Maestro Tchitchinadze is one of the most beloved artists in Georgia. He studied the piano under the tutelage of V. Gabrielov and I. Naumova in the Gnessin State Higher School of Music in Moscow, then with E. Rusishvili in the Tbilisi Conservatory.  Soon afterwards he extended his education to include lyric works and symphonic conducting, learning at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg and winning the International Conductors’ Competition in Tokyo in 2000.

During his short career he has already conducted many Georgian orchestras, as well as ensembles from all over the world. He recently had the opportunity to extend his collaboration with Sinfonia Varsovia, which he conducted in the Netherlands, Warsaw, Bilbao, Minsk and Japan. With the ensemble, he made his successful debut last summer at the La Roque d’Anthéron festival. In March 2011 he directed the Het Orkest van het Oosten in Enschede, Netherlands and in 2012 he commenced his collaboration with the Dutch Radio Philharmonic Orchestra.

Fascinated by opera, he embarked on his opera career in 1998, conducting a gala concert during the International Opera Festival in Tbilisi. In 2000 he was appointed professor and conductor at the Tbilisi Conservatory and since 2004 he has held the position of artistic director and conductor at the Tbilisi Opera and Ballet, with which he completed a concert tour of Israel in 2008.
