Jazz Around the World – 23 April – Bulgaria

Welcome to Bulgaria. Today we visit with pianist Milcho Leviev. The list of musicians he has performed with is staggering.

In addition to the ‘concert’, on our schedule today is an interview which includes a performance of Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue”, one of Leviev’s favorite pieces, plus a duet with the interviewer.

On a personal note, at a music convention I was privileged to have listened up close and personal to someone playing a Bösendorfer grand piano. I was quite impressed by its deep, reverberant sound. It was like being inside a concert hall. With a group of the caliber of Free Flight, it was a stroke of genius that Leviev plays a Bösendorfer on their self-titled album. Let’s welcome Mr. Milcho Leviev:
