Product Description

Lisa Batiashvili’s debut album for DG, Echoes of Time, is a matter of the heart - Lisa focuses her programme on composers whose lives and work have been heavily influenced by the political happenings in former Soviet Union. Inspired by personal experience, Lisa herself went into German exile with her family during the political upheaval in Georgia in 1991.

The programme spans the whole of the 20th century, classics by Shostakovich ("Waltz from the Doll’s Dances") and Rachmaninov’s ever popular "Vocalise" are combined with Georgian composer, Giya Kancheli’s "V and V", and Estonian, Arvo Pärt’s "Spiegel im Spiegel", written shortly before the composer went into exile.

For Pärt’s "Spiegel im Spiegel" and Rachmaninov’s "Vocalise" Lisa teams up with one of DG’s most distinctive pianists, Hélène Grimaud. Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts the Symphonieorchester des bayerischen Rundfunks.

I don't know very much about this violinist, but this performance of Shostakovich's 1st Violin Concerto is the most intensely felt and, at the same time, the most beautiful account I've ever come across since I listened to David Oistrakh's recordings. She brings out the inner angst and wistful lyricism of the music with her deeply expressive tone finely balanced with her intellectual focus.

Coupled with the hauntingly evocative music including Giya Kancheli's 'V&V' and the inspired performance of Arvo Pärt's 'Spiegel im Spiegel' (played slower than Tasmin Little's version and finer than Gil Shaham's account), this is well worth adding to your library.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Lisa Batiashvili's native Georgia straddles East and West, historically tossed between Roman, Byzantine, Persian, Ottoman and Russian empires. This seems relevant to Batiashvilli's quite exceptional performances. She gives an oriental colour and a kind of mystical yearning to these pieces. Her Shostakovich is inspired by her encounters with Kanchelli, Part and Gubaidulina's sacrificial sound world. These composers from the borderlands of the former USSR inform her reading of the Russian Shostakovich and bring out the oriental aspect of his work. This is apparent in her seeming suspension of time in a work that has so may moments of forward impetus. What a pity that DG should market her as one more sexy woman string player, featuring her photo and name while not even mentioning the composers on the front of the box. That said, Batiashvilli gives a new edge to the term 'soloist' as her violin evokes a sense of lonely desolation that makes this a unique interpretation.

This is one of the best performances of the Shostakovich concerto I've heard beautifully recorded. Lisa Batiashvili is a brilliant violinist and she gives an almost flawless account of this technically demanding concerto. Highly recommended.

I don't know the other pieces on this disc other than Batiashvili's interpretation, but they're played beautifully and the recording is excellent. My only quibble really is with her interpretation of the Shostakovich Violin Concerto. The only other recording I have is by David Oistrakh, and they might be different concertos, the sound world is so different. Batiashvili's is cool, lyrical and absolutely void of drama. That's all very well if it's what you like, but I do prefer some passion showing.

This is a wonderful cd with an intriguing programme. The Shostakovich concerto is marvelously done. Both Batiashvili, Salonen and the great players of the Bavarian RSO are in top form and the recording balance is ideal. The other items on the disc are splendid too. Strongly recommended.
