NEW ZEALAND PRESENTS - NZ COMPOSERS' SERIES - COPY CDR2 (see also ID 100431)
This is a series of recitals featuring NZ composers and artists which seems to have originated at 1ZB. Composers were invited to contribute their own works - hundreds were received - and they were performed in the studio, in front of an audience, and recorded live.
The recitals were part of the New Zealand Presents series.
In the listings below the composer's name is given first followed by the title, then performers.
