Also her name better transcribed as Darejan Okromch'edlishvili. I'll let you know if I find any information about her.
Best,
Parag
This bears the identical hand-written name 'Darejan' (with its elongated 'j')
as the above piano album by Darejan Okromchedlishvili, and is dated 1955.
The filename is that used by the source.

This is a better quality file, and much bigger, but still with a very dubious filename.

"Darejan" - is a Gerogian female name and "Nawarmoebta Krebuli" means "collected pieces"

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.
M. Kancheli aka Michail Kancheli (1921-1984) was Georgian theorist and pedagogue. little known as a composer, mostly used to write methodical music for children, worked at faculty of composition and theory at Tbilisi State Conservatoire.

in Soviet musical educational system was very popular writing methodical works. like those Russians Maykapar or Goedike, lot of georgian composers used to write them too, but today they are totally forgotten. If you find in biographies word "composer" it does not always mean composer :D :D

P.S. Michail Kancheli has no relation with Giya Kancheli

Thank you shalvats for the translation. The Georgian alphabet looks amazing!
Are we absolutely sure that Darejan Okromchedlishvili is/was actually a composer?

no, maybe she studied at conservatoire, as she has photo wish famous georgian soprano, but no other information found on database of Georgian Parliament Library than she was a "musician"

Thanks for the extra information on her. My suspicion was that she
is/was indeed 'just' a musician, who produced very tidy hand-written
scores of Georgian music in the days before computer typesetting.

Thank you Timtin, Parag and Shalvats - seems there are three collections of piano music by Okrommudlishvili - but need to check through these (will share if they are different but may need Shalvats help to translate the Georgian).

And thank you Shalvats also for the info on Mikhail Kancheli.

From Georgian music site: Merab Alekseyevich Partskhaladze (1924 - 2008)

Have already shared a few works by Merab - more piano works, plus some pieces in the Chamber thread.
