TELAVI INTERNATIONAL MUSIC FESTIVAL 2015

Telavi International Music Festival 2015 will be held from 10 to 18 October with the support of the Ministry of Culture and Monument Protection of Georgia.

Founded in the 1980s by renowned pianist of modern times Eliso Virsaladze, the festival was resumed in 2010 since which time it has been held annually with the support of the Ministry of Culture. This year’s Telavi festival will, as per traditional, host world-class musicians of different generations.

The 2015 festival is dedicated to the greatest pianist of the 20th century, Sviatoslav Richter, marking his 100th anniversary. Seven concerts will be performed from 10 to 18 October, including three concerts with symphony orchestras and two concerts of chamber music. Opera and piano evenings will also be held. The festival offers its listeners a diverse program that includes masterpieces of world classical music as well as modern and Georgian professional music. It is worth noting that two Georgian ensembles – the Georgian Philharmonic Orchestra and the Tbilisi State Chamber Orchestra Georgian Sinfonietta - will take part in the 2015 festival.
