Transcription for piano and voice by Todor Petrov.

Pianist Todor Petrov and mezzo-soprano Adriana Grekova, both of them performers with noteworthy career on the European music venues, offer a programme with original versions of Spanish musical masterpieces and rarely performed piano works by renaissance and baroque composers. The unifying link of this project is the all-embracing Spanish musical folklore, which inspired the work of two titans of 20 century Spanish culture composer Manuel de Falla and poet Federico Garcia Lorca. The original version for piano and mezzo-soprano of Manuel de Fallas world-famous ballet El Amor brujo (The Bewitched Love) will be performed for the first time in Bulgaria music, born out of the original flamenco tradition. Trece canciones espanolas antiguas 13 old Spanish folk songs from the period 13 15 century, compiled and processed by Federico Garcia Lorca, will be premiered in the special transcript for piano and voice by Todor Petrov. An elegant touch in the concert programme are the piano miniatures by some representatives of the Spanish renaissance and baroque culture such as Juan Bermudo, Antonio de Cabezon, Juan de Cabanillas, Joaquin Martinez de Oxinagas, etc.
