Notes & Reviews:

Georgian born pianist Ketevan Sepashvili's latest album by the title Fantasy Images presents two great piano cycles: Kreisleriana Op. 16 by Robert Schumann - composed with Clara Wieck, the adored daughter of his teacher and his later wife in his thoughts- constitutes one of the most demanding and varied piano cycles of German romanticism. The title Kreisleriana refers to the artist figure of "Kreisler" by E. T. A. Hoffman, an eccentric, wild, and quick-witted Kapellmeister. Similar to Schumann, Sergey Rachmaninov had more or less concrete pictures in mind while composing the Etudes- Tableaux Op. 39. Ketevan Sepashvili succeeds inimitably in painting these fantasy images through the listeners ears to the mind's eye. Ketevan Sepashvili's exceptional talent became evident in her early childhood. Before she was two she began playing Georgian folk music melodies she had heard on the piano. Following her professional training she continued her studies with Hans-Jurg Strub in Switzerland. Her artistic work has already brought her numerous national and international prizes and scholarships.
