Lydia Kakabadse (b9/02/1955)

Of Georgian/Russian and Greek/Austrian parentage, Lydia Kakabadse started composing in her early teens and her works fall mainly into the category of music theatre, songs, choral and chamber music. Her distinctive style combines open triads and Gothic features with Middle Eastern traits and rich melody/texture.

Lydia Kakabadse grew up in Altrincham, Cheshire, and began piano lessons at the age of five, later studying the double bass under Ida Carroll. She went on to read music at Royal Holloway College, University of London, where she was a composition pupil of Brian Dennis. She then spent several years studying, teaching and performing Greek and Middle Eastern dance, the rhythmic and melodic features of which served to widen her creative writing. This is evidenced in a number of her works, most notably the Arabian Rhapsody Suite. In recent years a selection of her works has been performed at Ely Cathedral, St John’s Smith Square in London and Norwich Cathedral.
