Nowadays I am listening to the piano concerti by Vladigerov, as well as Orchestral Works vol.1, from Capriccio.  A reviewer at Musicweb indicates that the PC No. 4 by Vladigerov, possibly my favorite pc by V, resembles the Symphonic Variations. I must listen to the latter carefully  :) :).

Interesting! Coincidentally I've recently been enjoying the 1st Symphony by Vladigerov - a fine new discovery.

Did he only compose one symphony?

No. 2 symphonies and many orchestral and concerti works. Some of them are below.
My apology for talking about Vladigerov on this thread.

Sounds like a lovely performance of my favorite tone poem by him.

Yes, it's one of my favourites too Cesar and surprisingly little known.
