How much has changed for New Zealand's female composers in the 125 years since women's suffrage?
In the 2018 Lilburn Lecture, acclaimed composer Eve de Castro-Robinson gives a talk at the National Library of New Zealand.
She reflects on her own journey as a female composer since the mid-1980s, asks why women are so poorly represented in New Zealand concert programming for 2019 and looks at changes to our musical and socio-political culture.
The Lilburn Lecture 2018 was recorded on 2 November 2018 at National Library of New Zealand by RNZ (Producer: Adrienne Baron / Engineer: Darryl Stack)
