2017 Composing Competition Winners announced

NZTrio is excited to announce the winners for the NZTrio Composing Competition 2017 – Turn a Phrase​.

We have been so impressed with the overall response to this year’s competition and the quality and variety of all the compositions submitted has been incredibly strong.

Together with composer Juliet Palmer, we selected the winners based on the strength and originality of the scores, as well as considering how authentically and meaningfully each composer responded to the brief:

‘ to find a New Zealand author or poet whose carefully crafted words inspire a musical work of no more than 10 minutes in length.’

 

In alphabetical order of surname, the nine winning works are:

 

Riley Cahill: Territory of the Heart

Josiah Carr: Time and Glue

Rosa Elliott: Voices of the Air

Richard Francis: Reflections

Marcus Jackson: when where

Lily James: Charcoal on White Snow

Callum Mallett: Departure, at the Going Tide

Abby Pinkerton: Whispers and Echoes

Xu Tang: One Two Three

 

​We congratulate you all and look forward to performing these nine works in the Winners’ Concerts this October.

 

Concert dates:

October 15, 5pm • Adam Concert Room, NZSM, Wellington

October 20, 7.30pm • University of Auckland Music Theatre

General admission/free entry

 

*Programme notes can be found in the event directory for each concert.

Sharing some wonderful insights from Dr Robin Wilson on the importance of music education, including this quote: "It’s unfathomable to me that some people don’t grasp how important music is to the fabric of our society. It goes without saying that music expresses our human condition, conquers boundaries and unites people, inspires us, soothes us, reassures us, challenges us, and ultimately can lift us out of our earthly realm to appreciate something spiritual (regardless of one’s religious beliefs) in moving ways that words and actions cannot.": https://www.cutcommonmag.com/music-education-matters-says-robin-wilson-violin/?fbclid=IwAR0gJUq9d30GspXdtDfWRamQ7pXxnHHGDmg5Ru14ai2P-y3if9Y7dH8cJz0
