Giya Kancheli: Lament

Gidon Kremer, Maacha Deubner, Tbilisi Symphony Orchestra, Jansug Kakhidze

Breathtaking and emotionally-fraught violin by Gidon Kremer dominates one of Georgian composer Kancheli’s most moving compositions, dedicated to fallen comrade Luigi Nono. Reviews of the work in performance have spoken of a vast, brooding, stillness, where patience is "rewarded by moments of great, piercing beauty."
