The two main themes of Youth of Auckland were originally written by the composer as sound tracks for television commercials, and reworked and developed for this overture. The influence of film music is very evident in the orchestral scoring, with long sweeping melodies visualizing the wide open spaces and the modern rhythms of today's 'pop' music.
Youth of Auckland has been recorded several times for CD and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra's version is played regularly on New Zealand National Radio.
This concert overture was commissioned by the Auckland Secondary Schools' Youth Orchestra for performance in 1986.
