Event Details


NZTrio reunites with Julian Bliss for an Aussie remount of Messiaen’s masterpiece Quartet for the End of Time, a work full of life, wit and virtuosity – at odds with the composer’s setting at the time of writing – a German prisoner of war camp.  An evocative match with John Psathas’ Island Songs and Ross Harris’ There May Be Light, bringing flavours of Australiasia to this evening of ensemble brilliance.
