Discography
The Georgian Chamber Orchestra Ingolstadt was founded in 1964 in Tiflis. In 1990, its members moved to Ingolstadt, Germany. Since then, the ensemble has assumed a firm place in the German and international orchestral landscape. Ariel Zuckermann was appointed GMD of the orchestra in 2007. Although the Georgian Chamber Orchestra Ingolstadt presents music from the entire repertoire, music of Georgian origin plays a special place in its programs. This CD presents Georgian compositions from the 20th century, all written by composers who still have yet to be discovered.
The soloist in Joseph Bardanashvili’s Concerto quasi una Fantasia for piano, strings, celesta and harpsichord is Georgian pianist Alexander Korsantia. He won the Sydney International Piano Competition in 1988 and the Arthur Rubinstein Competition in Tel Aviv in 1995.
