    This composition is a lament to two staesman of the Māori world Apira Mahuika of Ngāti Porou and Tama Huata of Ngāti Kahungunu. Both men were giants in their respective areas, governance, tribal politics cultral revival language revitalisation, Treaty settlements they both died within days of each other. This compostion also talks about how Pākeha law clashes with Māori lore with the James Takamore case where his whanau took his body and returned it to James ancestral home Whakatohea and the widow laid charges to have her husbands remains dug up and returned to Christchuch. I thought it appropriate to protest about this being the Te Matatini World Championship Kapa Haka Competition was held in Christchurch March 2015. This composition was performed by Ōpōtiki Mai Tawhiti.

  • host for SATB choir

    de Castro-Robinson, Eve (2015-06-01)

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    Eve de Castro-Robinson: composer of the original composition Robert Wiremu: conductor I was delighted to be asked to write host for Karen Grylls’ Auckland Chamber Choir. My first choral work written at her request was Chaos of delight III, a vocal soundscape of avian sonorities for women’s voices. host is also abstract, based not on a text, but on the Vowel Clock used to train choral singers. The whole work is based on the note A and its upper partials and as the singers move around the space, various harmonics from the chord are heard. The title refers to the movement of birds in formation, often called a host. Commissioned by Robert Wiremu for Karen Grylls's 30 year anniversary conducting the Auckland Chamber Choir

  • No. 3 from Nine Short Pieces for piano, an arrangement of the Douglas Lilburn piano piece

    de Castro-Robinson, Eve; Lilburn, DG (2015-09-03)

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    Stroma: performers Hamish McKeich: conductor The third of Lilburn's Nine Short Pieces has a whimsical, almost cartoonish feel to it, as well as a Latin swing, it's syncopated, suggestive and insinuating, with nudging little statement-phrases answered by low punctuations. It's quasi-humorous, repetitive, insistent and, ironically, very restrained - vintage Lilburn. I've heightened the qualities I hear in it, and exaggerated them, since to me it's crying out to be released from its rather reserved and sparse setting. It seemed to beg colourful, distinctive instrumentation, a clear texture which is enriched where needed, and I've added characterful percussion and sonic touches such as a flexatone and the vocal ahhs and oohhs to release its jazzy quality. To me, it's in Lilburn's piano oeuvre that he reveals his true self. Composers understand that they are laid bare in pianistic utterance, and this is particularly evident in DGL. If you listen say, to the first of the Three Sea Changes, the material itself is extremely economical, but its emotional impact is immediate. Few works speak to me so eloquently of NZ, as much of DGL's piano music. Despite DGL being rather cool and terse on the surface, the interactions I had with him exposed a warm and wry side. There's an irony in that the first thing he ever said to me was after hearing a student work of mine played in St Andrew on the Terrace in the mid-80s: "Yes, I heard your piece - a bit too intellectual for me". I offer up this arrangement as a non-intellectual birthday gift from a fellow-Scorpio, whose birthday is a week after his.
