Beethoven: Ghost
Turnage: A Fast Stomp
Ballard (NZ): Prema Lahari (new commission)
Yun: Piano Trio
Zemlinsky: Piano Trio


Origins opens with Beethoven’s mighty Ghost trio to celebrate his birth a quarter of a millennium ago. Then they celebrate the rebirth of NZTrio, introducing this new line-up with a tour through their cultural and musical backgrounds. Works by Mark Anthony Turnage (UK) and Isang Yun (Korea) envelop a brand new work by Sarah Ballard (NZ) deeply inspired by Indian culture and music. (How do these works represent NZTrio? Come along and find out!) To finish, the Trio’s attention turns to the worrying global upsurges of separatism and hatred, so the last word comes from Austrian-American Alexander von Zemlinsky whose Jewish-Muslim upbringing inspires understanding and love.
