Postcards from Harwood

Solo voice

Settings of 5 haiku for voice and piano

Texts by the Otago Peninsula Writing Group

Postcards from Harwood was written to celebrate my friend and colleague, John Elmsly’s 50th birthday and is dedicated to him.

The first performance was given by Glenese Blake (soprano) and Richard Liu (piano) on 28 July 28 2002 in a Karlheinz concert in the Music Theatre at the University of Auckland.
