Most of this disc is taken up with Liszt's Christmas Tree, an unusually modest suite based on Christmas carols. It also offers charming pieces by Reger, Tchaikovsky, Rebikov, and Lyapunov based on Christmas themes, and a couple of Bach transcriptions. Eteri Andjaparidze, whose first CD was a sensational Prokofiev collection, plays this music truly superb musicianship and the kind of pianistic color that has become a rarity. Her Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring is the most beautiful I've heard since Dinu Lipatti's. And wait until you hear her delightful playing of Leroy Anderson's Sleigh Ride! It's deliciously witty and charming.

Review by Leslie Gerber

'In case the name escapes your memory, 'Eteri Andjaparidze is a Georgian/American pianist and pedagogue who as born on September 15, 1956, to the family of musicians in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia, Andjaparidze received her first piano lessons from her pianist mother Yvette Bachtadze. Her father Zurab Andjaparidze (1928-1997) was the leading tenor with the Bolshoi Opera and Tbilisi Paliashvili State Opera and Ballet Theatre. Her stepfather Leonid Oakley (1923-1991) was a Georgian scientist. Aged five Andjaparidze entered Tbilisi Special Music School for Gifted Children (piano studio of Meri Chavchanidze), and by age 9, she debuted in solo recital as well as a soloist with the Georgian State Symphony Orchestra. Andjaparidze earned her Master's and Doctoral degrees at the Moscow Tchaikovsky State Conservatoire under the guidance of Vera Gornostayeva, a student of Heinrich Neuhaus.' Eteri Andjaparidze is one of those rare pianists who is more concerned with her devotion to her art than to she is to fame. It is therefore fitting that one of the recordings she has made (this one dates back to 1998) is an homage to the Christmas season, and yet it is far more than the usual issue of Christmas music that floods the markets every year.

This recording is all piano music based on music for the season and while there are scattered carols throughout the recital, the pleasure here is hearing traditional carols as incorporated into the works of famous composers. She opens the recital with Max Reger's Aus der Jugenzeit - the 'Weinachtstraum' which happens to be a variation on Silent night. Then she proceeds to Bach's Sinfonia form the Chritsmas Oratorio. The longest work on the recital is Franz Liszt's Weihnachtsbaum, a series of twelve traditional carols Liszt arranged for the season - a work that is likely a first hearing for most.

Tchaikovsky's Les Saisons (oddly the composer titled the work in French!) - 'December Noel' - that sounds just right for a Tchaikovsky ballet. And Andjaparidze plays it with great flare. Vladimir Rebikov's great waltz from 'Volka' (the Christmas Tree) and Fetes de Noel (Svyatki), a set of four carols by Sergey Mikhaylovich Lyapunov, and Leroy Anderson's 'Sleigh Ride' round out the celebraton. As an encore Andjaparidze offers one of the most stirring versions of Bach's ' Jesu bleibet meine Freude' ("Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring").

This recital proves that Eteri Andjaparidze is a too infrequently heard star in the parade of contemporary pianists. He touch is impeccable and her sense of phrasing always makes the carols sing. Highly recommended CD for the Season.
