Yassen Vodenitcharov takes us again into his world of paintings, timbres, unusual harmonies and rhythms. A graduate of two national conservatories – in Bulgaria and in France, the composer creates his unique style. Through his works he collaborates with prominent musicians, who often provoke him and some of his pieces have been created especially for them (For example, the work Trajectories of Silence was composed for the prominent French mandolin player Florentino Calvo and for the Quartet Estudiantina).
In this programme, he remains true to his style, which we know from the previous releases of Gega New: Magic Pieces, Compositions, Celestial Mechanics. His works are full of imagery, inspired by a picture or a verse, by the achievement of human thought, or by mythology or some deep personal experience..
• The picture in the cover were painted by Yuri Vodenitcharov, the son of Yassen Vodenitcharov.
