The Orpheus Quartet was founded in June 2002. This chamber music group consists of the four Bulgarians: Irina Decheva, piano; Iliana Stefanova, violin; Nikolay Dimitrov, viola and Veselin Dechev, violoncello. The musicians obtained their professional education from the P. Vladiguerov National Academy of Music in Sofia, Bulgaria.
The quartet was created in connection with the project of the Institute of Culture of Yucatán (now the Ministry of Culture and Arts of Yucatán), whose purpose is to introduce European methods of music education, European experience in orchestral performance and chamber music. The overall goal is to present to the Mexican public examples of works of chamber music, including different musical styles from Baroque to contemporary music,
