Wood Works – Sønderho Bridal Trilogy – Part III

/ Danish String Quartet / Traditional
In stock


The Sønderho Bridal Trilogy is still being used for weddings on the Danish island of Fanø. Fanø was traditionally a seafaring society, and the women had to accept the fact that their husbands would be gone sailing for several months at a time each year. This reality has played into the wedding rituals of the island where even today young marrying couples drink three shots of alcohol, one sweet, one sour and one bitter, representing the trials and tribulations experienced in married life. Representing the bitter element of marriage, this is the third and final part of the Sønderho Bridal Trilogy. Inspired by the special tonal colors that these melodies contain, our good friend Nikolaj Busk has made a very contemplative arrangement that should be played in a slow and quasi-improvisatory way.

The Danish String Quartet is a classical string quartet with a passion for Nordic folk music. They’ve brought their unique arrangements of Scandinavian folk tunes to the concert stage and recorded them on a highly successful CD. Now, due to popular demand, sheet music of these meticulously crafted arrangments is being made available for the first time in a carefully prepared edition. We hope you enjoy it.
