Since the Cadence Ensemble’s premiere performance in 2004, the group has quickly become one of the leading and most popular music groups of Armenia.

Initially performing the works of Argentine composer, Astor Piazzolla the ense mble has expanded its repertoire to encorporate contemporary European and Armenian composers. Under the leadership of pianist, Armen Babakhanian, the ensemble have enjoyed international success. Most recently the ensemble have given concerts in Paris, London and Brussels.

 

"A very classy collection of Armenian folk-derived music put over expertly with flair and controlled schmaltz, never quite over the top. We listened to it straight through with pleasure and growing admiration.

The clever chamber music arrangement of the Sabre Dance to end left no feeling that we were being short-changed without an orchestra; indeed we played it through again as an encore.

It took five recording days at Abbey Road in London (October 2007); the recording quality is of the highest and there are no lapses in the feeling of spontaneity."

Peter Grahame Woolf
