•  MIROSLAV GEORGIEV'S RESUME

    Miroslav Georgiev was born in Sofia, Bulgaria in 1979. He holds master’s degree in piano performance and orchestra conducting from the National Academy of Music (Sofia, Bulgaria) and another master’s in piano performance from the USF School of Music (Florida, USA). His contact with teachers and artists from both Eastern and Western musical traditions has given him a complex, in-depth understanding of piano technique and interpretation. In the same time, his vast experience in different areas of music (chamber music, orquestra conducting, accompanying and even singing) allows him to have an universal and complex approach to all musical genres and epoques.

    Mr. Georgiev is prizewinner in numerous national and international competitions (“Alber Roussel” - Sofia; “Carl Filtch” - Sibiu; “D. Nenov” - Razgrad and others). He has performed with orchestras in Bulgaria and US (including the Florida Orchestra), both as soloist and conductor. Mr. Georgiev has participated in various festivals in Bulgaria, Austria and Brazil (“Sofia Music Weeks”, “Viennese Festival Weeks”, Sozopol’s “Apolonia”, Campos do Jordao's Winter Festival). Miroslav Georgiev maintains an active performance career both as soloist and chamber musician. He has appeared at numerous venues in Bulgaria, Austria, France, US and Brazil, including a solo recital at the Debussy Museum in Paris.

    His solo and chamber performances and recordings, together with his accompanying work for different instruments, voice and dance, have earned him the recognition of both audiences and critics in Europe, USA and Brazil.

    Mr. Georgiev’s repertoire is extensive and covers all musical époques and genres from pre-classic to contemporary music, including some of the greatest masterpieces written for the instrument, such as Ravel's 'Gaspard de la nuit', Balakiriev's 'Islamei', Mussorgsky's 'Pictures at an exhibition' and Tchaikovsky's Concerto for piano and orchestra no.1.

    In 2013 Mr. Georgiev started developing skills as a programmer in Python. He has already accomplished several major projects, both as part of his education and as separate challenges. He has experience with Interactive programming in Python and SQL databases.

    Currently mr.Georgiev lives and works in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He appears regularly on the stages of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Brasilia and other cities, performing solo and chamber recitals with renowned musicians.
