The CD of the prominent Bulgarian composer Alexander Yossifov comprises works for piano duos - an area in which he presents himself with original ideas. After the success of his opuses for two pianos and four-handed piano, he turned to experimenting with bigger keyboard formations. This resulted in works such as the Symphony Concertante for two piano duos and orchestra of 24 pianos (24 pianists or respectively 48 hands) which has attracted the attention of the Japanese audiences and musical critics alike. The composition was unanimously defined as a unique musical piece of the 20th century. Yossifov, who is the author of operas, ballets, music for children, symphonies and instrumental pieces (more than 1200 in number) ceaselessly seeks to give new meaning through innovative expressive devices and impressive timbre nuances. A creative artist of rich experience and mastery of constructing the musical form, he manages to find the balance between homogeneous instruments - the pianos, as well as between strings and a keyboard duo. In the present recording one can hear the wonderful Variations for Four-Handed Piano based on the well-known Bulgarian National-Revival song "Hubava si moya goro". In the Ballad for Two Four-Handed Pianos the author interweaves with virtuosity Bulgarian national rhythms and characteristic elements from the Japanese music (originally the piece was created for the Japanese duo Kodama and duo Ganevs). The large-scaled composition Concerto for Four-Handed Piano, String Orchestra and Percussion, brings eloquent evidence to Yossifov's remarkable melodic and rhythmic invention.

The names of a number of young composers have won recognition during the last years of the 20th century. Their works bring a new trend to contemporary Bulgarian music. They introduce new ideas, interesting creative concepts and a variety of expressive means. A musician that is prominent for that period is Krassimir Taskov. He is a composer, a brilliant piano performer and a pedagogue (since 2002 he has been a professor at the Prof. Pancho Vladigerov State Music Academy in Sofia).
He concertized extensively as a student and received prizes at international piano competitions in Moscow (Tchaikovsky, 1978) and Spain (Santander, 1978). After completing degrees in piano (1981) and composition (1984), he participated in a series of international seminars for composers organized by UNESCO in Bulgaria and Holland and attended the composition classes of Ton de Leeuw and Theo Loevendie (Holland), Anatol Vieru (Romania), Andrei Eshpai (Russia), Marin Goleminov and Dimiter Hristov (Bulgaria).
His ongoing performance activity includes collaborations with chamber ensembles and distinguished Bulgarian musicians as Lydia Oshavkova, Anatoli Krastev, Lyubomir Dinolov, Dimiter Tsanev, Ani Atanassova, etc. His musical partnership of over fifteen years with pianist Velislava Georgieva has been especially intensive.
Along with his performing and teaching activity, Krassimir Taskov has also composed a large number of works: for symphonic orchestra, chamber music, concertos for different instruments, piano pieces, works for two pianos, various vocal and choral works, an opera-musical. A great number of his works have won awards at prestigious international and national competitions and are being performed in Germany, Japan, France, Italy, Russia, the USA, etc. The great Bulgarian composer and conductor Vassil Kazandjiev refers to his music as being "particularly expressive and strongly impacting".
