Georgian-born pianist Ketevan Sepashvili's latest album by the title Fantasy Images presents two great piano cycles: Kreisleriana, op.16, by Robert Schumann – composed with Clara Wieck, the adored daughter of his teacher and his later wife in his thoughts – constitues one of the most demanding and varied piano cycles of German Romanticism. The title Kreisleriana refers to the artist figure of “Kreisler” by E.T.A. Hoffmann, an eccentric, wild, and quick-witted Kapellmeister. Similar to Schumann, Sergei Rachmaninov had more or less concrete pictures in mind while composing the Etudes-Tableaux, op.39. Ketevan Sepashvili succeeds inimitably in painting these fantasy images through the listeners ears to the mind's eye.
