Amusing miniatures and emotional string quartets. The 21 miniatures by Sulkhan Tsintsadze were discovered by the young viola player Michael Grolid while vacationing in the composer’s home country, Georgia. His fellow musicians in Opus 13 agreed that the short, catchy movements were fun to listen to, and not least fun to play. The young chamber ensemble, which was established at the Barratt Due Music Institute and currently participates in the Crescendo mentoring programme, has further selected Beethoven and Brahms for this Bergen International Festival concert.
