In 2004 five Armenian instrumentalists — Varazdat Khachumyan, Violin; Hakob Jaghatspanyan, Guitar; Meruzhan Yeganyan, Accordion; Sofi Mikayelyan, Piano; and Gurgen Amiryan, Contrabass — formed Cadence Ensemble to promote the music of Argentine tango composer Astor Piazzolla. Since then, they have expanded their repertoire and rapidly developed into 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.
