Notes and Editorial Reviews

After the solo album with works by Beethoven, Bulgarian pianist Donka Angatschewa plays works of Franz Liszt. She dedicates the recording to her friend and supporter Heinz Aeschlimann who gave her the initial idea to play Liszt’s B minor sonata and supported her over the years. A whirlwind at the piano, a sensitive musician with excellent technical skills and phenomenal pianistic expression — this is how the young pianist is celebrated both by critics of the Wiener Zeitung and Luzerner Zeitung as well as by renowned musicians such as the Artemis Quartet. Born in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, Donka Angatcheva Maraszto made her debut as a soloist with the Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra at the age of ten. A pupil of Maria and Diana Slavova as well as Read more Milena Mollova (a student of Emil Gilels), Angatcheva won numerous awards at international piano competitions from an early age. She completed her studies with Heinz Medjimorec, a member of the Haydn Trio, at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. Angatcheva’s artistic development was heavily influenced by master classes with musicians such as Ludmil Angelov, Boris Romanov, Catherine Vickers, Peter Efler, Tiny Wirtz and Oxana Yablonskaya.
