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.
