The most famous bass-baritone in new music - in the world. Nicholas Isherwood has been right here in New Zealand at the invitation of the NZSM: and in this two-part series, Charlotte Wilson talks to him about new music, his voice, his music, and composers he has known.

(1) Why new music chose him (not the other way around): his spiritual ancestors in new music, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Elliott Carter; our 'unsung heroes in New Zealand'; and avant-garde singing techniques, demo'd for you, right here, right now.
