Solo piano recital by William Green. From Bach to Gershwin and Barber, Wagner to Lilburn and Body, this solo piano recital focuses on the small and the lyrical - often clothed in the unusual! A special emphasis on New Zealand music includes the premiere of William Green’s “Rags
Without Riches”, a quirky salute to the world of ragtime.
