Notes & Reviews:

Expedition Audio Recommended
So much of this music is originally and profoundly beautiful. As different as these works are from one another, the one thing that always held me fascinated were Nenov's harmonies, in many places, like nothing I've ever heard before.... read more ...

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Nenov seems to be at his best crafting calm, reflective passages. The first portion of the Fairy Tale and Dance, and the 'Pastoral' movement from the Miniatures are quite rewarding. Perhaps the most noteworthy entry here is the 23- minute Cinema Suite, tellingly, both the earliest and the most adventurous of the compositions presented. Echoes of Bartok and Ravel inflect the composer's youthful enthusiasm. Valkov's playing is very good. Accompanied by informative pianist.
