Programme Note:
As a composer of that "unlistenable" genre known as contemporary music it might surprise people to know that I have a tremendous fondness and respect for the music of the 'Waltz King', Johann Strauss Jr. Pieces like 'Tales from the Vienna Woods', 'The Blue Danube' and many others are gems of musical and functional perfection.
Many may say that the waltz is a relic from a by-gone era, a social affectation of another time, alive only because of the ballroom dance set. To my mind there is an effervescent quality to that three quarter down, lift, lift of waltz time and much like Reggae, they are both gentle and powerful musical "grooves".
It is not my intent with this or any other waltz to imitate or 'ape' the great waltz classics but instead to acknowledge and build on the adamantine foundation of those works.
"Dallas Waltz" is the first of a series of waltzes in the 'Victoriana' collection.
