(1927 - 1996)

A teacher and a prominent figure in public life, Sulkhan Nasidze held the Chair of Composition at the Tbilisi State Conservatory. He was also chairman of the Georgian Composers Union, a ‘People’s Artist of Georgia’ and holder of the Shota Rustaveli Prize. The Chamber Symphony No. 3 was written in 1969. Constructed in one movement, moving through a range of tempi (Andante, Allegro, Maestoso, Andante), the work takes the folklore from the mountain region Khevsurian as its root inspiration. The Symphony received a successful première in Moscow in 1970. In 1973 the work was awarded the Rustaveli Premium, the national prize.
