To mark Forest & Bird's 100th birthday, New Zealand composers and performers have collaborated to create original music inspired by the force of nature. Together, these works reflect our country's unique flora and fauna, its ancient forests, wild rivers, and vast oceans. Through the language of music, they bring nature alive while highlighting its fragility and the many threats it faces.
Each composer's music represents a region or district of New Zealand:
Andrew Perkins: Otago Ōtākou
Miriama Young: Nelson Whakatū
Peter Scholes: Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau
Patrick Shepherd: Canterbury Waitaha
Salina Fisher: Wellington Te Whanganui-a-Tara
Alexander Alford: Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau
Rob Thorne: Wellington Te Whanganui-a-Tara
Janet Jennings: Waikato
NZTrio (Amalia Hall, Ashley Brown, Somi Kim)
