'4 piano miniatueres' were written in August 2012 (with them I 'took a rest' from the writting of 'Bossa Copa' for sax quartet and orchestra). They are inspired by the Bulgarian folklore music. The 1st one is a left hand toccata ostinato in 2/2 (and a lot of tonal centers) and in the same time the right hand quotes the Bulgarian folk song from Pirin region 'Katerino mome, sevda golema' ('Kathrin, my great love') in 8/8 (3+2+3). The 2nd one in 11/8 (3+2+2+2+2) is improvisation-like that quotes the folk song 'Uchi me, nayko, karay me' ('Teach me, Mom...'). The 3rd one is written in the spirit of the measureless folk songs (the other very popular thing in Bulgarian music together with the odd meters) but it's entirely atonal. The 4th is a rachenitsa (the most popular folk dance) in rondo structure. The theme is a melody supported by many side dominant 7-chords and the melodies in the episodes are supported by a countermelodies in different registers.
