âRONDINO PASTORALEâ JADCD 1113
Music by Australian composers: ERIC GROSS, ANN CARR-BOYD, DEREK STRAHAN. MICHAEL SMETANIN, ROBERT ALLWORTH.
Total duration: 51.18
This CD is characteristic of Jade CD productions as it contains music written in a wide variety of styles and instrumentations, from vocal music with chamber ensemble backing, through works for solo and ensemble mandolins, solo piano to a Jazz Fusion ensemble.
âTrialogueâ and âThe Maidâs Lamentâ (2006) by Eric Gross are both works for mezzo-soprano with accompaniments drawn from varying combinations of flute, harp viola and claves, and were recording in Illinois, USA by the ensemble âPINOTAGE, who also play a flute and harp setting of the title track.
Also from Eric Gross comes the delightful â5 Simple Pieces for Piano (1989), a gift to young performers, played artfully by Australian pianist Ray Lemond.
Mandolin works are Michael Smetaninâs âStingâ (1987) for solo mandolin, Robert Allworthâs â3 Movements for mandolin Duoâ (1990) in religious mode, and Ann Carr-Boydâs âFandangoâ for mandolin ensemble.
Derek Strahanâs âFree Spiritâ is a melodic, adagio piece drawn from a Jazz Fusion Suite, and performed by top Australian jazz musicians, with a classical cellist.
The CD cover features a photograph taken by Derek Strahan from a distance through bare tree branches of Uluru, the great rock formation in Central Australia.

ERIC GROSS (b. 1926) Tracks 1, 2 & 3
Track 1 â RONDINO PASTORALE op.33 (1962) 3â15â
This is the original version of this composition for Flute and Harp. This composition has also been arranged for a variety of instrumental combinations which can maintain the pensive and nostalgic mood which is created by the integration of the solo melodic line with the accompaniment thus sustaining the gentle flow of the music.
âEnsemble âPINOTAGEâ (USA) Janice MacDonald -Flute/Alison Attar-Harp
Track 2 â TRIALOGUE op.296A (2006) 2â58â
This work for Flute, Mezzo-Soprano/Claves and Viola contains material re-arranged from the composerâs 4 DIALOGUES FOR FLUTE AND CLARINET (1980), at the request of the Ensemble PINOTAGE for a performance in the USA. The style and texture enable the performers to demonstrate exemplary musicianship and technical expertise and in this musical discussion the voice makes its contribution in a vocalise style and the vocaliste also adds the occasional percussive sound of claves.
Ensemble âPINOTAGEâ (USA) Janice MacDonald -Flute / Claudia Lasareff-Mironoff-Viola / Julia Bentley- Mezzo - Soprano and Claves
Track 3 â THE MAIDâS LAMENT op.293 (2006) 3â40â
The poem, by W. S. Landor was originally set for Soprano and Piano. The music endeavours to follow and even expand the plaintive, meditative mood and atmosphere created by the text. In response to several requests from singers, this song was transcribed for Mezzo Soprano voice and piano and in 2006, a request from the USA based ensemble PINOTAGE caused this arrangement to be created especially for them; the piano was replaced by a harp and the Mezzo Soprano voice is here also supported by the addition of Flute and Viola. These additional instruments facilitated the creation of a very gentle and somewhat forlorn overall impression. This new arrangement was premiered by PINOTAGE in October 2006 at a televised and broadcast concert at Wheaton College, Illinois, USA, which was also recorded for this compact disc release. ) 3â40â

This is a set of five simple pieces of various degrees of difficulty, intended for beginners and is meant to appeal to children of all ages. The complete set was written for the London based Australian pianist Sally Mays, for pedagogic use. Performers are introduced to a variety of styles, which include a very simple and basic, as in LONELY DESERT and ALONE AND SAD; a jazz style is used in SYDNEY HARBOUR BLUES and LITTLE JAZZEROO (with emphasis on left hand figuration) and there is also the use of twelve-tone material which is employed in MEANDERING IN SERIES to create a gentle and ingratiatingly wistful atmosphere. This recording by RAY LEMOND was made in 1992 at 2MBS-FM (Sydney) by sound engineer Denis Eddy.

MICHAEL SMETANIN (b. 1958)
Track 9 â STING (1987) 7â00â
This short piece for Solo Mandolin was composed in November 1987, soon after the large orchestral work BLACK SNOW. It is a relaxation of the dark emotion of its antecedents, but maintains a brittle tension created by its swift and translucent passages performed with an unusual plectrum technique. STING was given its premiere perfomance by PAUL HOOPER at the Broadwalk Studio of the Sydney Opera House in September 1988 amd recorded at Studios 301 (Sydney) 30/01/1990. )

(To 37251 who one day will realize that to be free is to be alone) Free Spirit is a movement from a Jazz Fusion Suite unheard in public till now. The Suite was composed during a period of personal turmoil. The dedication of FREE SPIRIT may be deciphered by reference to a system of numerology cited in Dennis Wheatleyâs novel of the supernatural âTHE DEVIL RIDES OUTâ. )
