- SOUNZwrite NCEA Level Two - Whitehead, Psathas, Hamilton
- Kit - education resource
Revised for NCEA Level 2, this SOUNZwrite education contains:
Rakiura by David Hamilton,
Waiting for the Aeroplane by John Psathas and
Lullaby for Matthew by Gillian Whitehead
Lullaby for Matthew is a short ‘romantic’ piece for piano (about Grade 5) by Gillian Whitehead, one of Aotearoa’s most experienced composers, explores the variation form as a compositional tool.
John Psathas’ evocative piano work Waiting for the Aeroplane provides a basis for the study of Greek music and jazz. Two commercial recordings of Lullaby for Matthew and Waiting for the Aeroplane are available from SOUNZ and both tracks can also be purchased as downloads (for SOUNZ Online Members).
David Hamilton is one of New Zealand’s foremost choral composers. His Rakiura, for SATB choir, is based on a play by Eileen Philipp and tells, in the style of a Noh drama, the story of a Japanese woman found living in a cave on Stewart Island. A recording is included on the SOUNZwrite choral CD, which also includes Hamilton’s Lux Aeterna for comparative listening, as well as works by Jenny McLeod and Helen Fisher.
SCORES FOR ALL THE WORKS MENTIONED ARE AVAILABLE IN CONJUNCTION WITH THIS GUIDE THROUGH SOUNZ.
Please note that the original accompanying CDs, which were funded by APRA, are in short supply. These are only given to schools who purchase the complete set of SOUNZwrite NCEA Guides.
