"I have always had a fascination with the number 13 – while most associate it with being unlucky, I feel quite the opposite. My obsession with this number now translates into my first recording with LP Classics, a program based around the number 13 – the works by Schumann and Scriabin, Opus 13, and 13 “new” works, a sort of suite created for me and premiered by me, by 13 promising young composers. I recorded this recital program on Friday, September 13, 2013 and planned the CD’s release for Friday, December 13th, 2013”
"For the young Georgian pianist David Aladashvili, 13 is a lucky number: he was born on a Friday the 13th and he took to the piano at the unusually late age of 13. On this recording he brings together elegant and atmospheric renditions of Scriabin’s youthful Preludes (Op. 13) as well as Schumann’s eloquent Symphonic Études (Op. 13). Best of all, he extends the quirky concept by inviting 13 young composers to write short pieces for the project and there are plenty of delights and characterful surprises in their responses".
