Waipoua is an exploration of the lyrical and emotional capabilities of my favourite wind instrument, the clarinet. It is also a recollection of a memorable trip to the Waipoua State Forest, with its healing air, cool green light, delicate echoing sounds, and the overwhelming sight of Tane-Mahuta, the giant Kauri.
Dedicated to Ryan Reiss
