Thank you Jim.....a very useful site towards some research I am currently undertaking with Georgian composers.

Another work by Gudiashvili - his Piano Sonata No. 1 (1975)

Thank you for the Gudiashvili pieces, Malcolm. Gave me something totally unexpected to play through today.

I don't know if someone else has posted this link here: the Parliamentary Library of Georgia has digitized almost 1000 scores from obscure composers from Georgia and around. Navigating them is quite messy but possible

An example: Grigol Kokeladze - Ten Piano Pieces

Thanks for the heads-up on this. I can barely read any Georgian but Google Translate can read way more! Also, several of the publications' titles/authors are also displayed in Russian, which I can read. I will see about putting together a list of links for the works. It appears they scanned everything in color, so the files are huge!

The Georgian scores I have been sharing are from that site - but be warned the vast majority are choral or vocal works (probably 1 piano work for 30-40 vocal works) - and I will try to post all the piano one's here on PP eventually. So you can either access direct or be patience. I am also getting the file size reduced as I go along, because as Caostotole states, they are extremely big. I am also translating into English as well, which will save everyone time and effort !
