Eagerly anticipated album by Georgia’s Giya Kancheli (“the most important composer to have emerged from the former Soviet Union since the death of Shostakovich.” – Time Magazine), released in the year of his 70th birthday. This disc features one of Kancheli’s most ardent champions, the great violinist Gidon Kremer., who plays in duo with his old comrade, Russian pianist Oleg Maisenberg on the 26 minute "Time... and again”, and leads the Kremerata Baltica on “V & V” for violin, taped voice, and string orchestra. The album is completed by the Piano Quartet, subtitled "In L’istesso tempo”, performed by the Russian-American-British group, the Bridge Ensemble.
