Music by Ann Carr-Boyd
One of the most rewarding things about writing music is the opportunity to meet and work with some of the most interesting people in the world. All the people and performers listed on these CDs (and many more who unfortunately can’t all be fitted on to two CDs) have enriched my life with their musicality and their warmth of friendship. The years I spent with the Sydney Mandolins in the 1980s and onwards were just wonderful. I wrote at least 12 different works for them - and all were rehearsed to the most high point of performance and interpretation. Little did we know at the time that Fandango would become so well known - but we have all been happy to see Fandango launch out into the world with a whole adventurous life of its own.
