From customers:

Richard S, 6 years ago

Encompassing a variety of styles, his playing was very accomplished and the performance itself was focused and most engaging, with beautifully gauged variations of tonal colours and musical moods throughout.

Stanislav H, 6 years ago

Pavel Ralev has an ability to play music from many genres with character and originality. It is a pleasure to listen to him.
