    • Artist for one night? Why not

      Artist for one night? Why not

      The entrepreneurial family of Dani and Vladislav Zaharievi offers a form of entertainment they've called: Painting and wine for relaxation after the working day.

      The atmosphere is pleasant, and the location is convenient. Their studio is situated at 20 Galileo Galilei St in Sofia. A quality drink sparkles in an elegant glass next to the easel and the visitors decide on their own in what company they can spend a few hours in an atmosphere of creativity and without any tension. The value added for the client is that at the end of the evening they leave the place with a painting drawn by themselves.

      Virtuoso pianist Evgeny Kissin gives a recital in Sofia

      Musical phenomenon Evgeny Kissin will take part in the new season of the Sofia Philharmonic. On 11 March, in Bulgaria Hall, the outstanding pianist will give a recital of works by Berg, Gershwin, Khrennikov and Chopin. The programme's idea was born during the isolation last year, which the musician spent in Prague. The contrasting at first glance works are united by the motif of love, says Kissin. “I'm an omnivorous person, there's a lot of music I love, so I just hope for one thing: live long enough to have time to play it all.”
