Other performers include Elena Bashkirova, Yefim Bronfman, Mao Fujita, Sergei Redkin, Fazil Say, András Schiff and Lahav Shani Marc Bouchkov and Vadim Repin; cellists Amanda Forsyth and Alexander Ramm; flautist Stathis Karapanos; baritones Matthias Goerne and Thomas Hampson, plus Thomas Quasthoff and his jazz group.

The festival's two artistic directors, Martin Engstroem and Avi Shoshani said: 'It’s testament to many people that this year’s Tsinandali Festival is able to take place – our thanks go to the artists, the audiences, our supporters and above all to the local team headed-up by David Sakvarelidze whose collective loyalty to George Ramishvili’s vision for a world-class festival remains as strong as ever.'
