Lisa Batiashvili, violin
Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen
Georgian Chamber Orchestra
Hot on the heels of her stunning debut recording for Sony BMG (Sibelius & Lindberg Violin Concertos) the Georgian violinist Lisa Batiashvili’s new solo album promises to garner the same high level of critical success.
Hailed as one of the most exciting musicians of her generation: “Dazzling…” (The Daily Telegraph) “…lavish virtuosity” (The Financial Times); her eagerly-awaited follow-up sees Batiashvili, internationally regarded as a superb interpreter of the classical repertoire and a decided champion of new music, in another adventurous collaboration with her trademark twist of unusual pairings: this time Beethoven’s Violin Concerto with the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen coupled with Miniatures by Georgian composer Sulkhan Tsintsadze (1925-1991) featuring the Georgian Chamber Orchestra.
Most unusually, both orchestras are directed by Ms Batiashvili herself.
Ms Batiashvili was recently featured in The Guardian as one of the “four young stars of classical music you need to hear”. Now, in her mid-20s, she continues to make an indelible impression on the international music scene with stunning successes throughout Europe, North America, Australia and the Pacific-Rim territories.
