The NZSM Friday Lunchtime Concert on August 23, 2013 was a concert of works written for NZSM performance Staff by composers who were themselves former or current NZSM staff.
In this recording Associate Professor Martin Riseley (violin), NZSM Head of Strings, and Dr Jian Liu (piano), NZSM Lecturer in Classical Performance Piano, perform 'Intermezzo for Lenny', part of a Violin Sonata written by Martin Riseley himself. The work 'takes a saunter back to Riseley's first years in New York, when the musical world there was dominated by the inescapable musical genius and legacy of Bernstein.'
The video was filmed and edited by Chris Watson for SOUNZ, Centre for New Zealand Music, with audio by Roy Carr, Senior Technician at NZSM.
