Andrea Tarrodi [born 1981]


Madárdal – String Quartet No 2 [2013]

1. Alleghretto – Allegro – Meno mosso

2. Adagio – Meno mosso

3. Allegretto – Allegro – Allegretto – Coda meno mosso


Madárdal was commissioned by Sveriges Radio P2 and written for the Dahlkvist Quartet. The piece is inspired by both Swedish and Hungarian folk songs. Since I am half Swedish and half Hungarian I thought that it would be an interesting way of composing a piece.


Madárdal consists of three movements. The first movement is built on fragments from Romany/Hungarian melodies and gestures. The Adagio is based on two specific Swedish folk songs; Emigrantvisa and Polska från Medelpad. In the third and last movement, the Hungarian/Romany and Swedish folk songs meet. Throughout the piece you also may hear both Hungarian and Swedish bird species. Madárdal is the Hungarian word for birdsong, hence the title.
