Art Director: Prof. MINCHO MINCHEV
The courses of the
International Summer Music Academy were the
first music master classes organized in Bulgaria
since 1984. It is an ingenious artistic
laboratory where the young talents improve their
mastery through the process of communication
with renowned musicians and pedagogues. The
master classes in combination with the concerts
of tutors and participants enrich the
professional skills of young musicians and
create an atmosphere where they begin to
establish their artistic career. Many of the
students are already participants in various
The prestige of the Academy has been establish
by the names of renowned professors such as
Yfrah Neaman, Roza Fain, Vera Gornostaeva,
Germaine Mounier, Boris Bloch, Janos Starker,
Robert Cohen, Karl Osterreicher, Andras Adorjan,
Vaclav Junek, Edward Tarr, Siegfried Fink,
Thomas Martin, Hermann Baumann, Margarita
Lilova, Lazar Berman, Catherine Vickers, Frank
Lloyd, Michael Roll, Joaquin Clerch…
In recent years the Art Director Prof. Mintcho
Mintchev has realized his overall idea for
joined-up concerts of the tutors which take
place only here. Everyday work, freedom and
creative contacts between the different
generations, sometimes the sudden transformation
of one young musician, the magic of the festival
stage, ensemble performances – all that which is
born right here right now and everything else
enhanced by the striving after artistic
excellence and invention create the unique
experience of the Academy.
Since 2013, within the framework of the
International Summer Music Academy creative
meetings have been held with visiting artists -
participants in the concert program.
Creative meetings, called "Blitz Varna Summer",
include interviews as a free talk with the
performers, and a short workshop.
Meetings are open to all
listeners, and not only establish close contact
between artists and their audience, but also
provide an opportunity for direct communication
between young musicians and renowned artists.
