PARMA is pleased to welcome composer Dr. Robert Gross to the PARMA Family! We will be working with Dr. Gross on an upcoming album, titled WOLPE VARIATIONS, featuring PARMA pianist Viktor Valkov.
Dr. Gross' release will feature his variations on a theme by the 20th century German Composer Stefan Wolpe. Dr. Gross has an esteemed past, that includes receiving a DMA for Motion Pictures and Television.
An established and accomplished individual, he was the first person to complete two graduate level programs at USC, and has also received multiple degrees from Rice University, Oberlin Conservatory and University of Bristol. PARMA is thrilled to be working with Dr. Gross on this album.
Since the early 2000's Valkov has traveled the world performing in Asia, Europe and the United States. He was the winner of the 2015 Astral Artists National Auditions and also the 2012 New Orleans International Piano Competition. He is frequently working with Lachezar Kostov, a Bulgarian cellist, who both reflect a vast interest in the chamber music repertoire, as well as lesser known piano music.
Viktor Valkov is featured on PARMA Recordings Navona Records release, KOSTOV-VALKOV DUO.
