About the work
Pikeri is the middle section of a larger work, Pao for soprano, clarinet and piano, but can stand alone.
Scores and recording
Pikeri was published in 1993 in Kowhai, an album of songs by New Zealand women composers in celebration of 100 years of women’s suffrage. This is now out of print.
Buy or borrow the scores of Pao and Pikeri, or borrow Kowhai, from SOUNZ. They also have audio of a performance of Pikeri.
RNZ Concert recorded Pikeri in 1995.
