The Georgian National Anthem (''Tavisupleba'') arranged for brass quintet.On April 23, 2004, a few months after a popular revolt replaced the government and altered the national symbols, a new national anthem was adopted. The music was taken from the Georgian operas “Abesalom da Eteri” and “Daisi” by the Georgian composer Zakaria Paliashvili, and were composed into an anthem by Joseb Ketschakmadse.The new Georgian anthem was adopted by the Parliament of Georgia on 20 May 2004,[1] exactly 5 months after the resignation of President Eduard Shevardnadze in the Rose Revolution. A bill was introduced in the first plenary meeting of the 6th convocation of the Georgian Parliament on April 22, 2004. The bill to adopt Tavisupleba as the anthem was presented by the Minister of Culture Giorgi Gabashvili; in which the music was played for the deputies soon afterwards.[2] The law does not give any regulations, but refers to the corresponding Presidential Decree.Tavisupleba succeeded the old anthem Dideba zetsit kurtheuls, which was in use by the Democratic Republic of Georgia from 1918 to 1921, and again by the newly independent (from Soviet Union) Georgia from 1990 to 2004.The new anthem quickly gained popularity in contrast to its predecessor, whose lyrics were somewhat archaic and difficult to memorize.During U.S. President George W. Bush’s visit to Georgia, on May 10, 2005, when he along with President Mikheil Saakashvili was addressing tens of thousands of Georgians in Freedom Square in Tbilisi, a recording of Tavisupleba failed to play properly. Saakashvili then motioned to the choirs, and thousands in the crowd joined the singers in singing the anthem, a moment which was described by media as "the most powerful moment of the day".The music of the anthem was adapted from two Georgian operas, Abesalom da Eteri (1918) and Daisi (1923), composed by Zacharia Paliashvili, the father of the Georgian classical music genre.For more of my original music, great arrangements and all the national anthems of the world, check out my on-line stores: an anthem fast?
