Description

'Folk Songs' is a three movement work for solo viola and chamber orchestra consisting of flute, bassoon and strings. Each of its movements draws upon folk music from different countries. The first movement draws upon a Welsh folk tune whose words translate approximately in English as ‘When I was a Shepherd’. The middle movement is a fugue whose subject is based on more lively music, the folk song Ajde Jano, originating from southern Serbia or Macedonia, the words essentially serving as an exhortation to dance. Music for the final movement is derived from an old Hungarian folk song,
probably medieval: Azt gondoltam eső esik, Pedig a szemem könnyezik (I thought it rains, but my eyes are wet with tears...). The work was first performed in the Bioskop Balkan Hall, Belgrade, Serbia by the violist Saša Mirković and Ensemble Metamorphosis on 11 December 2022.
