doncho, Vishinski Stanimir, Micevski Cvetko, Todevski Spase, Georgievski Stevo, Atanasovski Pece, Etemov Kemal, Georgievski Dushko, Velevski Blazhe, Pavlovski Todor, Jusufov Muharem Reshat, Terziev Ivan, Galevski Nikolaj, Hristovski Jonche, Ognenovski Tale and Tasevski Slave.

The group had arrived in New York by boat on January 20, and will leave New York by plane on April 21. During their very successful tour in America, Ensemble ‘Tanec’ visited the most important cultural and industrial centres: New York City, Chicago, Detroit, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Saint Louis, Philadelphia, and Boston, and one concert was performed in Toronto, Canada. During the 84-day journey Ensemble ‘Tanec’ travelled ten thousand kilometres and gave 70 concerts. The American press described them as a Great Cultural Event.

In 2000 Tale Ognenovski formed a quartet with his son Stevan Ognenovski (a drummer) and grandsons Nikola Ognenovski (a reed piper) and Kliment Ognenovski (a reed piper).
He performed and recorded with them on three CD albums: "Jazz, Macedonian Folk Dances and Classical Music" (Label: Independent Records, Catalog: IR 04542, 2001), “MOZART and OGNENOVSKI Clarinet Concertos” (Label: Independent Records, Catalog: IR 37223, 2006) and “Macedonian Clarinet Jazz Composed By Tale Ognenovski” (Label: Independent Records, Catalog: IR38824, 2008). Three CD's were produced by Tale Ognenovski and Stevan Ognenovski.
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.
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)…
