CD Review from the Danish Guitar Magazine , (november 2014):

"I have previously praised this duo highly, and I am happy to do so again. They possess an outstanding musical and technical level. Just the mere fact that they deliver one flawless CD after the other withoout losing musicality and joy of performing is very unusual.
This CD is a mixture of previous recordings – live and from studio.
All of the music is composed by Atanas Ourkouzounov and published on Dobberman-Yppan (Canada).
The first piece ”Sonatina” (1999) has 3 movements: A rythmically swinging Bulgarian dance followed by a slow movement ”Comme un chant”. The guitar and the flute are perfectly balanced: Thin, airy tones from the flute blended with crystal clear harmonics from the guitar. To finish, we get a joyful and charming little Serbian rondo. Great!

The title piece ”Bul-Bop”, composed in 2009, is in a slighty more modern style. We har dynamic rythms - and the flute really sings. After this follows a cute little suite ”Three East Tales”, composed 2009-2010. It is delightfully melodious - containing sounds and rythms from Eastern Europe.
”4 Legendes” (a 4 movement piece) also has folcloristic roots and posseses a touch of humor.
”Babini Devinti” from 2012 is a suite in 5 movements written in a modern tonal language. Lively, rythmically dynamic movements interchange with slow, dreamy movements characterized by tonal density and variety.
We get plenty of airy sounds from the flute and many timbral effects on the guitar: Harmonics, pizzicato, playing with the left hand alone, etc.
”Labyrinthes” in 3 movements starts off with a cadenza for guitar, followed by an interlude for the flute, in which we hear both singing and blowing from the flute. To finish, the two soloists join each other in a virtuoso bursting toccata.
This CD presents world class conermporary chamber music. Atanas's music bursts joyfully and has a nice timbre, but the magic decreases upon hearing the entire CD.
So the advice is: Enjoy it bit by bit – or even better: See the duo live!
The CD can be obtained from Dobberman-Yppan."

CD Review from the Danish Guitar Magazine , (january 2014):

Anmeldelse af CDen Something else fra Guitaren januar 2014

"This is the second live CD from this fantastic duo that it is my pleasure to review. I may repeat myself in this review since certainly the same kind of superlatives come to the mind.

It is world class duo playing! As I see it, Atanas is one of the finest guitarists on today's international guitar scene. His superb technique is totally in the favour of the music, and he is one of the most technically impeccable guitarists I have ever heard. However, at no point do we feel that the perfectionism comes in the way of the artistry. This is seldomly seen in the world of guitarists.

I am not qualified to judge Mie Ogura's qualities as a flutist, but what I can undoubtedly confirm is that she plays handsomely, sensitively, dramatically – and certainly always ”to the limit”.... Together they form a perfect unit. The recording was made by Leif Hesselberg – the result is a very handsome and natural sound.

The first tracks on the CD are 3 evergreens by George Gershwin: ”I Love You Porgy”, ”The Man I Love” and ”I Got Rythm”. They all produce an immense joy for the ear – and the swung feeling towards the end of the latter piece is a true delight.

Then follow Atanas's own composition ”Babini devetini” - a modern piece in 5 short movements - using – at first - a tonal language very much based on the different options of tone production of the instrument – followed by enticing rythmic sections using special effects on the flute as well as on the guitar.

Then follow 2 pieces by Claude Debussy: The evocative flute solo ”Syrinx” after which the guitar rejoins the flute in ”La plus que lente”. To follow, we are invited on a trip to Spain through Chick Corea's ”Crystal Silence”.

Mie Ogura's composition ”Agadez” is also rhythmically virtuosic, presenting considerable challenges for the flutist as well as for the guitarist – we are dealing with a tonal universe clearly inspired by the South American music. Atanas Ourkouzounov's work ”Extension” is another piece in which the rendition of brilliant and advanced rhytms hits the ear, but this time round the listener's mind travels to Eastern Europe – given the melodic and harmonic language.

The following piece, Bela Bartok's beautiful-sounding miniature ”Sonatine” is a delightful, humoristic item and to close the party, we get ”African Rondo” - composed by the duo members in conjunction. As the title suggests, the source of inspiration is African music.

Overall a marvellous journey throughout the world in the company of a duo mastering just about all styles: jazz, classical, contemporary and folklore. "
