11:30Giya Kancheli - Time... and Again
|Gidon Kremer, violin|
Oleg Maisenberg, piano
Time...and again makes use of crucial and characteristic themes from some of my recent works. It constitutes the conclusion of a creative period which led me from Trauerfarbenes Land to Valse Boston, and with it I take leave of an unusual epoch in which I experienced contradictions, doubts, great losses, and novel and unfamiliar feelings and emotions...Although I have prefaced this work with words from the Bible -- what I write is true. God knows I am not lying -- I am fully aware of the fact that honesty is not, by any stretch of the imagination, necessarily indicative of quality.
