This is another CD of the series The Concertmasters, performed by famous Bulgarian musicians – concertmasters of leading orchestras. The recordings have been made at concerts, organised by Classic FM Radio. Music lovers already have the first CD of this series of the violinist Svetlin Roussev. The present release features a live performance of another world-famous violin player – Mila Georgieva.

Born into a family of musicians, Mila Georgieva began playing the violin at the age of four. In her pre-teen years she gained international fame by winning important prizes in competitions in Italy, the Czech Republic and Bulgaria. Mila Georgieva studied with Dorothy De Lay and Cho-Liang Lin at the Juilliard School in New York and with Yfrah Neaman at the Guildhall School in London. As soloist she has performed with renowned orchestras and conductors. She participates at summer festivals and gives solo concerts throughout the world, and since 2003-2004, Mila Georgieva has been the concertmaster of the Symphony Orchestra of Radio Stuttgart.

The conductor Martin Panteleev was also born in Sofia and he also began his music education by studying the violin with Angelina Atanassova. In 1994 he completed masterclass with Prof. Yfrah Neaman in Mainz, Germany. In 1995 he entered the Pancho Vladigerov State Music Academy in Sofia and in 1997 he completed a masterclass in violin with Prof. Zachar Bron in Hamburg, Germany.

He is equally successful both as a violinist and a conductor and gives concerts throughout Europe, Asia and the USA.

It was successful at a number of venues like the March Music Days International Festival in Rousse, the European Music Festival in Sofia, Varna Summer, at concerts in Bulgaria and abroad.
