While many great composers did not take into account the musical education of their descendants in their work; there is explicit children’s and educational literature from others. Among the best-known examples are certainly Bach; Mendelssohn or Schumann (Album for the Young). The Georgian pianist Giorgi Iuldashevi quotes from the latter work on his debut album under the name “Simplicity”; with which the young pianist dedicates himself to piano literature for children. Beginning with his compatriot Nodar Gabunia and his work “From the Diary of a Pupil” (1977); excerpts from “For Children; Vol. 1” by Béla Bartók; from György Kurtág’s “Játékok”; from the “Children’s Music”; Op. 65 by Sergei Prokofiev as well as from the “Children’s Album” Op. 39 by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky are played. This selection of these highly varied; simple miniatures for children; far from any banality; reveals what Johann Wolfgang von Goethe; among others; stated: “In the restriction the master shows himself”.
