About

An outstanding cross-section of works by leading New Zealand composer Gillian Whitehead. Although this album contains mainly chamber and vocal works, Whitehead has also composed numerous large-scale works, including operas and orchestral pieces.

The review on the website "Musical Pointers":http://www.musicalpointers.co.uk notes, "Altogether a pleasing sequence showing the development of an individual composing voice. Recording values and presentation are excellent, with good background notes which tell of the importance to Whitehead of her Maori ancestry and later interest in improvisation; nowadays she exercises 'a desire to subvert the listener's expectations - constantly re-forming her musical style and technique'."
