Programme Note
Giya Kancheli V & V (1995)
Composer note:

In my third symphony the vocal part was performed and recorded by a famous Georgian popular singer – Mr. H. Gonashvili. The uniqueness and distinctiveness of his voice (Mr. H. Gonashvili tragically died in an accident in 1988) have inspired me to use the recording of his voice in my new composition “V&V.”

In this relatively small piece I tried to confront the Eternal (the Divine voice) and the Real (the soloing violin and the string orchestra).

The first performance of this piece was conducted by Mr. Menuhin. Now it will be performed by Mr. Kremer. It is a great honor and an excitement to me, as both persons combine in the notions of Eternity and Reality in themselves.
