Gao Ping (China/NZ): Feng Zheng (Kite) (NZTrio commission and China premiere)
Renowned guzheng soloist Xia Jing 夏菁 accompanies NZTrio in Gao Ping’s China premiere of his new work Feng Zheng (Kite) dedicated to his dear friend the late, great NZ composer Jack Body. Feng Zheng is inspired by the notion of sending thoughts and wishes into the sky. Three other new commissions by New Zealand composers Dylan Lardelli, Jeroen Speak, and Dorothy Ker have also been created for this unique instrumental combination of piano, cello, violin and guzheng.
