The most famous Georgian composer on earth — oh, no, the most mysterious and unworldly composer on the planet who is gifted, like Prospero, with foreboding and clairvoyance, — he has for over half a century been forecasting the world’s rough weather.

The silence of anxiety but not serenity, the silence that equally touches the strings of an individual soul and strikes the chords of the objective reality.
