This year’s Lilburn Lecture sees acclaimed composer Eve de Castro-Robinson asking how much progress women composers in New Zealand have made since the granting of equal voting rights 125 years ago.
Reflecting on changes in New Zealand’s musical and socio-political culture, de Castro-Robinson considers her own journey as a female composer from the mid-1980s onward.
