With the passing of years it is not often that one has the opportunity to listen to the sublime performances of Mira Yevtich. Her virtuosity and education reveal a rare talent, energy and love for music. Her repertoire includes a vast program of classic and modern composers such as Bach, Mozart, Brahms, Schubert, Schumann, Chopin, Bartok, Shchedrin, Raskatov, Haydn, Beethoven, Mussorgsky, Prokofiev, Jevtić, Foster, Silvestrov, Levkovich and Rachmaninoff to mention a few. We are proud and delighted with the opportunity to “steal” this exceptional artist from the European concert halls and wish it will be possible to listen to her again in the years to come.
