Fortissimo Fest – Music Under the Stars – classical concert – film music and Bulgarian folklore – conductor: Maxim Eshkenazy.
In 2010, Maxim Eshkenazy and the America for Bulgaria Foundation started the biggest and most ambitious classical music project in Bulgaria – the Fortissimo Fest. The goal of the festival is to present the best examples from the classical music stage in Bulgaria and the United States, encouraging a deeper mutual understanding between the two cultures. Fortissimo Fest strives to attract new audiences to classical music concerts and foster a new attitude to this valuable art form. An important part of the project is the festival’s educational program for primary school students, which is funded with revenues from the Fortissimo concerts.
