In 2024, the Off the Beaten Path Festival will expand its reach with an event in Dobrinishte in addition to concerts in Gotse Delchev and Kovachevitsa.
After the success of the new chamber work Stone Trail, which Dobrinka Tabakova composed for us in 2023, our programs will focus on creating new works, especially for the musicians of the festival and their world premieres in Bulgaria. Each premiere performance will be combined with a carefully curated program of classical chamber works.
The composers we'll work with this summer are Lora Al Ahmad, Peter Kerkelov, and Svetlina Hristov. Our special guest artists will be Alexander Fitterstein, clarinet, and Yosuke Kawasaki, violin, who will perform in Bulgaria for the first time.
Stay tuned for more news in early 2024!
