Notes & Reviews:

This release is presented on the occasion of Georgian conductor Djansug Kakhidze's eightieth birthday. Kakhidze belonged to the small but highly prestigious group of Eastern European conductors who set up a cultural counterdraft to the political conflicts in the times of cold war. He conducted almost every A-list symphony in his hemisphere and became a much-vaunted advocate of late romantic orchestral repertoire. Mvravinsky adored him for his Tchaikovsky interpretations and the Nueu Zurcher Zeitung called him respectfully, "The Georgian Karajan." Indeed, although most comparisons go lame there were some 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. This anniversary collection consists of five volumes, which give a summary of Kakhidzes artistic legacy. These particular recordings are taken from the St. Petersburg Classics archive. They have been carefully remastered using the original source material.
