6 According to the CD liner notes, the Seven Folk Dances were written and performed in Paris in 1916. Yet 1916 is a highly unlikely date for this composition, as many scholars identify 1915 as the year after which Komitas ‘never picked up a pen again’ (Holslag, Transgressional Consequences, 189). The cycle most likely dates to 1906, when Komitas travelled to Pairs to give concerts and lectures.
