The program will also include compositions by Jewish composers: Bloch, Copland, Gershwin, Mendelssohn, Saint Saëns and Wieniawski. Compositions by the award-winning Bulgarian composer G. Andreev, who composed Varna International’s A Melancholy Beauty, will be featured, with Andreev being the soloist performing on a traditional Bulgarian folk instrument.
