Biography. Tale Ognenovski is one of the greatest instrumentalists and composers in the world of music. He made the connection between Oriental and Western Music. He has composed and arranged 300 Macedonian folk dances, one classical concert "Tale Ognenovski Clarinet Concerto No.1" and a number of jazz compositions. Some of his compositions have been recorded on 11 LPs, 11 cassettes, 10 gramophone records, and one videotape (RTB, Jugoton, RTS, and MRT). 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, Austria and others. 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. Legendary artist Tale Ognenovski performed as clarinet and reed pipe soloist in Folk Dances in the world-famous Carnegie Hall, a symbol of artistic excellence, on January 27, 1956. There, he bewitched the audience with his performances as clarinet and reed pipe virtuoso soloist. One of fourth CDs of Tale Ognenovski is 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.
