This is a fascinating collection of material covering everything from New Zealand music publishing initiatives by Charles Begg & Company to Lili Kraus playing Beethoven. "The articles, commentaries and reviews that appeared in the journals and newspapers of the later 1940s give a vivid picture of the liveliness of the musical scene in those years when New Zealand was beginning to forge an independent path in music." Allan Thomas (editor)
