Choral composer Lydia Kakabadse recording 'Ithaka' album

Journey Through Life

COMPOSER of choral and vocal works Lydia Kakabadse is recording a new album, 'Ithaka'. The word ithaka describes a person's journey through life - a journey whose destination is the richness of wisdom, knowledge and experience. The album includes two choral works which were commissioned: "I Remember" (for children's choir with piano and violin) was commissioned by Forest Preparatory School for the Bellevue Education Northern Music Festival 2016; "Odyssey" (for SATB and harp) was commissioned by the Hellenic Institute at Royal Holloway University of London in celebration of the Hellenic Institute's 25th anniversary. The vocal works are for mezzo-soprano (or alto) with piano accompaniment, to be performed by Clare McCaldin and Paul Turner. CR
