Take a bow

FULL REVIEW:

On their third album for Rattle, NZTrio are again in their performance element tilling the fertile soil of some of New Zealand brightest emerging composers. The title track is a multi-layered and hued piece by Karlo Margetic, where a simple piano melody sets an almost searching tone, taken up by spiraling violin and cello and repeated in ever more probing variations. It’s the most intense and gripping of the seven compositions, which also feature Samuel Holloway’s tautly-strung and wrung Stapes and Gao Ping’s Su Xie Si Tu (Four Sketches), which he says was inspired by seeing a funeral procession in rural China. Take a bow Justine Cormack, Ashley Brown and Sarah Watkins.
