I have this:https://www.amazon.com/Landscapes-New-Zealand-Orchestral-Music/dp/B004S45284and am quite fond of it. Very good music and well performed. I like Ritchie's Symphony No. 3 too.
Yes, I remember the Lilburn symphonies on Naxos as being quite good.I also have an old Oryx LP with Lilburn works and a symphony (No.1) by David Farquhar (1928-2007), who wrote 2.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Farquhar
Lilburn is NZs classical icon.I love his 3rd Symphony, many of late piano pieces are very interesting. He was a composer trying to find a place between the major innovations going on with the European composers and tradition.
If you like Ligeti, Boulez and more texturally based stuff you'll LOVE this:https://vimeo.com/154125362
Cool! What was he like?I wat to add Gareth Farr's name to the list but can't find links to my favorite pieces.
Also Jack Body NZ actually has quite a "secret history" in classical music, but it tends to go quite unrecognised compared to other countries like France, America and Europe in the 20th, which of course are highly recorded, etc
Michael Norris (the head of classical composition here) is also very awesome, I've met him too and he shares passion of the Darmstadt school. You can hear echoes of Ligeti and Boulez in his work
