The music of multi-award-winning contemporary classical composer, Michael Bakrnčev has always been critically acclaimed, and for a very good reason. Delivering a gorgeous sound that takes the listener on a completed musical journey, his compositions are filled with exotic rhythmic and sublime melodic beauty, creating a lavish space that never fails to impress.
Recently, he released a gorgeous composition that was dedicated to his wife titled ‘Calm’, a brilliant piece that was originally performed on one of the most evocative of times, their wedding day. Musically, it was a bold, romantic piece that artfully contrasts the fast-paced and wonderfully jovial Macedonian wedding dance music that was performed for most of the evening.
His latest composition, ‘Flight’ sees Michael teaming up with the Australian Youth Orchestra, conducted by Paul Stanhope, to deliver one of his most captivating compositions to date. Composed in his earliest years of orchestral composition writing, the new work is undeniable proof of Michael’s abilities, creating a gorgeous and utterly riveting soundscape that will have you hooked from the offset.
Available now on all official platforms, ‘Flight’ is contemporary orchestration at its most emotive and brilliant, harnessing a brilliant live energy from the Australian Youth Orchestra, and blending it perfectly with Michael’s penchant for bold, evocative writing.
To date, Michael’s music has been described as “having a Pärtian simplicity made beautifully vulnerable” by MODART, while Limelight was left astounded saying, “I was left wanting more, definitely the mark of a mature composer”.
Alongside his critical acclaim, Michael has also been commissioned by eminent arts organisations including the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, the Southern Cross Soloists, Pianist Alex Raineri, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Syzygy Ensemble, Plexus Ensemble, University of Southern Queensland, and the Macedonian Philharmonic.
