Motivi (Emil Tabakov) performed by Christine Hoock

Audio only, but a great brisk version of Motivi with all the power and excitement in it. The quicker versions, like this one, capture some of the elements borrowed from Bulgarian folk singing. In particular, the shouts or high pitched slides come out in an energetic way.

Christine Hoock’s website (in German and English) lists a number of recordings with contemporary composers and interesting music as well.
