8:00 Dorothy Ker


Composer Dorothy Ker returns to New Zealand to take up the position of Visiting Scholar at the NZSM, resident at the Lilburn House in Wellington. Originally a graduate of Auckland University, she left in 1992 to study with Nicola Lefanu and Harrison Birtwistle, and is now firmly based in the UK with a thriving freelance career and position as Senior Lecturer in composition at Sheffield University. Her music appears at contemporary music festivals around the world, and ensembles that have commissioned her works include Lontano, the London Symphony Orchestra and 175 East here in New Zealand.

Charlotte Wilson talks to her about her music and influences, from her formative years at the piano, to study with Harrison Birtwistle and her abiding interests in time, space, and the nature of landscape and memory.

Music extracts from: diffracted terrains; solo for cello; Close-Up of a Daisy: echo; water mountain; […and…1]; The Structure of Memory; a gentle infinity; […and…11]
