Kenneth Young

Presented by Kenneth Young

Resound is a venture between Radio New Zealand Concert and SOUNZ, the Centre for New Zealand Music, funded by NZ On Air.

The aim is to unlock recordings of significant compositions by New Zealand composers from our archive. In a series, we hear from composer and conductor Kenneth Young, a member of the Resound artistic panel. He puts compositions into context, with personal commentary on the composers, and in-depth analysis of the music.

During a series, Resound airs on RNZ Concert at 10:00pm on Fridays, on Sound Lounge.

Full list of works featured

Background

Recordings date back as far as fifty years ago, with works that were played on air with a license for two broadcasts. The re-licencing efforts of the Resound project have secured permissions from composers and performers to allow listeners to enjoy these important historic recordings once again.

Over the last few years our New Zealand recordings have been gradually transferred into digital formats, so that we can  re-broadcast select works and also offer them to listeners on our website.
