Life

Dobri Hristov (b. 1875, d. 1941) was born in Varna, Bulgaria during the Bulgarian slavery (1396-1878).

Hristov was one of the major Bulgarian composers of the 20th century. He wrote mainly choral music, as well as some church music and music for the orchestra. He graduated from the Prague Conservatory in 1903 (under the directorship of the famous Czech composer Antonín Dvořák). He returned to Bulgaria and helped with the development of Bulgarian music culture, using lots of Bulgarian folklore elements in his compositions. He was conductor of "The Seven Saints" (http://www.thesevensaints.com) ensemble and choir in the church of the same name in Sofia, Bulgaria between 1911 and 1928.
