Taking its name from Charlie Chaplin's 1931 film, violinist Lisa Batiashvili's new album "City Lights" crosses genres and mixes memories, places, sounds and music to powerful and haunting effect. "City Lights" includes 11 pieces that represent the most important cities in Lisa's life. "It doesn't matter where you go or how far away you end up being, you always have a special connection to places that have become part of you," Lisa said. The album also includes a suite based on Charlie Chaplin's own music for "City Lights" and his other films. BELOW: Lisa Batiashvili plays "City Memories," by Chaplin/Daniderff, arranged by Nikoloz Rachveli.
