Gareth Farr (1968)

Gareth Farr was born in Wellington, New Zealand. He began his studies in composition and

percussion performance at the University of Auckland. The experience of hearing a visiting

gamelan orchestra prompted his return to Wellington to attend Victoria University, where the

characteristic rhythms and textures of the Indonesian gamelan rapidly became hallmarks of

his own composition. Farr continued with postgraduate study in composition and percussion

at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY, where his teachers included Samuel Adler

and Christopher Rouse.

The inclusion of his works in four events at the 1996 New Zealand International Festival of

the Arts inaugurated his career as a dedicated freelance composer. Since then, Farr’s music

has been heard at, or especially commissioned for, high-profile events including the 50th

anniversary of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra ( From the Depths Sound the Great Sea

Gongs), the opening of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa ( Te Papa), and the

2000 Olympic Games in Sydney ( Hikoi, a concerto for percussionist Evelyn Glennie and the

NZSO). In 2003, a commission by the Auckland Festival resulted in Stone and Ice, composed

for the combined forces of the NZSO and the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra. In 2006

Farr was made an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit, for his services to music and

entertainment. In the same year, the Royal New Zealand Ballet toured the country with their

brand new work The Wedding, featuring a score by Gareth Farr. At ninety minutes, it was

among the ballet company’s most ambitious projects, and combined Farr’s talents with those

of prominent New Zealand novelist and librettist Witi Ihimaera.

Farr’s music was integral to Maui – One Man Against the Gods, a stage show four years in the

making. First premiered in 2003, it featured aerial theatre, Maori kapa haka, contemporary

dance and song, with Farr’s stirring music, and toured a number of centres in New Zealand.

In more recent years, Farr has developed a fruitful collaboration with director and librettist

Paul Jenden, producing four comedy musicals. In 2007 Farr was appointed as Composer-

PE094 – iii


in-Residence for the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra. The residency culminated in 2008

with the premiere of Ex Stasis, a symphonic song cycle for four soloists. In 2008, Farr also

celebrated the world premiere of his work Terra Incognita, for bass solo, choir and orchestra,

performed by Paul Whelan and the Orpheus Choir with the New Zealand Symphony

Orchestra. Farr’s artistic excellence was acknowledged when he received the Arts Foundation

of New Zealand’s Arts Laureate Award 2010, which aims to celebrate significant artistic

achievement as well as nurture future creative endeavours.

In March of 2014 Farr’s Concerto for Piano and Orchestra received its world premiere from

soloist Tony Lee and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Pietari Inkenen.

Its UK premiere followed one year later, with Lee backed by the BBC Philharmonic, with

conductor Tecwyn Evans. The BBC Philharmonic included Farr’s work alongside Douglas

Lilburn’s Symphony No.2 as a programme to mark the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC

troops’ battle at Gallipoli during World War I. The concerto received critical acclaim,

described by the Dominion Post’s John Button as containing “marvellously free piano

writing surrounded by orchestral sounds that conjure up memories of Prokofiev ballets,

Ravel’s L’Enfant et les Sortileges and even the Bartok First Piano Concerto…the ear was tickled

bar after bar. I have no doubt that this marvellously inventive piano concerto is bound to

develop an international life all its own.”

Farr’s music is particularly influenced by his extensive study of percussion, both Western

and non-Western. Rhythmic elements of his compositions can be linked to the complex and

exciting rhythms of Rarotongan log drum ensembles, Balinese gamelan and other percussion

music of the Pacific Rim.

Duggan Theme (1997)

Farr’s Duggan Theme was written for the television police-drama series Duggan, in which

Detective Inspector John Duggan (played by John Bach) solved grisly murder cases, set

against the scenic backdrop of New Zealand’s Marlborough Sounds. Farr composed music for

the two pilot episodes in 1997 and 1998, and the 11 one-hour episodes made subsequently.

A simple and effective duo for flute and marimba that is suitable for beginning chamber

music students, Duggan Theme follows a simple ternary form, beginning and ending in

the Aeolian (or natural minor) mode, and shifting through a variety of major keys in the B

section. Farr has used the sonically satisfying combination of flute and marimba in the past,

particularly in Kembang Suling (PE001), one of the composer’s best known works. Duggan

Theme also exists in an arrangement for solo marimba (as the second movement in Farr’s

Three Etudes [PE092]), and as a duet for vibraphone and marimba.

This arrangement of Duggan Theme received its premiere concert performance from Kirstin

Eade (flute) and Jeremy Fitzsimons (marimba) at St. John’s Presbyterian Church, Wellington,

New Zealand, in September of 2004.

Performance notes

When a five-octave marimba is available the cue-sized notes in mm.23–24 may be performed

either as an alternative, or in conjunction with the full size notes..
