The International Piano Duo Federation New York - Tokyo, acknowledged Aglika Genova and Liuben Dimitrov as "the most successful young piano duo in the world" as a result of its complex worldwide statistics. For the five years since its foundation at the end of 1995 the Duo won all the major prestigious international piano-duo contests: Murray Dranoff Two-Piano Competition (Miami, USA), ARD Music Competition (Munich, Germany), Two-Piano Competition Tokyo (Japan), Bellini Music Competition (Caltanissetta, Italy), Premio V. Bucchi Music Competition (Rome, Italy).

Aglika Genova and Liuben Dimitrov were born in Bulgaria. Both graduated in piano from the Pancho Vladigerov State Academy of Music in Sofia. They had post-graduate master classes with the great Russian pianist Prof. Vladimir Krainev in Hanover (Germany), following his personal invitation. It was there that the idea of establishing the duo was born. Currently they live in Germany and they give concerts on four-handed piano and two grand pianos all over the world. The Genova & Dimitrov Piano Duo has performed to public and critical acclaim at such renowned international events as the festivals in Ludwigsburg, Schwetzingen, Schleswig-Holstein, Rheingau, "Heidelberg Spring" (Germany), in Athens (Greece), in Miami and Southampton (USA), etc. They have also made a number of radio- and TV recordings in the USA, Japan, Australia, Germany, and Bulgaria.

The present release includes works of composers from the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. The programme is indicative of the wide range of the duo's repertoire, as well as of their ambition to present to the listeners popular yet rarely performed works.
