Bulgarian-American Center Madara presents an exciting selection of modern works for violin and piano influenced and inspired by Bulgarian folk music. Its assymetrical rhythms are unique to the region and lend the music its dance character. Defined by Hungarian composer and ethnomusicologist Bela Bartok as Bulgarian Rhythms they are used in the works of many contemporary composers. Vladigerov, Leviev, and Cohen all wrote the pieces presented in this program during their stay in Bulgaria. The young artists Tania Stavreva, piano & Teodora Dimitrova, violin (The TNT Duo) will bring an hour of their Bulgarian musical heritage to The Big Apple. The program will feature also three New York premieres:
