'Whiria' is Māori for violin, or fiddle. These seven pieces were written over a period of three or four years for more or less personal reasons. The intention, however, was always to put them together to form one substantial work. There are, therefore, a number of cross-references and some ideas are developed from piece to piece. Although there are seven pieces, the overall shape is in five parts: numbers 3, 4 and 5 form a lighter middle section to the whole work.
The seven pieces are:
- Con anima - in memory of Owen Jensen
- Burla - for Douglas Lilburn's 80th birthday
- Lacrimae - for Vedran Smailovic
- Con fuoco
