British born composer Lydia Kakabadse, grew up in a quiet market town in Cheshire, and has been composing music since the young age of thirteen. Working as a solicitor in previous years, Lydia has a talent for writing both chamber and choral music and her works include songs, string quartets, musical dramas, a cantata, song cycles for unaccompanied male vocal choir and a concert Requiem Mass. Drawing inspiration from a diverse range of influences such as Middle Eastern Music, mythology, nineteenth century poets, Latin Literature and talent for dancing, Lydia has concocted a potent five-piece album which is both majestic and chimerical. When listening, one can hear the distinct allusion to Middle Eastern music, which is brilliantly interwoven within the classical themes.
