London-based Bulgarian guitarist Pavel Ralev is becoming well-known for his refined technique and intuitive approach to interpretation. He has won several prizes from international competitions, most recently the 1st prizes at the 2021 Adelaide Guitar Competition and Zagreb Guitar Competition, 2019 Plovdiv GuitArt Festival and Pleven Guitar Festival, as well as the Prix Savarez for best performance of music by J.

He has performed at Kings Place Hall One, St. James’s Piccadilly, Duke’s Hall, Bulgarian National Opera House and has been broadcast on the Bulgarian National Radio and Television.

In 2020 Pavel was a EuroStrings Artist, which saw him tour five European guitar festivals. He was also selected on the International Guitar Foundation’s Young Artist Platform and performed at the IGF Guitar Summit and London Guitar Festival, premiering new work commissioned for the event. 

After studying at the National School of Music and Dance Arts “Dobrin Petkov” with Milena and Valentin Valtchev, Pavel was awarded a full scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music where he studied with Prof. Michael Lewin, David Russell and Fabio Zanon.
