Symphony No. 6 is a meditation on love, death, and the afterlife. From the plaintive saxophone solo at the start to the mysterious flights of spirits in the third movement and the grieving of the finale, this symphony takes the listener on an emotional journey. As personal as Symphony No. 6 is for Anthony, the work is not specifically programmatic. The titles of the movements act as cues for developing the listener’s own thoughts and reactions.

Anthony is delighted that the NZSO and Hamish McKeich agreed to record the symphony; the performance is truly stunning. The album also includes Anthony’s Underwater Music, an older work recorded by the NZSO in 2015 in conjunction with RNZ Concert and SOUNZ Centre for NZ Music.
