Elfman has also confirmed his participation in a concert at Bulgaria Hall on October 5, the Sofia Philharmonic said.

Elfman’s Cello Concerto was written specially for the French cello player, and the Sofia Philharmonic is co-producer of the work.
Gautier Capucon has his own foundation to support young and talented musicians at the beginning of their careers.
On October 4, Capucon will hold a masterclass for Bulgarian cello students as part of the project titled Lessons of the Great: Masterclasses of the Sofia Philharmonic Soloists. The project started on April 5 with a masterclass by world-renowned violinist Julian Rachlin.
