Children and Adults was conceived as a song cycle, commissioned by Rosemary Stott for the Klarion Trio in 1992. The different ways that children and adults view the world has been a recurring source of fascination for the composer (who has reared three children of his own). This is encapsulated in these four settings, in which issues such as life, death, survival and creativity emerge as the main themes.
Commissioned by The Klarion Trio, Christchurch with assistance from NZ Composers' Foundation and QEII Arts Council
