bright tide moving between is NZTrio’s first outing on Rattle Records, after Spark, its critically acclaimed 2005 debut on Trust. The album signals a maturing artistic focus as NZTrio keeps one foot proudly on the shores of Aotearoa, while taking its listeners on a journey out through the Pacific Rim.
Bright Tide’s thematic focus extends through a richly illustrated package, to provide a sensual aural and visual experience affirming that beauty is easily at home in contemporary classical music, right here, right now.
The album represents a distillation of the experience of some very finely honed live performances of the music, which NZTrio has performed since 2005.
bright tide moving between was a finalist for Best Classical Album at the 2008 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards.
