Folk music 'Daithi's dumka'


Folk music ‘Daithi’s dumka’ is based upon the Dumka—a Slavic dance form originally from Ukraine, although the piece is also influenced strongly by ‘Goralski’ folk music from the Polish Tatra Mountains. The piece begins with deconstructed material which finally emerges in its full form in the final part of the work. It is dedicated to Daithi Morgan, son of my dear friends Darragh Morgan (of the Smith Quartet) and pianist Mary Dullea. Folk music ‘Daithi’s dumka’ was written for the Smith Quartet and won the 2008 British Composer Award in the chamber music category.
