Description:

Concert Overture - Youth of Auckland

This concert overture was commissioned by the Auckland Secondary Schools' Youth Orchestra for performance in 1986. The two main themes 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.

Rhapsody for Accordion and Orchestra
This work was commissioned by Auckland accordionist, Harley Jones, for performance in New York, August 1988. It was premiered in Auckland in 1987 and in the first two years received 36 performances worldwide. This work combines the sensitivity, expressive and distinct tone colours of the accordion, with the full power of a symphony orchestra.

Three Songs for Choir and Orchestra
These three songs were originally composed in 1978 with piano accompaniment for an Auckland Teacher's College Choir.
Man that is Born of Woman
The text is taken from the Book of Job and used by Ibsen in his Peer Gynt
The Day of Aranga (The Awakening)
Mervyn Thompson wrote the words.
I will light a Fire
One of the many songs from a collaboration with Iyrist Rae Prowse. Their most popular work is the Children's Operetta - Cats of Ponsonby.

Rondo for Trombone
The Auckland Symphony Orchestra commissioned this work in 1938 for John Russell, principal trombonist with the orchestra. The Rondo is written in a melodic, rhythmical style with the orchestral scoring strongly influenced by film music.

Concert Overture - Highbury Grove
This concert Overture was composed in 1968 while the composer was living in London. It was named after the large comprehensive Boy's School in the North East of London, where the composer taught for several years.

The music portrays his feelings about the the school, the pupils and the staff and about this particular part of London with its playing fields and parks, the crowded streets, the traffic and the underground. It was first performed in London in 1967.

Ka Puke Maeroero (The Southern Alps)
This is the composer's impression of the natural splendour of the shining glaciers amid high mountains and primeval rainforest, tranquil lakes and rushing rivers - in fact all that makes up the South Western region of New Zealand.

This symphonic tone poem is based on three 12-note tone rows. This work is not entirely typical of the composer's style that tends to be more expansive with lush scoring. It was composed in 1979 and first performed in 1981.
