"Love to love your strings, baby" is an affectionate homage to disco strings. I've taken inspiration from Barry White's Love Unlimited Orchestra, from the New York, Philadelphia and many other symphony orchestras, and the many great arrangers who had a role in developing the disco sound. My piece takes motifs and fragments from the golden era of disco and weaves them together with my own original themes to present a fantasy montage. The title refers, of course, to the 1975 Donna Summer hit "Love to love you, baby."
Instrumentation: String orchestra.
Duration: 9 min.
Dedication note: Dedicated to Camerata of St John's
Written for: Camerata of St John's
Commission note: Commissioned with funds provided by Australia Council.
