GIYA KANCHELI (b.1935): 18 Miniatures for Violin and Piano (World Premiere Recording), Rag-Gidon-Time.
Catalogue Number: 02S075
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Each of these 19 short pieces is based on a theme from a play or film for which Kancheli wrote the music. Needless to say, Kancheli nearly always asks for everything to be played pianissimo and very slow, yet their brevity speaks a minimal yet evocative, ironic, poetic and dramatic language. Andrea Cortesi (volin), Marco Venturi (piano).
