In 2004 five outstanding Armenian instrumentalists formed the Cadence Ensemble with the intention to promote the music of Astor Piazzolla. Following an enthusiastic response by the public and press, they continually expanded their repertoire and rapidly developed into what they are known for today: one of the world’s premier ensembles performing original works and arrangements by classical and contemporary European, Russian, Armenian, and American composers including world music and pop while maintaining an affinity for Piazzolla. The ensemble has given acclaimed performances in numerous countries around the world in prestigious venues such as the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires and the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg.
