From the Publisher

Otar Taktakishvili (1924-1989) was a Georgian composer, conductor, administrator, and artistic director, who played a leading role in the post-war revival of professional Georgian music. He graduated from the Tbilisi Conservatory in 1947, having composed the official anthem of the Georgian Republic while still a student, and before long he became a professor there. Later in his career, he was Chairman of the Georgian Composers’ Union and Minister of Culture of the Georgian Republic.

Taktakishvili, like most Georgian composers of his generation, was heavily influenced by local folk music. Georgian choral polyphony is among the oldest in the Christian world, and its distinctive techniques are seen in his lyrical and expressive style.

In the west, Taktakishvili’s best known work is perhaps his Sonata For Flute And Piano in C major. This 44-page book contains all three movements and comes with a separate Flute score.
