cd cover Composer-pianist Antoni Donchev has received many Bulgarian jazz awards over the last fifteen years and been featured at number of major jazz festivals. In addition to his work with his Acoustic Version, Donchev works in a number of other projects with musicians from all over Europe. Donchev is a model contemporary musician, easily and skilfully handling a broad variety of forms, combining the versatility of jazz with the raw depth of folklore and structures of classical music.

Donchev's compositions are like imaginary landscapes - chamber music atmospheres. He is looking for the space between the spaces - the microcosmos of sounds. The music heard here is from film and theater works he has composed, performed by a chamber orchestra, with poetry by Edvin Sugarev.

Donchev proves to be master of the melody and the impressive, but economical instrumentation. He has created atmospheric, fascinating musical treasures. - EMANUEL WENGER / Jazz Live

It is worth mentioning that Antoni Donchev`s work finishes with a solo choral on the organ and his melodious piano play with "Talking to the Moon" witnesses his sincerety and love. A masterpiece! - with an imaginative booklet - lyrics by Edvin Sugarev, drawings and photographies by Dimiter Panev. The texts are included in Bulgarian and English. - CARINA PRANGE / Jazzdimensions
