"...The young musicians demonstrated outstanding liability, and in the same time a remarkable freedom to interpret. They did it with a smile, and the audience held the breath from their exquisite style. The Plovdiv's audience dot them out four times for an encore - absolutely deserved. When 20 minutes applause subsided, the vibrations of music continued to feel created genuinely, exciting and professionally by maestro Ventseslas Nikolov and his young virtuosos."

Contrasts

Chamber ensemble "Silhouettes" presented a cycle of two concerts with works from the classical chamber music repertoire, united under the title "Contrasts".

The essential idea in the programs are the contrasts - between music works of various styles, between classics and modernity, between Bulgarian and European music. The aim of Ensemble "Silhouettes" is also to emphasize the worthy place of the Bulgarian composers in the European musical culture. The selection of the pieces from German, French and Bulgarian classical music of the ХХ century aims to show the interrelationship and the influence between them. A highlight in the program of the first concert is the Trio for violin, violoncello and piano from Konstantin Iliev, which was performed for the first time in Chamber hall "Bulgaria" on 15th March, 1978. The musicians of Ensemble "Silhouettes" dedicate the first of the two concerts to the 90th anniversary of the birth of the great Bulgarian composer and long-standing conductor of Sofia Philharmonic. The Trio for violin, violoncello and piano from Lubomir Pipkov is included in the second concert program. Not only this is a piece with a great musical value, but it has its historical meaning as the first Bulgarian trio.

The concerts from cycle "Contrasts" took place on 9 March and 12 April 2014 in Chamber Hall „Bulgaria” with the financial support of National fund "Culture" and National Institute "Sofia Philharmony".

Programme 1: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Konstantin Iliev, Vassil Kazandjiev, Johannes Brahms

Programme 2: Darius Milhaud, Ljubomir Pipkov, Bohuslav Martinu, Maurice Ravel
