“This album is a true self indulgence. I wrote each piece for my wife and partner Jacqui.
I think Lovesong features some of the most beautiful melodies I’ve ever written. It was also a time when I had returned to my original musical passion – playing the guitar – so there is a lot of guitar work throughout the recording. To bring the strong, emotive quality out of each piece, I selected bass flutes, gentle strings and piano.
Whether you use this album to help set a romantic mood – as many listeners have told me they indeed to – or whether you simply enjoy it as a contemporary instrumental CD, I sincerely hope that you sense the honesty and gentleness that was put in to every note.
Tony O’Connor was one of Australia’s most popular composers of instumental music. His albums are cherished by listeners of all ages, all around the world.
There is a certain magic woven into every one of Tony’s recordings – a magic that invites the listener on a musical adventure. A haunting flute calls to you, gentle sounds pave the way, and a symphony of melodies guide you on an inner journey.”
Recorded at Studio Horizon, Remastered July 2001.
