This third in succession CD of kaval-player Theodosii Spassov, an unusual phenomenon in the music-performing art, is an emanation of love for music and improvisation. At the same time, the term bratimene means spiritual closeness between people of common souls, tastes, moral and aesthetic values. That is why the virtuoso kaval-player and improviser has made a selection of pieces recorded between 1983 and 1998, on different occasions, with different friends from the circle of musicians, poets and artists to which he has always belonged. Some of them are his own compositions that have made him famous. The release presents a unique fusion of folk and jazz music, of bright musical personalities, who perform with an unmatched feeling for ensemble. These are 13 brilliant compositions and performances that bring real aesthetic joy and satisfaction.
