The Cadenza Contemporary Orchestra has given a breathtaking
concert at International Mugham Center, Azernews reports.
Since 2016, the Cadenza Contemporary Orchestra has been actively
participating in both local and international festivals.
The orchestra aims at preserving the traditions of modern
musical performance in Azerbaijan and developing the traditions of
modern musical ensembles created in the country.
The artistic director of the orchestra is Composer Turkar
The concert program, titled Epitaf, included pieces of music by
the son of outstanding composer Gara Garayev, professor of the
Moscow Conservatory, well-known composer, People’s Artist of
Azerbaijan Faraj Garayev and his students Elmir Mirzoyev, Aliya
Mammadova and Ali Alizada.
The orchestra performed Elmir Mirzoyev’s music piece Epitaf
dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the Khojaly genocide and Aliya
Mammadova’s composition String Quartet.
The concert was also remembered for Mirkhalid Mammadzada’s flute
performance The Pain of One Plane Tree, written by Ali Alizada back
in 1988 and not heard from the stage for many years.
The musical composition was accompanied by the sound of the Baku
wind. It was an elegy of the struggle of a lone tree with a storm
that bent but did not break and defeated the squally wind.
