Composer - Ker, Dorothy

String Taxonomy, composed by Dorothy Ker (NZ) for piano trio and guzheng. Performed as part of NZTrio’s 2016 Loft Series: Glow and Fa (Wellington) with Chinese guzheng master, Xia Jing.

Of String Taxonomy, Dorothy writes: ‘A sonic alchemy amongst the four instruments emerges through shared gestures, so that bowing, plucking, striking and bending are no longer what distinguishes them. Research for the piece has taken place in collaboration with Dr Shu Jiang, a guzheng player based at Sheffield University.’

We’re toasting Denis Adam, hugely generous patron and active supporter of so many NZ musicians. I first met him through the Adam Cello Competition (which later became the Cello Festival) and enjoyed performing in the Adam Concert Room and at the Adam Chamber Music Festival. After a busy, full life, may he rest peacefully now.
Here’s to you Denis.
-Ashley, NZTrio
