LHI Live: Edisher Savitski's Boundless Schumann

Nov 6, 2014

During the time the Soviet Union was falling apart in the 1990s, Edisher Savitski was a young pianist pursuing a career in music while supporting the independence movement in his country, the Democratic Republic of Georgia.

An invitation to study in the United States changed his life.

In this hour of WMUK's Let's Hear It, Edisher tells the story of his musical background, and gives an astonishing, one-take performance of Schumann's Symphonic Variations, Op 13, in WMUK's Takeda studio.
