Seasong II – World Premiere, Varna Symphony Orchestra, conducted by the composer
Martin Georgiev conducted the world premiere of his orchestral work Seasong II with the Varna State Opera Symphony Orchestra at the Varna Opera House, Varna, Bulgaria, on 25/03/2016 at a festive concert dedicated to the Annunciation of Theotokos. The concert opened with a blessing by His Eminence Metropolitan Ioan of Varna and Great Preslav, Bulgarian Orthodox Church, who offered a brief homily for the occasion. The world premiere was followed by Mozart’s Concerto for Two Pianos K365 with piano duo Deacon Ljubomir and Antonia Georgiev (Martin’s brother and sister-in-law) and Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater with Daniela Dimova, Soprano, and Boika Vassileva, Mezzo Soprano.
Seasong II is a sequel to Georgiev’s orchestral miniature A Seasong commissioned by the Royal Academy of Music, London, in memory of Sir Henry Wood and premiered by the Royal Academy Symphony Orchestra conducted by the composer in 2011.
