The NZSO-SOUNZ Readings were a collaborative project which aimed to increase the performance of orchestral music by New Zealand composers, which began in November 1998. SOUNZ and the NZSO generally held the Readings twice a year in Wellington. Between 1998 and 2011, more than 70 works by nearly 50 New Zealand composers have been included in the NZSO-SOUNZ Readings project, about a third of which have now received further performances or been released on CD.
This form of the NZSO-SOUNZ Readings was changed in 2011, becoming the NZSO-SOUNZ-RNZC Recordings. You can read more about the ‘new Readings’ and the works that have been recorded under the new agreement between the NZSO, SOUNZ and RNZC here
Fonterra’s Mad(rigal) by Chris Adams was performed at the NZSO-SOUNZ Readings in September 2009.
