Giya Kancheli Trauerfarbenes Land (1994)
Composer note:

Does anyone know the color of sadness? Neither do I know it. And at the same time the events which have occurred around us have for each person has their own color. When I lived and worked in Germany, my feelings adjusted themselves completely involuntary to become a “country colored with sadness.” And naturally I wished that my listeners would not remain untouched by my sadness and my pain. Every one of us has, after all, a “country colored with sadness.” Is there actually a “country colored with joy?” I do not know.
