Larry Pruden (1925-1982) is one of a handful of New Zealand composers who studied under Benjamin Frankel at London’s Guildhall School of Music. Pruden’s significant contribution to the establishment of a genuine New Zealand vernacular lives on in the works for which he is best known. The music in this volume is intriguing and demonstrates Pruden’s romantic ideal and his broadly impressionistic technique.
