Notes and Editorial Reviews

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 Georgian born pianist, Dudana Mazmanishvili, received her first piano lessons, at age 3, from her mother Tamar Apakidze. Three years later she was accepted into the Central Music School for Talented Children in Tbilisi. Since 1998 she has been a student of Prof. Elisso Virsaladze at Read more the Hochschule fur Musik und Theater in Munich. In 2005 she began her studies with the American pianist Jerome Rose in New York. She has received master-classes from Earl Wild, Dmitri Bashkirov, Paul Badura-Skoda, Boris Berezovsky, Claude Frank, etc. She is a prize-winner of numerous international piano competitions, including the 2005 Washington International Piano Competition. Other noteworthy successes were the Nicolai Rubinstein International Competition in Paris, where she was awarded the top prize. In 1998-2001, she received the annual Honorary Prize awarded by the President of Georgia to talented young Georgians. Read less
