Programme Notes

Matthew Hindson Little Chrissietina's Magic Fantasy Chrissietina's Magic Fantasy was initially conceived as a piece for solo violin, using a somewhat 'rockabilly' style of music. However, it then developed into virtuosic work for two violins, using elements of both techno and death-metal styles of popular music. The piece was premiered in November 1994 by Glenn Murray and Christine Myers, both of whom perform on this recording. This piece was selected as the Australian Young Composers entry to the 1995 Bangkok Music Festival and Asian-Composers League Conference. It has since become an extremely popular piece with violinists, being performed many times by a large range of performers in Australia and around the world. In a recent review of a performance by the Morpheus Ensemble in Perth, the reviewer from The West Australian commented: "This is a work that deserves to become a standard piece in the pitifully small repertoire for two violins". Little Chrissietina's Magic Fantasy is one of the most popular works written by Matthew Hindson. Matthew Hindson
