Schubert: Sonatensatz, D. 28
Clement: shifting states
Panufnik: Piano Trio Op. 1
Whitehead: TBA (new commission)
Rachmaninoff: Trio élégiaque No. 2 in D minor, Op. 9
Cirrus sweeps us into the heights of Schubert’s musical charm, shifting us into Rachel Clement’s glassmaking inspired sound world. Through passionate mood changes and luscious melodies reminiscent of the late French Romantics, Panufnik’s piano trio takes us into the depths of the nebulous glow of the clouds of Aotearoa in our new commission by Gillian Whitehead. Rachmaninoff’s masterpiece reflects on the huge journey of the whole series and brings the year to a dramatic close with a sense of pathos and heightened emotion.
Cirrus is part of NZTrio's 2021 season. Season passes are available to purchase here.
