Happy new year from Temple

Happy new year !

Please feel free to forward this to anyone who maybe interested

I know its been a long while since I've been in touch, but I hope you've been good. I'll be back in touch soon with the usual lengthy bulletin but in the meantime......

I am organising supports for the Auckland Zoo who have some fabulous concerts over the next couple of months.

We are after supports for Thursday 3 February for Yulia and Sunday 20 February for Katchafire. There is a possibility we may need a support for Goodshirt on 26 Feb.

We are also after solo or duo acoustic acts to perform at the entrance plaza as the crowds are arriving/queuing to get in.

Unfortunately these gigs don't offer much in the way of $$ ( they pay a nominal amount to cover expenses) but they are great for exposure and contacts.

Flick me an email and let me know if you are interested in playing but PLEASE don't send me any attachments.

The gig dates are as follows if you want to come and check it out Friday 21 January (6pm 9pm) Dave Dobbyn Thursday 3 February (6pm - 9pm) Yulia Sunday 13 February (6pm - 9pm) Nathan Haines Sunday 20 February (6pm 9pm) Katchafire Saturday 26 February (6pm 9pm) Goodshirt (part of AK05) Saturday 5 March (6pm 9pm) Nesian Mystik (part of AK05)

Tickets from Ticketek and door sales will be available.

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.

Scoop Review Of Books: A Pale Ghost Writer

Reviewed by Ruth Brassington, Richard Flanagan's new novel is about a novelist hastily ghost-writing the biography of a crook about to go to trial. The reader is kept on a cliff-edge, as the narrator tries to get blood out of his stone man. More>>
