Radio New Zealand Concert celebrates NZ Music Month

Radio New Zealand Concert is celebrating the start of New Zealand Music Month by releasing a New Zealand work as a free podcast for download.

Anthony Ritchie’s Symphony No 2 was recorded by RNZ when the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra performed it under Marc Taddei in 2006. Radio New Zealand Concert is now making this work available as part of its Podcast Classics series.

Podcast Classics is a monthly web-only programme from RNZ Concert, which makes New Zealand performances of classic works available as free downloads. Partner organisations are the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the New Zealand String Quartet, Chamber Music New Zealand – and of course, the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra.
