Cumulus maps a dramatic voyage, from deep melancholy touched with hints of hope in the Grieg, through a quirky reflection of Ravel’s life and music from Schifrin’s unique point of view, and deep into Smetana’s mournful response to the death of his daughter.

These billowing global masterpieces come to surround and embrace the eminent locals at the heart of the programme – two edgy works by Kiwi composers at the peak of creativity: a rediscovery of Alex Taylor’s remarkable set of rugged miniatures burlesques mécaniques, and the premiere of a mist-covered new work from Jenny McLeod.


Grieg: Andante Con Moto in C minor

Schifrin: Hommage a Ravel

McLeod: Clouds (new commission)

Taylor: burlesques mécaniques ten miniatures for piano trio

Smetana: Piano Trio in G minor, Op. 15
