Two young and talented Bulgarian performers have chosen for their first album released in Bulgaria a program, which includes Bulgarian authors only. The composers Pancho Vladigerov, Parashkev Hadjiev and Vesselin Stoyanov are among the classics of Bulgarian musical heritage. Their works are much admired by music lovers, and performers often include them in their repertoire. A lot of courage is required for a young performer to record them, as they have been performed and recorded by the greatest Bulgarian musicians, and appreciators of the three composers are well-acquainted with the various interpretations of these works. The violinist Yana Burova and the pianist Vesselina Tckakarova answer this challenge in an amazing way. 
Yana Burova and Vesselina Tchakarova studied at secondary music schools in Varna and Sofia, respectively, and after that furthered their education at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London. In 2002 Yana Burova completed her studies as a scholarship student of the Bulgarian virtuoso Vasko Vassilev at London’s Trinity College of Music. In 2001 Vesselina Tchakarova made her London solo recital debut. The following year she appeared as soloist with Vox Aurae orchestra in Brescia, Italy under Giancarlo De Lorenzo.
Yana Burova has attended master classes of Mincho Minchev, Georgy Pauk and Maxim Vengerov, and Vesselina Tchakarova has participated in master classes with Leslie Howard, Paul Roberts and Joan Havill. Presently, both live in the UK.
