Book CoverWallace Liggett新西兰手风琴协会 New Zealand Accordion Association (NZAA) 对其终身成员华莱士·利格特( Wallace Liggett )去世的消息深表悲痛。

As a young man he met with the "father of the accordion" in New Zealand, teacher Allan Jones. His teaching introduced Wallace "to a level of technique and musical interpretation, although more common in top accordionists of today, was unknown in NZ at that time." The realisation of this motivated Wallace to practice hours each, so that within about five years, he had established himself as the leading New Zealand concert accordionist of the day.

他是第一位在国家广播电台使用自由低音手风琴演奏和录制唱片的新西兰人(大约1958年),并为自由低音手风琴录制了许多伟大的大师作品。

For some years he enjoyed a dominance in the concert accordion field in NZ, such that when an early winner of the NZ Solo Accordion Championship was asked in a radio interview about his further accordion ambitions, he replied, "To become as good as Wallace Liggett".

Wallace Liggett recorded for both the New Zealand Broadcasting Corporation and the Australian Broadcasting Commission.

1990年,NZAA 新西兰手风琴协会( NZAA New Zealand Accordion Association )曾委托 Wallace Liggett 撰写了《新西兰手风琴的历史》( The History of the Accordion in New Zealand )一书,以记录有关新西兰手风琴的早期历史,音乐家个人及他们的奋斗的故事。 因为音乐家和公众对手风琴的广泛接受和欣赏,这段故事并没有随着时间的流逝而消失。

经过三年的研究,该书已从预计的最多100页增加到超过270页的文字,信息列表和照片,成为手风琴的主要参考书之一。 书中包括了大约545个新西兰协会,管弦乐队和手风琴家。

Wallace was an Associate of the Institute of Registered Music Teachers and a Registered Secondary School Teacher. He was an admired accordion teacher, school teacher, regular judge at the NZ Accordion Championships and was appointed an examiner for the Accordion Examination Board of New Zealand in 1992.

In 2011, Wallace Liggett was made a Life Member of the NZAA for all his services to the accordion in New Zealand at the 40th Anniversary of the NZAA. An update to the book "The History of the Accordion in New Zealand" was completed for this event, the update being in digital pdf format and provided free with the original book.

In September 2011, Wallace Liggett moved to Australia to be with family members and into semi-retirement, then full retirement. He passed away 18 October 2020 in Coramba NSW, Australia.
