ArtistsTbilisi Symphony Orchestra
In memory of the famous Georgian conductor Djansug Kakhidze on the occasion of his 80th anniversary. He belonged to the small but highly prestigious group of East European conductors who set up a cultural counter to the political conflicts during the cold war, and became a much-vaunted advocate of late romantic orchestral repertoire.
Mvravinsky adored him for his Tchaikovsky interpretations and the Neue Zürcher Zeitung called him respectfully "Georgian Karajan". And indeed, there were some similarities: the economical gestures, the endless working on sound perfection, the passion for big dynamics and a great affection for the Golden Age of classic and romantic music.
Together with the Tbilisi Symphony Orchestra, which he founded in 1993, he shaped the character of music and, if necessary, went also to its limits.
The anniversary collection consists of five volumes, which give a summary of Kakhidze's artistic legacy. Sadly he passed away in 2002.
The present releases come from the 24 bit /96 khz state-of-the-art recordings from the St Petersburg Classics archive. They are carefully remastered by the prestigious Grammy award-winning b-sharp studio Berlin using the original source material.
