Info for Poetry of Silence

Giya Kancheli is one of the few Georgian composers whose works are well known beyond the borders of his homeland. On her album Poetry of Silence the pianist Ketevan Sepashvili, also from Georgia, presents Kancheli's 33 Miniatures for Piano. The short pieces are all based on works for film or theater, which were his main areas of activity over a long period of time, and represent a broad cross-section of Kancheli's creativity from almost four decades. Four of the miniatures can be heard with additional flute, and the Twelve Miniatures for Voice and Piano were also arranged by the pianist for the trio cast, which introduces an additional tone color particularly well suited to the songs. Sepashvili is supported by her compatriots Temo Kharshiladze, flute and Madina Karbeli, soprano.

Ketevan Sepashvili
Georgian pianist Ketevan Sepashvili received her musical education at the Paliashvili Music School for exceptionally gifted children under Tamar Pchakadze and later at Tbilisi State Conservatory in the class of Svetlana Korsantia. From 2005 to 2007 she augmented her studies with Professor Hans-Jurg Strub in Switzerland.

As a soloist she has been and is a guest at well-known European piano festivals such as the Festival Klavierissimo in Switzerland (2007, 2009 and 2017), the Liszt Festival Raiding in Austria, the Rubinstein Piano Festival in Lodz, Poland, or the Festival Mozart@Augsburg in Germany.

Her debut CD «Faust» featuring works by Rachmaninov and Liszt appeared in 2012, and was described by the Wiener Zeitung as «fascinating» and «a new discovery». Her second CD recording «Fantasiebilder», with works by Schumann and Rachmaninov, appeared in 2016.

Temo Kharshiladze

He soon began to learn the transverse flute and after completing secondary school he studied at the State Conservatory in Tbilisi. In 2011 he was first scholarship holder of the Goethe Institute in Tbilisi.

In 2012 he came to Austria as an exchange student, where he studied at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna, completing his master's degree (concert performer, transverse flute) in 2018.

Madina Karbeli
Georgian soprano Madina Karbeli graduated from Tbilisi State Conservatory and Vienna University of Music and Performing Arts (2011). Since then she has been a regular guest on international opera and concert stages. Together with her partners, pianist Ketevan Sepashvili and flutist Temo Kharshiladze, she performed numerous concerts in Austria and Germany.
