Music by Giya KANCHELI
The genius of Georgian master Giya Kancheli has strongly inspired both the musicians of the Xylem Trio and the rising Georgian jazz star Liza Kereselidze. She has lived with the melodies of the great composer since childhood, and she has been guided into music by the master himself. Lisa was recommended for collaboration with Latvian trio musicians by Giya Kancheli's son, and now we are looking forward to this collaboration, which is based on the Xylem Trio's excellent understanding of Kancheli's melodies. The composer praised the Xylem Trio's album, which he once created, and expressed his excitement in the e-mail that no one has ever played his music.
The program includes Kancheli melodies composed for theatre performances and movies. The most famous numbers here will be a song from the movie "Mimino" and the once popular theater show "Hanuma".
Us awaits a touching, thrilling, subtle and exciting meeting with beautiful melodies and great musicians who virtually balance the edges of classical, jazz and world music.
