We all love songs, and in the first days of the new year we will delight our audience with a Song Pillow Concert. However, it turns out that the song can be performed not only by the human voice, but also by musical instruments such as the piano, cello and clarinet. Pianist Veneta Neynska, soprano Doroteya Doroteeva, clarinetist Pavel Stoychev, and the young cellists with numerous international awards Syon and Nauma Najman have prepared the most melodious and beautiful excerpts from the world classics and song repertoire.
Get ready for an exciting musical journey – from classic through romanticism all the way to Bulgarian music.
The medal for the most obedient parent will again be deliciously backed up with a box of brownies from Vanilla Kitchen, and an hour before each concert, the musical atelier of Music Play teaching studio will take place, where young fans of classical music will be able to learn more about the blockflute.
Our traditional Christmas concert this year will go beyond the classics and enter the depths of jazz. Popular Christmas songs and dance jazz improvisations will make us dive together into the atmosphere of the Christmas spirit. This year’s surprise will be the charming and always smiling jazz singer with a wonderful voice Marina Dragomiretskaya and her band of gentlemen: Samuel Eftimov – piano, Todor Bakardzhiev – trumpet and Isaac Benbasat – drums. Their mastery and artistic energy are a sure source of innumerable unforgettable emotions for their excited audience.
One hour before every Christmas Jazz Pillow Concert the young jazz admirers canenjoy the Music atelier of our friends from the Music Play teaching studio. The Medal for the best well-behaved parent will be awarded with a special prize – a whole box of tempting brownies from Vanilla Kitchen.
For ten years, the Pillow Concerts have attracted new fans to the fairytale world of classical music. The first and most beloved family music events take pride in the lack of age restrictions and proudly welcome even the youngest visitors, curious to look into the diversity and beauty that hides behind great art. In the first indoor concert of the new season, we will tell the exciting story of Clara and Robert Schumann, who combine family life (with eight children!), composing, performing and fulfilling participation in society. The reason for choosing the theme is the 200th anniversary of Clara’s birth – the most famous female composer of Romanticism, who left behind some amazing works in various genres. True to their belief that music is best understood when performed in the best possible way, we pride ourselves on the fact that the musicians for the upcoming concert are among the most brilliant young talents of Bulgaria, and not only.
The violinists in the piano quintet will rotate their places behind the first and second music stands, because Sancar Sapaev and Yana Zelenogorska prefer to abandon the hierarchy in their music-making and maintain the partnership principles they apply well enough in life off the stage. Stefania Yankova is the leader of the viola group in the BNR Symphony Orchestra, and in the Fantastic Pillow Concert she will alternate her role as a chamber musician with a solo performer. Atanas Krastev is the true star among cellists of his generation on the Bulgarian stage, and his concert schedule is so busy that it is a real miracle to welcome him among our musical pillows. The ruler of the grand piano – pianist Veneta Neynska – is well known to our audience as the creator, often presenter and active organizer of all Pillow Concerts.
