Hinemoa - for Orchestra was commissioned by the Queensland Orchestra and premiered 21 April 2007. It was performed by the Queensland Orchestra, conducted by Kenneth Young at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Brisbane, Australia. Hinemoa is inspired by a beautiful Maori fairytale. In the North Island of New Zealand there is an island called Mokoia in the middle of Lake Rotorua. At night the moon shines in the water, which is always rippling, never rough or stormy. Once there was a warrior named Tutanekai, who lived on the island. Across the water on the mainland there was a beautiful young woman named Hinemoa. One day Hinemoa and Tutanekai caught sight of each other and fell in love
