Just as Mount Cook stands aloft among many other magnificent peaks in the Southern Alps, so Lilburn's unique strength and individuality stand as a pinnacle of achievement in New Zealand music. The first and second symphonies written in the 1940's and early 50's clearly bear the resolve, energy and determination of the young Lilburn. These three historic first releases of Lilburn's symphonies with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra conducted by John Hopkins are now reissued on CD.
