The Bulgarian cellist Lachezar Kostov has performed as an orchestral soloist, recitalist and chamber musician in the United States, Japan and Europe. Having started playing the cello at the age of five, he gave his first recital when he was twelve. Winner of top prizes at numerous international competitions, he made his Carnegie Hall début in 2009 together with his long-time friend and chamber music collaborator pianist Viktor Valkov and they have since performed with critical acclaim in New York, Washington DC, Houston and Tokyo.

Lachezar Kostov studied the cello with Norman Fischer at Rice University, Aldo Parisot at Yale School of Music and Zvi Plesser at UNCSA, and took part in master-classes with Yo-Yo Ma, David Grigorian and Bernard Greenhouse. He has been chiefly interested in expanding the standard cello repertoire and re-discovering works for cello and piano from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
