Works with Words

The opening of the Auckland Writers & Readers Festival on 11 May brought together the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, leading New Zealand composers and the words of a selection of New Zealand poets in an innovative concert. 

Among a suite of poems that composer John Elmsly set to music was Basil Dowling's 'Some thought they saw', which was movingly read by narrator Stuart Devenie. 

Basil Dowling: Selected Poems is distributed in New Zealand and Australia by Oratia Media. For more details visit
