Making his debut in Cape Town, Bulgarian-born American maestro Rossen Milanov is joined by solo pianist Natasha Paremski.
An experienced opera and ballet conductor, Rossen Milanov is music director of the Columbus, Chautauqua and Princeton Symphony Orchestras in America and the Orquesta Sinfonica del Principado de Asturias in Spain. He has collaborated with some of the world’s preeminent artists, including Yo-Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman, Joshua Bell, Midori, Christian Tetzlaff, and André Watts. Over his eleven-year tenure with The Philadelphia Orchestra, Milanov has been conducting more that 200 performances. His passion for new music has resulted in numerous world premieres of works by composers such as Derek Bermel, Mason Bates, Caroline Shaw, Phillip Glass, Richard Danielpour, Nicolas Maw, and Gabriel Prokofiev, among others.
Born in Moscow, at the age of four Natasha Paremski studies at the Andreyev School of Music in Moscow before moving to the United States. She has a degree from the Mannes College of Music, from which she graduates in 2007. Since then she performs with several professional orchestras, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Minnesota Orchestra, the San Francisco Symphony orchestra, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. With musical sensibility and powerful technique, Natasha Paremski reveals astounding virtuosity and voracious interpretive abilities. Awards and acclaimed CDs add to her appeal as one of the most dynamic artists in America today.
