Vassil Kostov (1935-2001) was born in Sevlievo, Bulgaria in the family of a musician (trumpeter). This predestined his fate. He graduated from the Bulgarian State Conservatory as a trumpeter. He was laureate of the international youth festivals in Moscow /1957/ and Vienna /1959. For 23 years he was the leading trumpeter of the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra, then in charge of it and its Chief Artistic Director. He was also First Secretary of the Union of Bulgarian Musicians and a lecturer in trumpet and brass at the Bulgarian State Conservatory, a 15-years practice which has had a beneficial effect upon his musical works. His marches for brass band bear the marks of simplicity and high professionalism, of a great knowledge of the potentialities of the different instruments.

“The march carries a great emotional charge, having a strong impact on the mass listener. It evokes an elevated, cheerful, happy, festive, solemn, often even patriotic feeling and mood in the people. When the drum is beaten, as if one’s heart starts beating differently”
