Krassimira Jordan's imaginative and intuitive interpretations have elicited the highest acclaim from the press. Her compact disc releases, Slavic Masterworks for Piano and The Legacy of Pantcho Vladigerov, are both available on the Albany Records label. The most recent CD, which includes Franz Liszt's Sonata in B Minor, is available on www.cdbaby.com/cd/krassimira.
Her publications on the teaching of Anton Rubinstein, the music of Bulgarian composer Pantcho Vladigerov, and the artistry of one of the most enigmatic—and certainly the most adventurous—pianists of recent times, Marc-André Hamelin, have attracted the attention of music scholars and magazines worldwide.
Many of Krassimira Jordan's former students hold prestigious positions at different schools in the USA, Canada, China, Japan, Korea, Switzerland, Austria, Romania, and Germany. She is particularly well known to piano teachers associations in the United States and abroad through her extraordinary presentations, master classes, lecture-demonstrations, and highly professional adjudications.
