A remarkable character, David has won awards for his work as a scientist, an environmentalist, and as a broadcaster. You may have heard his "From Naked Ape to Superspecies" when it was broadcast on RadioNZ last year.

He is adept at explaining the complexities of science in a compelling and comprehensible manner, and his work in sustainable ecology has been celebrated by such diverse groups as the United Na-tions and Canada's First Nations people - in fact, two First Nation tribes have formally adopted him. More than this, David has a vision for the planet that sees multi-national corporations and environmental groups working happily together, side by side. In his new book "Good News for a Change" he insists that in some cases this vision is already a reality. “Good News for a Change” is published by Allen & Unwin and available from all good bookstores. RRP$36.95

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
