Sheet Music: Score
Te Matua Ngahere : for chamber orchestra / James Wade.
by James Wade (2006)
Te Matua Ngahere ("The Father of the Forest") is an ancient kauri tree, believed to be more than 2000 years old, located in the Waipoua Kauri Forest on the North Island of New Zealand. Being in the presence of this tree several years ago has remained as one of the most profound experiences of my life. This inspiration, coupled with a series of recent walks through different botanical gardens around Victoria, provided much of the motivation for this piece. This stimulus has been in some instances direct, for example, aurally recreating the visual textures of the environments that I encountered. Alternatively, inspiration came simply through reflecting upon these experiences.
