The music of Lydia Kakabadse is infused with the traditions of her family roots in Russia, Georgia, Austria and Greece and especially through the influence of Greek Orthodox chant. Her use of the so-called 'Arabic scale' also gives a touch of exotic piquancy to her chamber music. The pieces here are scored for the 'alternative string quartet' of violin, viola, cello and double bass and include two songs featuring mezzo-soprano Jess Dandy. A varied collection of works which we expect to garner as much praise as her recent choral CD (Cantica Sacra - DA 5135)
