ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jade CDs are widely heard on national and fine music stations throughout Australia, and are recognised as a valuable resource by educational authorities as being uniquely representative of the work of Australian composers. They are manufactured in limited runs of 500 and, as stocks are therefore limited, may be regarded as collectors' items! All Jade CD covers are distinctive. Many of the early Jade CD covers (like this one) display stylish black & white photography by Nicolas van der Waarden. Most Jade CDs have an anthology format and include works by several composers. It's great to have these CDs on offer for a wider audience at CD Baby. This one is now available as digital download for album or tracks

"TWIN TOWERS" JADCD 1055

Works by: Dulcie Holland, Eric Gross, Ann Carr-Boyd, Colin Brumby, Derek Strahan, Lawrence Bartlett, Robert Allworth. Duration: 69.26.

No, this CD is not related to the terrorist attacks of 9/11, as it was released in 1995, and the piece of music with that title is named after a landmark suspension bridge in Sydney, Australia. However, a later Jade CD is dedicated to the victims of that event, and it is titled "American Dream", after a piece by Ann Carr-Boyd for flute & harpsichord, which is heard on this CD. This piece was written after the composer attended a meeting at a large theatre in Hartford, Connecticut, where a congregation of about 3,000 people was commemorsating Martin Luther King Day with prayers, orations and singing. The piece was re-released on that later CD with other new material. "American Dream" JADCD1090 is available at CD Baby.

Two bridges inspired music for this CD. In addition to Dulcie Holland's "Twin Towers", the new Glebe Island Suspension Bridge in Sydney inspired pieces by Gross, Carr-Boyd and Allworth, and its photo adorns the CD cover. Gross also contributes his stirring "Fanfopus" by Gross, played by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra conducted by Patrick Thomas. More symphonic delight from the Slow Movement of Colin Brumby's Flute Concerto.

The marine theme continues with "Fairy Penguins" (Holland) and "Fur Seals" (Bartlett). Instrumentation ranges from solo piano to flute & string trio for Strahan's neo-baroque "In The Attic", which was written in 1968 as a playful exercise in period style. To record it, professional equipment was placed in the upstairs room of a North Sydney house, hence it can be said to have received its First performance "In The Attic." The gifted performaners soon after recorded several sessions of film music for Strahan in more conventional vernues, and the results of those sessions can be heard on two other Jade CDs available at CD Baby!

"Trans Australia Suite No. 1" (1968) is on "BEST OF AUSTRALIAN CLASSICS", JADCD 1065 and "Trans Australia Suite No. 2" is on "MUSIC FOR A CHAMPAGNE BREAKFAST" VOLUME 2, JADCD 1075 The music was a written for "Wheels Across Australia", a film documentary about the adventurous Leyland Brothers' transit of Australia by 4-wheel drive. It is also available as a complete Suite on "Celebrating Australia" on the Revolve label RDS 007.

Listen to it for the Holland
Australian composer Dulcie Holland is well featured on this disc and it is for this reason you should consider buying this CD. All the composers represented are great but Holland stands out.
