MASSIVE COMPANY AND NZTRIO: MY BED MY UNIVERSE

2013 marked the start of a project that forged new ground for NZTrio and theatre ensemble Massive Company.

We workshopped and experimented closely with Chris and the team at Massive Company throughout 2013, developing and evolving what became an astonishing production for performances in 2014.

VICISSITUDES – MIKE NOCK TRIO AND NZTRIO

An alternation between opposite and contrasting things

Jazz and classical music came together on stage in 2013 when two of New Zealand’s best-loved trios combined their considerable talents in a special concert featuring Mike Nock’s new work Vicissitudes. A musical celebration of the worlds of jazz and classical music, Vicissitudes reflects on our shared ability to overcome dire circumstances. Vicissitudes premiered to a sold-out audience at the Christchurch Arts Festival in 2013.

The Lepistö&Lehti sound is characterised by the players’ remarkable confidence and vision, which gives the music distinctively personal edge.
