ArtistsTbilisi Symphony Orchestra
He belonged to the small but highly prestigious group of East European conductors who set up a cultural counterdraft to the political conflicts in the times of cold war and became a much-vaunted advocate of late romantic orchestral repertoire. Mravinsky adored him for his Tchaikovsky interpretations and the Neue Zürcher Zeitung called him respectfully 'the Georgian Karajan'. And indeed, although most comparisons were lame 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.
Unlike Karajan he did not only put most of his emphasis on the sheer beauty of the orchestral sound but also investigated the dischord in the music and did not hesitate to unfold it. 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 kind of summary of Kakhidze's artistic legacy. Sadly he passed away too early in 2002.
