About

Lyell Cresswell describes his work Ara Kopikopiko, which takes its title from the Maori word for Labyrinth, as a concerto for orchestra in which the instruments and ideas are treated as tesserae in a mosaic, assembled to catch the light at different angles. At its premiere the work was introduced by the composer and broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
