It marks the beginning of composer Ann Carr-Boyd's association with Del Throsby, a direct descendant of Charles and Betsy Throsby, who built a beautiful Georgian mansion on their colonial estate in the Southern Highlands district of NSW in the 1830s. Ann, a specialist in early Australian music, plays La Bong Bong Quadrille on the harpsichord and Del, now aged 73, reflects on her ancestors and their legacy.
