Today one of the most successful and admired Georgian composers has died after a long illness, aged 84. Although Giya Kancheli is remembered with his remarkably beautiful film soundtracks, he has composed, performed and conducted many significant scores in classical music, too. And still, he has become the spirit of Tbilisi through his plain but magnificent melody "Yellow Leaves" that will forever associate with the golden autumn of the capital city where the Georgian musician was born on 10 August 1935.
