What to Do with All This Love


What to Do with All This Love




CATALOGUE TEXT
An on-site inspection: Worn parquet floors. Wooden panelling from which the portraits of famous composers are hanging – some just pinned up without a frame and placed, supposedly, so that the musical geniuses discreetly cover damaged spots. Piles of seating and storage furniture from every stylistic period which would ruin any antiques dealer, no matter how shrewd. Oh genius loci, what vandals have you fallen victim to?

The times have swept over the renowned Paliashvili Music School for Gifted Children in Tbilisi – both the old Soviet era and the new Georgian one. They tore holes into the walls but – and this is what Marita Stocker depicts in her portrait of the place, beautifully photographed by Mitja Hagelüken – they couldn’t touch the spirit of the institution. The influx of talents from all over the country is unbroken, the dreams of the future virtuosos are unbridled, and the high standards of the teachers who have grown old with “their” school are undiminished. The spark is still alive in them: of anger over an etude played diligently but indifferently, occasionally of disgust with the casual, even careless outfits of their students, of love of music and their pupils.
