Notes & Reviews:

The great Georgian composer's twelfth ECM New Series album features first recordings of two major works performed by two powerfully expressive violinists (Gidon Kremer/ Patricia Kopatchinskaja) and Kremerata Baltic who expertly interpret the stark dynamics of the composer's writing. Issued in celebration of Kancheli's 80th birthday.

BBC Music Magazine, January 2016
Technically, this music works only if its simplicity is expressed on the most complex and wide-ranging spectrum of tone, colour and dynamics, and that is what Gidon Kremer and his wonderful orchestra produce in Chiaroscuro, backed up by a superbly rich and detailed recording.
