Dénes Várjon

Madárdal – the title of Andrea Tarrodi’s Second Quartet – is Hungarian for birdsong. Tarrodi herself is half Swedish, half Hungarian so this Quartet features folk songs from each country, along with their birdsong. Dvořák’s famous Dumky Trio is a much-loved masterpiece with its quicksilver mood changes and succession of to-die-for tunes. Brahms described his C minor Piano Quartet as an illustration for the last chapter of Werther, the archetypal Romantic hero of German literature, who shoots himself because of his anguished love for a married woman whose husband he admires.
