Victor Chuchkov in the concert Italian masters

Opera Plovdiv presents the concert Italian Masters with the special participation of Prof. Victor Chuchkov.

A great celebration of Italian music in the fine frames of the Little Night Music form. The Virtuosos of Opera Plovdiv and the pianist Victor Chuchkov will answer the questions of who is the grandfather of Puccini, has Rossini composed only operas and how many composers with the name Marcello do we know. Finally - a Christmas greeting from the 17th century.

Kristian Jelev Quartet Live

Kristian Jelev - drums
Nikolay Karageorgiev - guitar
Miroslav Turiiski - piano
Alexander Lekov - bass

The participants in this quartet are already well-known on the jazz scene in Bulgaria, but the reason for their gathering is a little different this time.

The quartet is a long-standing idea that now finds its time for realization. Created and initiated by Kristian Jelev, whose compositions are in the program, with the only idea of music as he sees and feels it, in which everyone has the freedom to "speak" with their own "voice". Perhaps not just jazz, but something where everyone would find a little something for themselves.
