In both the Georgian and Russian translation, the score indicates that this is a 'M. Kancheli' and, to me, seems way too early a publication to be one of Giya Kancheli's, i.e. the composer was only 13 when this was published, let alone written (which would have likely been a year or two earlier). I tried, but couldn't find any info on another composer of that name, but still feel like it's within possibility that there was a different Kancheli working in Georgia in the mid-century.
Well spotted Caostotale...........you are correct. Think I was too quick to automatically think it was by Giya. I have amended as such. Like you searched but could not find anything on a M Kancheli.
I google-translated M Kancheli back into Georgian and put into the Georgian library website and out popped:
M. Kancheli : Tbilisi State Conservatory Music theory professor at the Department. 1921-1984
Tbilisi V. Sarajishvili State Conservatory; Ministry of Culture of the Georgian SSR; Georgian Composers' Union.
A reference to an obituary in a newspaper is linked, but not digitised.

Georgian searches hit a dead-end, so I tried Russian, et voila:
