The two Italian musicians on this album may be considered to have joined their number, from the composer’s personal and effusive imprimatur of this album: ‘Your performance and particularly your interpretation made an indelible impression on me,’ he writes. ‘The breathing, the freedom and the inspiration I heard are impossible to convey with the notes on the staff.I think that you managed to catch exactly what I could only dream of!’
The miniatures derive from the many scores of incidental music which Kancheli composed for plays and films in the Eastern bloc during the 1960s and 70s. The theme music for When Almonds Blossomed has achieved a certain popularity in its own right, but fans both of Kancheli’s music, and memorable if melancholy‐tinged film music, will be delighted to discover there is much more in the same vein.
Cortesi’s own booklet note testifies to his passion for Kancheli’s music: ‘Giya Kancheli is the utmost ‘human’ composer. But his music does not give knowledgeable answers about the world or rigid truths. It is so intensely oriented towards delicate or despairing gestures of humanity which forgets to explore the frontiers of contemporary language or experimentation. And it is with this renouncing of virtuosity that something extraordinary and mysterious happens: it speaks to our souls through us.’
