Each of the Light on New Zealand Composers programmes in December explores a unique theme. Tonight's programme features works that compare and contrast Australian and New Zealand’s indigenous instruments: Helen Fisher's Pounamu and Sean O'Boyle's Didgeridoo Concerto.
December is the third month that 3MBS is featuring the new sounds coming out of New Zealand. The segment written and produced by Eva Light is aired weekly during every second month on Tony Thomas’ Contemporary Visions programme at 8pm Tuesdays allowing listeners to hear works they may not otherwise have had the chance to enjoy. Alan Wells, NZ musicologist, is co-creator of the series.
Eva Light welcomes your comments.
