We’re excited to be performing the final saga of our LEGACY series at venues across Aotearoa. NZTrio is renowned for performances that combine musical excellence with low key Kiwi warmth. Whether it’s your first concert, or you’re a classical music devotee, come along for a live musical experience to remember.

The concert 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”
