Gammel Bruremarsj

"Wedding March from Gudbrandsdal" as played by Jan Garbarek at the Norwegian crown prince's wedding in August 2001. Garbarek performed in D major. I transposed to F major for the sake of my taragot. Take care of the rhythm changes!

"Det koster ej for megen strid" is the tune for a Danish hymn. It is composed by Th. Laub in 1913. It is recorded by Morten Carlsen on taragot on a New Jungle Orchestra recording "Live at Birdland" in 2003. It is meant to be played slowly and freely. See www.newjungleorchestra.com


Baggbölebäckens klagan

Baggbölebäckens klagan

"Baggbölebäckens klagan" is a waltz in traditional style from the north of Sweden. It is composed by Kjell-Åke Sandström and recorded 1978 by the folk group Burträskara (Oktober OSLP 525). It is written in memory of a tamed waterfall called Baggbölebäcken which now is forced to deliver its water to a power plant at the river Umeå.

From the cover notes: "En kompis till oss, dragspelaren Kjell-Åke Sandström från Umeå, skrev den här låten till en kompositionstävling 1973 i samband med Fallens Dag vid Stornorr-forsens kraftverk i Umeälven. Denna dag varje år släpper man vatten i den annars torrlagda forsen. Då får man en föreställning om vilken skönhet og naturkraft som man har tagit strypgrepp på. Låten är sorglig men de fyre första durtakterna i andra reprisen är tillägnade denna dag när vattenmassorna får sin - tillfälliga - frihed.


Louise

Louise

"Louise" is written by the Faroese composer Jens Christian Svabo (1746-1824). It is recorded by Per and Lars Lilholt on "Next Stop Svabonius" in 1998. The original is in G major, and I transposed to F major for the sake of the taragot. Take care to breathe at every eight bars, or you may be in trouble!
