About this Album

The CD of this album is available to purchase at ArkivMusic.

Georgian composer Giya Kancheli, hailed by Time as “the most important composer to emerge from the old Soviet Union since Dmitri Shostakovich,” writes music that incorporates elements of both sacred and folk music. Kancheli’s work often develops slowly, yet animatedly and cinematically, as demonstrated by his fourth and fifth symphonies heard here.
