Written twenty years after the formation of what was, effectively, New Zealand's National Orchestra, begun in October 1946 under the leadership of Vincent Aspey. This book also documents the story of its precursor, formed in 1939 by the (then) National Broadcasting Service, under the direction of English violinist Maurice Clare.
