"The Seven Lakes" are seven out of 120 glacial lakes in Bulgaria's Rila National Park, the largest park in that country, in the popular Rila Mountain range.
Each lake has a name: Lake Salzata (The Tear), Lake Okoto (The Eye), Lake Babreka (The Kidney), Lake Bliznaca (The Twin), Lake Triristnika (The Trefoil), Lake Ribonoto (Fish Lake), Lake Dornot (The Lower Lake) in order of elevation.
Rather than depict the scenery of the lakes, the piece draws upon seven Bulgarian folk songs. This work is similar to Bartok's "Romanian Folk Dances" or Dvorak's "Slavic Dance".
