The forth edition of the Arbanasi Summer Music will be held from 7 to 11 August 2013. Traditionally, all concerts are set in the “St. Archangels Michael and Gabriel” Church. Visitors will be able to enjoy fine pieces of classical chamber music performed by international musicians in the unique acoustics of the church.
The festival is organised after an initiative of the Regional Historical Museum in Veliko Tarnovo and supports the candidacy of Veliko Tarnovo for European Cultural Capital 2019.
Musicians who will perform at the summer concerts are: David Kuigal (viola), Julita Fasseva (bass), Eric Speller (oboe), Yf Bourry (oboe), Dimitri Mestdag (cor anglais) and the American cellist Raphael Bell, who led the Royal Flemish Philharmonic Orchestra of Belgium.
Classical pieces by Beethoven, Gordon Jacob, Jacques Ibert, Mozart, Dvorak, Jan Kustir and Benjamin Britten will be perfomed during the evening concerts.
