Notes & Reviews:

This new release is the complete recording of the Miniatures for violin and piano by GIya Kancheli. Giya Kancheli is a Georgian composer whose intensely personal style is related to Minimalism and the New Spirituality. His Miniatures for violin and piano are like short stories, evocative, ironic, poetic, and dramatic. The themes are inspired by the cinema and the theatre. Kancheli nearly always asks to play pianissimo and very slow, in order to eventually disconnect with the instrument and enter another dimension of time and sound. These works are played with total dedication and intensity by violinist Andrea Cortesi and pianist Marco Venturi, who already successfully recorded for Brilliant Classics works by Glass, Tuur and Kancheli. Kancheli himself wrote of the musicians on this recording: "Your performance and particularly your interpretation made an indelible impression on me. The breathing, the freedom and the inspiration I heard are impossible to convey with the notes on the staff. I think that you managed to catch exactly what I could only dream of!..."
