Mr. Pentchev, Director of Quassica™ Music, started playing piano at the age of 6, gave his first solo recital at the age of 12 and played as an orchestra soloist for the first time at age 14. Since then he has played over 30 recital programs in Bulgaria, Greece, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Russia, UK, USA and Canada. He has been a soloist of symphony orchestras in Bulgaria and Great Britain.
Mr. Pentchev can trace back directly his teaching lineage to Arthur Rubinstein, Franz Lizst, Carl Czerny and Ludwig van Beethoven only 3 or 4 generations back. He is a proud successor of different European and North American Piano teaching traditions.
Mr. Pentchev started teaching when he was just 18, right after graduating summa cum laude from a specialized Music High School in Bulgaria. He was second overall in the class of 1987. Throughout the years, Dr. Pentchev has enjoyed the success of many of his students. He is most proud of the love for Piano playing he has managed to inspire in his pupils, regardless of what field or profession they grow into. This success lead him to decide to start QUASSICA™ Music in 2016. The school has been a resounding success, increasing the number of students 6 times in the first two years.
Our unique Masterclass program is gathering more and more attention and appreciation, including by other music teachers and schools who would like to implement it.
We at QUASSICA™ are planning to offer some new and exciting programs for the next school year. Make sure to subscribe to our newsletter and to follow us us on social media.
