Lisa Batiashvili – Chaplin/Daniderff: City Memories (Arr. Rachveli)
Taking its name from Charlie Chaplin’s 1931 film, violinist Lisa Batiashvili’s new album “City Lights” crosses genres, mixes memories, places, sounds and music to powerful and haunting effect. “City Lights” takes the listener across the world with eleven carefully chosen pieces that represent the most important cities in Lisa's life, along with a suite based on Charlie Chaplin’s own music for “City Lights” and other films of his. The Chaplin suite “City Memories” draws on music he composed for his own films (including the theme for Modern Times, also made famous as the song “Smile”).
