He specialised under the conductors Yevgeny Mravinsky and Arvid Yansons in 1976, and in 1985 took part in an opera conducting course at La Scala in Milan.

Between 1972 and 1982 he worked as a conductor at the Plovdiv Philharmonic, after which he was appointed chief conductor of the Rousse State Opera (1981-1985). From 1985 to 1990 he was simultaneously director of the Rousse Opera and conductor at the Sofia Opera. From 1990 to 1995 he was the permanent conductor of the San Marino Symphony Orchestra. He was conferred with the highest award of the Republic – Knight of the Order of Santa Agatha. For the 1995/1996 season, he led the Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra again as Music Director and Principal Conductor, executing a number of projects, national and international tours, including the opening of the European Month of Culture, broadcast live on Eurovision.

He has been a guest of all Bulgarian symphony orchestras, toured in Russia, Romania, Hungary, Germany, Italy, Poland, Czech Republic, Cuba, Mexico, Spain, etc. His impressive repertoire includes symphonic works, opera titles, cantata-oratorio works.

He has been praised by the German press: We need to mention the Bulgarian guest conductor Georgi Dimitrov, who places himself and his superb conducting always in the service of the music flourishing under his hands. With his delicate movements, he creates with his “instrument“ the orchestra, worlds of sounds and immerses listeners in surreal amazement (“Südkurier of Baden Württemberg).

He teaches conducting masterclasses and serves on juries at international competitions.
