Work Overview

This work for mandolin orchestra was commissioned by FAME (the Federation of Australasian Mandolin Ensembles) for performance at the Summer School in January 1988, in Sydney. It was subsequently recorded by the Sydney Mandolins, with a smaller ensemble, for release on the Jade series of Australian music compact discs (JADCD 1025). In this form it has featured in numerous broadcasts and also in the concert programmes of the Providence Mandolin Orchestra, in the USA.
The composer says, "Many people ask me about the title of the work - I decided upon this title because I like to have a starting point for my imagination, and having seen many films which focus not only upon a love triangle, but often a car chase as well, this seemed to be a subject that was waiting for me."
