“We decided to record this performance because we felt it was a good time to document the work we’ve done so far, and also because the musicians are so good. We’ve been very lucky in Melbourne to have worked with great players; it’s a great privilege to have your music played by such fantastic musicians”.
‘One thing we always try to explore is the full dynamic range of the orchestra. Lots of people of surprised at how quiet (and loud) a big band can play, but it is going to be exciting either way. The band is dying to play with Chris.’
