2012 Viktor ValkovThe Bulgarian pianist Viktor Valkov has performed as soloist, chamber musician, and recitalist in Germany, Italy, Bulgaria, the United States, and Japan. In 2009 he gave his Carnegie Hall debut with his long- time friend and chamber music collaborator cellist Lachezar Kostov. He studied with Jerome Lowenthal and Matti Raekallio at the Juilliard School and is currently pursuing a Doctoral Degree at Houston’s Rice University with Jon Kimura Parker. In the past he has also worked with Michael Roll at the Folkwang Hochschule in Essen, Germany. Viktor Valkov has always had a great interest in more obscure piano and chamber music repertoire, often including in his recital programs composers such as Alkan, Dohnányi, Busoni and Dimiter Nenov. In 2011 NAXOS issued his recording with Lachezar Kostov of the entire music for cello and piano by Nikolay Roslavets.

In his own words…

“Playing classical music might easily be the most interesting thing one can ever get involved in!”
