Dear Friends,

Ani Levy is inviting all music fans to the Yarilo Contemporary Music Society’s new Spring Concert Season with the following three concerts:

SATURDAY, MARCH 30th at 8:00pm at Pyatt Music Hall, Vancouver- AN EVENING OF ELEGANCE IN PARIS- an elegant musical stroll through the streets of turn-of-the-century Paris with the music of Erik Satie, Claude Debussy”, and Francis Poulenc.
The program also includes the genius Sonata for Violin by the Bulgarian composer, Liubomir Pipkov, which he wrote in Paris. With this music piece, the composer and the Bulgarian folklore entered the world music scene for the first time. (Early Bird tickets – until Mar 15th)


SATURDAY, APRIL 13th at 2:00pm at Old Orchard Hall, Port Moody
Back by Popular Demand for the Tri-Cities residents– P. I. Tchaikovsky’s great masterpiece- 1881 Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano in A Minor, Op. 50, written in memory of his friend, Nikolai Rubinstein. (Early Birds ticket – until March 30th)

SATURDAY, June 22nd at 2:00pm at ANNEX Theatre, Vancouver- “BEFORE AND BEYOND TIME – music on the boundary of two millennia”.
The concert will present the artistry of the Bulgarian composer Gheorghi Arnaoudov for the first time in Canada. The composer will arrive directly from Bulgaria especially for this concert.

This is what the Western music critics say about the composer:
“Bulgarian composer Gheorghi Arnaoudov speaks a musical language that combines the traditions of European modernism – Western and Eastern – with a spiritualism and aesthetic mysticism that comes from Eastern traditions. This is music of stasis, a kind of intense minimalism that tells no conventional stories but rather meditates on an idea.
His vital use of a variety of literary sources, aesthetic ideas, and collaborations with other art forms distinguish his music in today’s European concert culture. These works, from Bulgaria’s most cosmopolitan compositional voice at the height of his powers, musically capture the freedom of flight and engage in timeless conversations with poets, philosophers, and folk traditions across the ages.”- Eric Salzman, New York

There will be a meet and greet session with the composer after the concert over snacks and a glass of wine.
