    The symmetry of jazz, folk and classical language of this compelling live document is totally natural.”

    Dimitar’s passion for playing solo piano has always been persistent. At the age of 17 he gave his first concert and since then, he has been playing solo piano on different occasions. He has given solo concerts in Bulgaria, the Netherlands, Austria as well as at the Montreux Jazz Solo Piano Competition, Switzerland.

    His latest album Solo in Bonn is a live registration of his concert at Beethoven’s haus in November 2018. A lyrical and virtuosic rendition of free improvisations and original compositions based on folkore themes.

    STAMPS FROM BULGARIA

    His debut solo piano CD ‘Stamps from Bulgaria’ (2006) marks the begining of series of compositions based on folklore songs and dances. The CD was recorded in Angelika Kauffmann Saal, Schwarzenberg, Austria, May 2006.

    SPECIALIS

    In April 2009 at the opening of ppIANISSIMO Festival for contemporary piano music in Sofia Bulgaria, Dimitar presented his solo piano program ‘Specialis’.

    This program is dedicated to the secrets of creation, love, self-reflection, communication. It is a journey without the safety belt. It is a borderline between composition and improvisation. It is control vs. freedom.

    Based on a short monophonic serial piece, which I wrote per accident few years ago as an assignment for my composition study, It took a while before I decided to develop that idea further. This resulted as “Specialis” fluctuating composition with somewhat of a light motif.
