Notes & Reviews:

The New Zealand composer Dorothy Ker studied composition and electronic music at Auckland University with John Rimmer. After moving to England she continued studies with Nicola LeFanu and Harrison Birtwistle. As she writes, "This disc draws together a number of threads and themes of my compositional life since I left New Zealand. Creative preoccupation with form, space and memory appear in embryo form with "Solo" for Cello and emerge in various manifestations throughout the disc. Each piece draws stimulus from an extra-musical source, from the natural world to the inner world of the dream, to devise a poetry around particular notions of time and space."
