Description: This will look to veteran collectors like 2 Melodiya LPs worth of really hard to find repertoire and it is: music for string orchestra by Georgian, Armenian and Azerbaijani composers who use folk music in more (Tsintsadze and Aslamazian, with their actual transcriptions of folk tunes) and less obvious ways (Amirov and his sophisticated use of Azeri melodies and forms). Caucasian Chamber Orchestra; Uwe Berkemer.
