bright tide moving between

bright tide moving between is NZTrio’s first outing on Rattle Records, after Spark, its critically acclaimed 2005 debut on Trust. The album signals a maturing artistic focus as NZTrio keeps one foot proudly on the shores of Aotearoa, while taking its listeners on a journey out through the Pacific Rim.

Bright Tide’s thematic focus extends through a richly illustrated package, to provide a sensual aural and visual experience affirming that beauty is easily at home in contemporary classical music, right here, right now.

The album represents a distillation of the experience of some very finely honed live performances of the music, which NZTrio has performed since 2005.

 

bright tide moving between was a finalist for Best Classical Album at the 2008 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards.

From the press

NZTrio’s innovative programme is as addictive as the youthful energy of its playing from violinist Justine Cormack, cellist Ashley Brown and pianist Sarah Watkins.

It was exciting to see words and imagery from a vast range of New Zealand writers and poets given new context through each composer's distinct musical language and we look forward to sharing our thoughts at the workshops in a couple of weeks!

SOUNZ Centre for New Zealand Music
The Resound project brings you films of three works from the beautifully restored Great Hall at the Arts Centre of Christchurch. In November 2016 the members of NZTrio (Justine Cormack - violin, Ashley Brown - cello, Sarah Watkins - piano) teamed up with their old friend, the internationally renowned Wagnerian tenor Simon O'Neill, for a programme of works ranging from Bach to a new commission of Juliet Palmer, with arrangements of Strauss and Mahler (by New Zealanders Alex Taylor and Kenneth Young respectively) in between. We start with Juliet Palmer's 'Vermillion Songs', a setting of six poems by Emily Dickinson that travel "insights of science, through contemplation of pain, disorientation, a return to consciousness, acceptance of the fragility of existence, to a final song of death." The composer writes of her hope of offering listeners, "a fresh glimpse into the poetry of the human body". 'Vermillion Songs' was composed with funding from Creative New Zealand. Resound is funded by NZ On Air. The sound recording used in this film was realised by Alex van den Broek.
