The first concert is dedicated to the 50th birthday of Georgi Kornazov – trombonist, composer and arranger who lives in France – and will feature his suite “Reflections”.


Georgi Kornazov has released several albums among them Sila meaning Strength, Suznanie or Conscience, a project which was turned into a suite performed by the Big Band of the BNR etc. Audiences in Bulgaria are acquainted with another one of his projects as well – Shades of Light, presented in 2018 together with elite Bulgarian jazz musicians.
