Sulkhan Fyodorovich Tsintsadze (1925 - 1991) was one of Georgia's foremost composers. Tsintsadze studied the cello until 1942 with E.N. Kapelniski in Tbilisi at the Gymnasium of Music. He furthered his studies of the cello at the Conservatory of Tblisi with K. Minjar. From the years 1945 to 1953 he went to the Moscow Conservatory to study the cello with Semyon Matveyevich Kozolupov and composition with Semyon Semyonovich Bogatyryov. He began his musical career in the 1940s as the cellist in the Georgian State String Quartet. His first composition, based on Georgian folksongs and being a collection of miniatures for string quartet, was an immediate success.
