Notes and Editorial Reviews

Conducted by Ruben Gazarian, the Georgisches Kammerorchester Ingolstadt (Georgian Chamber Orchestra Ingolstadt) presents itself in this recording as a subtly formative body of sound that convinces in the experimental joy in the string symphonies of the young Mendelssohn as well as in the orchestral version of Arensky's darkly timbred second string quartet or the expressionism of the works of Hindemith and Schreker. Since its move to Germany in 1990, the Georgian Chamber Orchestra has been based in Ingolstadt. The former orchestra-in-exile, with the support of the City of Ingolstadt, Audi and the Ingolstadt Sparkasse, has become a fixture in cultural life both locally and further afield. The ensemble’s concert series, which have taken place Read more in Ingolstadt since 2001, enjoy consistently high attendance rates. The group considers itself an ensemble not only responsible for a significantly broad repertoire, but also as a cultural ambassador for the City of Ingolstadt. This involves activities beyond their regular concerts, including appearance at music festivals and concerts abroad. Read less
