It’s Resound season! The annual collaboration between RNZ Concert, NZ On Air and Sounz. Over the next eight weeks we’ll be bringing you the best NZ music from the archives, with introductions from Kenneth Young. Tonight: works spanning over four decades by Larry Pruden, Claire Cowan and Michael Norris, with Ken giving an introduction to piano works by Ross Harris, newly recorded by Sarah Watkins last year.

Plus in the second hour, another in the Relevant Tones ‘Soundward’ series called “Time Travel’, looking at pop musicans who’ve made the transition to classical composers.

Soundward: Time Travel

Over the years pop artists have been making the transition from guitar slaying Hair Rock to classical composers. Seth and Q2 Music’s Phil Kline feature musicians like Kip Winger, Billy Joel, Jonny Greenwood and Roger Waters. Why are they making the transition and does it work? (WFMT)
