This evening will be a 'Balkan Blaze' of Balkan rhythms and melodies, encompassing everything from classical and jazz to folk music.

He will be joined by the Philharmonia Orchestra and the London Bulgarian Choir.

Traditional — Rano Mi E More Sluntse Ogreyalo; Two Bulgarian folk songs
Vittorio — Monti Czardas
