Emil Tabakov is Bulgaria’s most important composer to date. His reputation as conductor and composer has transcended upon borders into the world’s stage given his gift for straightforward, energetic compositions. His favorite genres are both symphony (eight until now) and concertos: one for each of 7 instruments and showcasing unusual soloists like double bass and viola. His Piano Concerto was commissioned by Ankara’s Rotary Club to celebrate the 2200th Anniversary of the Turkish Army, whose first company is said to be founded in year 209 BCE far away in the Mongol Steppes by the Xiongnu, a forefather to Hunnic and Mongol peoples as well. The music is filled with martial melodies and powerful rhythms that evoke the might and power of the Ottoman and Turkish armies which once whipped all the nations across the Middle East and the Balkans, and created terror among their Western neighbors.

Emil Tabakov es el compositor más importante de Bulgaria hasta el día de hoy. Su reputación como compositor y director ha trascendido las fronteras dado su don por las melodías directas y las creaciones energéticas. Sus géneros favoritos son la sinfonía (de las cuales ha escrito ocho hasta ahora) y el concierto: de los que ha escrito uno para cada siete instrumentos diferentes e incluso dando voz a solistas poco usuales como el contrabajo y la viola. Su Concierto para Piano fue una comisión del Club de Rotarios de Ankara para celebrar el Aniversario 2200 del Ejército Turco, cuya primera compañía habría sido fundada en el año 209 AC en las lejanas estepas mongolas por los Xiongnu, un pueblo que es ancestro igualmente de hunos y mongoles. La música está conformada por melodías marciales y poderosos ritmos que evocan la grandeza y el poder de los ejércitos Turcos Otomanos que alguna vez conquistaron todas las naciones de Medio Oriente y los Balcanes e hicieron temblar a sus vecinos en Occidente.
