Composer - Whitehead, Gillian

The river flows on… (written for NZTrio and Cambodian ensemble Tray So – premiered March 2011) – 20′

Piano Trio (Sept 2004 – NZTrio commission) – 20′

About the Piano Trio:

“The ideas behind the piece have to do with changing perspectives of patterns in water – in the bubbling of streams, the tumble of a waterfall, in the spiralling eddies where stream meets lake at sunrise. In the opening movement, a group of short themes and ideas initially form a mosaic-like section, which recurs in developed and varied forms around more reflective passages. The second movement reverses the first, in the sense that slow, sustained sections are interrupted by more energetic material, and the final movement draws all the previous ideas together.”

Gillian Whitehead’s Piano Trio was commissioned by NZTrio, with funding from Creative New Zealand.
