Program Notes These simple melodies and gentle rhythms have been combined into a delightful and refreshing piece for young musicians from the pen of a young musician. James Hultgren wrote the melodies after a short holiday in Cairns in the tropical far north of Queensland, Australia. Under James' watchful eye, his father, Ralph, added bass lines and counter melodies. With careful and considered instruction from Hultgren the Younger, Gone Troppo was crafted to bring a little bit of Latin, a little bit of lilt and just a touch of loopiness to your next concert.
