Farr: Chamber Music
Featuring Michael Houstoun with Katherine Austin Alexa Still Carolyn Mills David Guerin Bruce McKinnon Andrew Uren performing the music of Gareth Farr

This album features a number of debut recordings of chamber music works by celebrated New Zealander, Gareth Farr. This recording showcases Farr's characteristically energetic writing with works Shadow of the Hawk, Cadenza, and the Balinese gamelan-influenced Sepuluh Jari. While in contrast, the evocative and haunting work for solo harp From Forgotten Forests reveals Farr's more lyrical and intimate writing. Perhaps Farr's most widely performed work Kembang Suling also features on this recording and is now considered to be standard repertoire among flute and marimba players worldwide.
