  • Brass Stories

    Brass Stories online project is a concept inspired by present and history of the Bulgarian brass music traditions which includes popular and almost unknown composers, conductors, performing artists, orchestras and ensembles.

    During the school term of 2021 / 2022 our team will present you a series of interactive articles, interviews and music analysis in 4 separate themes:
      Bulgarian symphony and chamber music composers of different generations back to the end of the 19th century till today - all of them inspired by brass instruments;

      Bulgarian performing artists and conductors, famous both in the country and abroad.;

      The next generation of stars in the Bulgarian brass music - their ambitions to popularise classical and contemporary Bulgarian music and to preserve our brass orchestras’ heritage;

      Foreign brass performers and teachers, invited by the Brass Perspectives Association for master classes and other innovative educational structures and initiatives.

    The project is supported by the National Fund of Culture of the Republic of Bulgaria.
