What do classical music, science fiction and the time spent flying have in common? The debut short story collection “Whiff of Angels” was written by the Director of Sofia Philharmonic Nayden Todorov. There are no limits for talented artists and Nayden Todorov’s new role as a writer proves this point. The busy musician writes his stories when he flies and travels from one place to another. The collection tells fantastic stories are about angels and robots, people endowed with the ability to change events or to inhabit the bodies of the dead, in order to continue their deeds, a magic violin in the hands of young musicians, a baton that penetrates in the souls of musicians.


The premiere of the short story collection “Whiff of Angels” will take place on September 2 within the frameworks of Apollonia Arts festival held in the coastal town of Sozopol.
