About

This new release is the sequel to the Djansug Kakhidze Legacy. The first five volumes were released in 2015 as a reminiscence of the famous Georgian conductor Djansug Kakhidze on the occasion of his 80th birthday. He belonged to the small but highly prestigious group of Eastern European conductors who set up a cultural counterdraft to the political conflicts in the times of the Cold War. He conducted almost every A-class symphony orchestra in his hemisphere 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 go 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.
