Brace yourselves! Our 2022 series packs a punch.

LEGACY features the mightiest masterpieces of the piano trio repertoire (Beethoven “Archduke”, Schubert Eb and Tchaikovsky) alongside the latest commissions from local leading-lights (Norris, Squire, Gao Ping), teaming up with some cheeky genre-busters (Kapustin, Bolcom and Schuller), with the discovery of lesser-known works from a familiar name (Schumann) to prime the senses.

Schumann Sechs Stücke in kanonischer Form, Op. 56 arr. for Piano Trio,  V & VI

Gao Ping New Commission

Schuller Piano Trio

Tchaikovsky Piano Trio in A minor, Op 50

The final saga begins with Schumann weaving his love of Bach’s counterpoint with his own natural fountainhead of fantasy, presented in an arrangement by his friend and colleague Kirchner. The chromatic spectrum is explored further in Schuller’s trio, embodying his jazz roots with colleagues Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis, and acknowledging his place in American composers’ royalty. Gao Ping’s NZ legacy continues long after his return to China in this brand new commission. The journey concludes with the largest, most symphonic piano trio of all – Tchaikovsky’s expansive and magnificent work written in memory of Nikolai Rubinstein – “À la mémoir d’un grand artiste”.
