Programme Notes

Siegfried Interlude No. 4 was commissioned by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra for first performance at the launch of their 1999 Season. At the time, the SSO viola section was made up exclusively by women, and since the SSO were going to perform Die Walkure the following year, it seemed fitting that an arrangement of one of the best known parts from that opera, "The Ride of the Valkyries", was done for this section. So whilst not technically part of Siegfried, it nevertheless forms part of the Siegfried Interlude series. The arrangement takes into account what sort of things the Valkyries might get up to (i.e. going clubbing) if they were around today!
