Khatia Buniatishvili's new album, "Motherland," is an intimate quest encompassing solo piano works from Bach to Pärt and from Brahms to Kancheli, in which the themes of longing for home, the merriment of a folk dance and the eternal cycle of growth and decay are apparent. These are quiet, dreamy pieces, most of them not written for the concert hall, but expressing a personal journey for peace and a protected place. Spanning a broad stylistic and historical range, Motherland juxtaposes the happy lightness of a "Slavonic Dance" by Dvo ák and the melancholy of Grieg's lyrical "Homesickness" and contrasts the elegant gaiety of Mendelssohn's "Song without Words" (Op. 67/2) with the graceful introspection of Liszt's "Lullaby." Classics of the Romantic piano repertoire such as Chopin's Étude in C-sharp minor (Op. 25/7) and Brahms's "Intermezzo" (Op. 117/2) are embedded between Bach's cantata "Sheep May Safely Graze" and Arvo Pärt's musical dedication "For Alina."
Khatia Buniatishvili has been described by The Independent as "the young Georgian firebrand." At the age of only 26 years, this Tblisi-born pianist has already achieved an exceptional maturity of interpretation and a distinctive artistic approach that make her playing unmistakable. She made her Carnegie Hall debut in 2008 and has played with many famous orchestras around the world including the Israel Philharmonic with Kent Nagano, the San Francisco Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, Munich Philharmonic and the Orchestre de Paris under Paavo Järvi.

AllMusic Review by Blair Sanderson
As she has demonstrated in her critically acclaimed albums of the keyboard music of Liszt and Chopin, Georgian pianist Khatia Buniatishvili is a stunning virtuoso with impressive skills and her dynamic playing compels listening. However, for her 2014 Sony album, Motherland, she finds subtle expressions in her favorite character pieces, and none of them could be considered showstoppers. Most of the selections reflect calm and intimate moods, typified by Bach's Sheep May Safely Graze, Tchaikovsky's Autumn Song, Debussy's Clair de lune, and Ravel's Pavane pour une infante défunte, while the liveliest pieces, which include Mendelssohn's Song Without Words in F sharp minor, György Ligeti's Musica Ricercata No. 7, Dvorák's Slavonic Dance in E minor, and Scarlatti's Sonata in E major, offer rather modest displays of technique. Instead of dazzling her listeners, Buniatishvili is putting forward her personal, private side in this understated program, and the key to her selections is the sense of yearning that these pieces evoke. The most passionate outpouring of emotion comes in her own arrangement of Vaguiorko ma, a Georgian folk song that surely must hold a special place in her emotional world. Because this is a gentle and poignant album, listeners may find it is best appreciated in a quiet space with few distractions.
