A NZ International Festival event.
UK-based Kiwi pianist Stephen De Pledge returns to New Zealand to play a solo concert. The centrepiece is Landscape Preludes, a suite of 12 works commissioned from New Zealand's most renowned composers. While several have received performances on their own before, this will be the first occasion on which all 12 have been heard together.
[June 2008: in cooperation with the NZ International Arts Festival 2008, Radio NZ Concert and Aoraki Polytechnic, videos of an interview with Stephen Depledge plus his performance of the 12 Landscape Preludes in this concert event (some including interviews with the composers) are available on the "SOUNZ channel of YouTube":http://www.youtube.com/user/nzmusicsounz .]
