This unique collection features 25 melodies played by the legendary Bulgarian clarinetist and compiled by Yves Moreau from the archives of the Bulgarian National Radio and the former state-owned Balkanton record company.
Clarinet players in the Thracian region of Bulgaria are legion, but Georgi Koev’s style was unique. Recognized as a very astute and self-assured performer, Koev was famous for his improvisation. His repertoire consisted of traditional dances from the Pazardzhik region and slow expressive melodies which always moved his audiences.
«Georgi Koev produced a sound so close to the human voice. When he played, it was as if he was telling a story. His slow melodies sounded much like weeping and were very touching» - Prof. Petko Radev (Renowned Bulgarian clarinetist)
