One of the most beautiful sounds of the New Zealand forest is the clear, bell-like call of the Kokako. The first and last pieces in this set of five piano pieces develop various melodic ideas of this call while the remaining pieces suggest various flight patterns and man’s encroachment on the habitat of the bird.
This popular piano work in five sections has had many performances worldwide including Norway, Morocco and Paraguay.
