The Concert :

 

The "Paradise lost" is often called the time, when our talented musicians Stoimen Peev, Teodora Atanasova and Veneta Neynska will bring the audience. La Belle Epoque or the "Beautiful Epoch," is the time of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, which is full of the spirit of positivism, carelessness, and beauty. The subtle nuances and beautiful music by the best French composers will liven up in this journey, which our artists have prepared for you. Debussy's Moonlight, Swan from Saint-Saens's Carnival of Animals, Ravel's Gypsy, and many more pearls from Massenet, Satie, Franck and Faure's work will come to life and immerse you in this irretrievably wasted time.
