"One came away not only dazzled, but spiritually uplifted...Only a truly unique artist could play with such a tonal personality and vivacity of sound."

“Divine Geometry” – A Fusion of Classical Music and Electronics
Dudana Mazmanishvili and Kristjan Järvi have found a truly “divine” title for their joint project. There is a Piano Concerto by Bach, catapulted into the 21st century by electronic means – after all, the baroque master composer was one of the greatest transformers ever. Then we find a selection of Handel’s Concerti grossi, also given a contemporary sound by Järvi. The conductor himself also composes and contributes a world premiere, a Piano Concerto with the promising title New York. Finally, the pianist Dudana Mazmanishvili and the DJ Irakli Kiziria, no unknown face on Berlin’s club scene, ensure plenty of spontaneous improvisation on stage. The goal: using “divine geometry” to make Berlin’s Konzerthaus lift off the ground!

This Schumann album marks the collaboration between CuGate Classics and Georgian pianist Dudana Mazmanishvili. It contains a tremendous reading of the “unplayable“ Toccata and well-considered examinations of two further romantic masterpieces by Schumann. The album closes with a world premiere recording: Lagidzes Rondo Toccata, which builds a highly virtuoso bridge to the Schumann Toccata, sprinkling some Georgian spice over the German romantic repertoire.
The OehmsClassics Debut series presents a young pianist whose career is developing on both sides of the Atlantic: Dudana Mazmanishvili; Her extensive repertoire is represented on this release by works ranging from Bach to Rachmaninov.
