Eve de Castro-Robinson - Cries of Auckland

From Music Alive, 10:40 pm on 1 July 2016

Eve de Castro-Robinson writes of her work for vocal sextet and string quartet: "Cries of Auckland is based on calls and chants from the concrete and steel canyon of Auckland's Queen St. Beginning with the penetrating calls of the Auckland Star boys selling their papers, I traverse several decades of protest marches in which I have taken part."

Performed by a vocal sextet and a string quartet conducted by Alex Taylor … singers Clare Hood, Amy Jansen, Stephanie Dow, Nathan Hauraki, Ben Kubiak, and Callum Blackmore, with Elizabeth Holowell & Stella Kim (violin), Julie Park (viola), Martin Roberts (cello, drum).
