SULKHAN TSINTSADZE (1925-1991): 24 Preludes.
Catalogue Number: 03U053
Label: Grand Piano
Description: One of the most original and brilliant of Georgian composers, Tsintsadze synthesized 20th-century classical music elements with the rhythmic, melodic, harmonic, and modal characteristics of Georgian folk music. In so doing he developed, across a wide spectrum of the repertoire, his own highly personal and approachable idiom. His Preludes were composed in 1971 and are unmistakably national in character, giving new life to traditional Georgian folk songs and dances in a masterfully structured cycle. Inga Fiolia (piano).
