Kyosev / Mihaylova Duo

Nikola Kyosev -  flute

Silviya Mihaylova - piano

Nikola Kyosev and Silviya Mihaylova first met in year 2000 at the National School of Music and Dance Art ‘Dobrin Petkov’ (NSMDA) in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, where they were both studying at the time. After being close friends for years they decided to perform together and so they start working as a duo in 2006 when Silviya was in her senior year at the school. A year and a half later, they both continued their education at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (formerly known as the Royal Scottish Academy for Music in Drama) in Glasgow and so did their duo. In 2010 Nikola and Silviya won first prize in the Recital category at the North London Festival of Music, Drama and Dance. A few months later they performed at The Fringe Festival in Edinburgh and in the same year the duo was accepted into Live Music Now! Scotland Scheme where they have the chance of bringing the joy and inspiration of live music to those who have limited access to conventional music-making.

The duo takes regular part in festivals around Scotland, including The Fringe and Young at Heart Festival, and has been performing around Scotland, England, Bulgaria, and Grand Canaria, where they had Radio Broadcast and concert at Gran Canaria Conservatoire. Their latest performance was in Mumbai, India, where they gave recital at Mehli Mehta Music Foundation.
