Join the newly reformed NZTrio for the second in its 2019 Tectonic concert series - TECTONIC IMPACT. Performed in the beautiful North Atrium at Auckland Art Gallery followed by complimentary drinks and nibbles with the musicians: Amalia Hall (violin), Ashley Brown (cello), and Somi Kim (piano).
NZTrio’s 2019 TECTONIC series examines the fundamental forces that shape environments and communities, focussing in on Aotearoa New Zealand’s turbulent relationship with the United Kingdom, and the struggle between Cold War superpowers Russia and America.
In this episode, TECTONIC IMPACT, the first half compares and contrasts the very English sounds of Frank Bridge’s parlour music and UK’s shining star Rebecca Clarke, colliding them with NZTrio’s latest commission from Martin Lodge which responds to the evolving Māori-Pakeha relationship, and a time-twisting earlier commission from kiwi composing colossus, Ross Harris. The second half delivers a battle between Russia’s aching angst and America’s swing and swagger, with Schnittke in one corner and Schnyder in the other. This programme packs a punch.
Both tickets include complimentary refreshments with the musicians following the performance.
