Presenter of New Horizons
William Dart’s voice will be familiar to most Radio New Zealand Concert listeners. He’s one of Concert’s busiest contributors, currently producing 30 or so New Horizons programmes each year as well as a solid handful of Composer of the Week, The Critic’s Chair and Appointment programmes. New Horizons can now be heard on Thursday's at 7:30pm during Nights with Bryan Crump on RNZ National.
William is a freelance commentator on music and visual art. He’s the classical music critic for the New Zealand Herald, edits New Zealand’s foremost visual art magazine Art New Zealand, is the founding editor of Music in New Zealand (which ran for 40 issues between 1988 and 2002), and is occasionally still to be seen playing the piano, accompanying a singer or young instrumentalist in recital.
As a composer, his work is mostly for the theatre and includes the musicals Songs to the Judges and Give Us a Kiss.
