"One came away not only dazzled, but spiritually uplifted...Only a truly unique artist could play with such a tonal personality and vivacity of sound."

Harris Goldsmith, New York Concert Review


This Schumann album marks the collaboration between CuGate Classics and Georgian pianist Dudana Mazmanishvili. It contains a tremendous reading of the “unplayable“ Toccata and well-considered examinations of two further romantic masterpieces by Schumann. The album closes with a world premiere recording: Lagidzes Rondo Toccata, which builds a highly virtuoso bridge to the Schumann Toccata, sprinkling some Georgian spice over the German romantic repertoire.



The OehmsClassics Debut series presents a young pianist whose career is developing on both sides of the Atlantic: Dudana Mazmanishvili; Her extensive repertoire is represented on this release by works ranging from Bach to Rachmaninov.

"Extraordinary, marked by an exquisitely varied delicacy of touch and a sense of utterly individual authority." - Commentary Magazine
