You can listen to the title track "Babinda" with Don on alto flute and Julian Lee on piano with the Sydney String Plus Orchestra.
"I think of Heinz Steinmann's paintings more in terms of a musical instrument than a set of words, the alto flute; it has a particularly warm, lush sound that is well suited to reflect the dream like quality of his art." DON BURROWS
The "Babinda Trilogy" 3CD set are with Orchestra, Duets and Quintet with Don Burrows, George Golla on guitar, Julian Lee, piano, Craig Scott, bass and David Jones, drums.
