Composer - Bailey, Judy

So many rivers (NZTrio Commission, premiered April 2010) – 10′

This work endeavours to portray concepts that are both literal and allegorical in nature. The composition begins as it ends, with a calm, almost meditative state, but in between its curves and meanderings we detect the gradual emergence of almost hidden movement – the subtle shifts of mood, the gathering momentum with hints of playfulness, the growing turbulence, the troubled and sometimes tormented complexity that may eventually find its way through to a flowing serenity, and not to forget the ‘passing nod’ that reflects the historical and cultural influence of the various regions that may be encountered on this journey.

We begin our Resound coverage of New Zealand works (all by New Zealand woman composers!) performed at NZTrio’s three The Loft programmes (‘weave’, ‘braid’ and ‘twine’) in 2018 with Dorothy Buchanan’s ‘Trio Sound’. ‘Trio Sound’ is the composer's interpretation in musical abstraction of Ian Wedde's poem 'Shaduf' (1980), penned following extensive travels by the poet in the Middle East. It is performed by Natalie Lin (violin - guest), Ashley Brown (cello) and Somi Kim (piano - guest) at The Loft at Q Theatre on 26 June 2018. Audio recorded by RNZ Concertt; film funded by NZ On Air.
