About the album

Djansug Kakhidze: The Legacy Vol. 9 continues the series dedicated to the famous Georgian conductor, with works by Ravel, de Falla, Liszt, Sibelius and Mussorgsky performed by the Tbilisi Symphony Orchestra.

Djansug Kakhidze belonged to the small elite group of Eastern European conductors who set up a cultural counterdraft to the political conflicts during the Cold War. He conducted countless prestigious symphony orchestras and became a highly acclaimed advocate of late Romantic orchestral repertoire. Mvravinsky adored him for his Tchaikovsky interpretations and the Neue Zürcher Zeitung respectfully called him ‘the Georgian Karajan’. And indeed, there were numerous 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.

Together with the Tbilisi Symphony Orchestra, which he founded in 1993, he shaped the character of music and also went to its limits, if necessary. Kakhidze shows to be an expert in symphonic sound design, creating this unparalleled sonorous East European string sound. Not only that: he also exposes the brilliant brass section of the Tbilisi Symphony Orchestra at their best.
