Composer - Margetić, Karlo

Lightbox (NZTrio Commission) Premiere July 2012 – 14’

Karlo Margetić holds degrees in composition and clarinet from the New Zealand School of Music. He is currently Emerging Composer in Residence with the Vector Wellington Orchestra, and was Composer in residence with the NZSO National Youth Orchestra in 2007 and Young Composer in Residence with the APO in 2007 and 2008.

Margetić has been the recipient of numerous prizes in composition, and has received commissions and performances from NZTrio, Duo Solaris, Saxcess, the APO, and the NZSO National Youth Orchestra. His music has been workshopped by the NZSO as part of the CreativeNZ/SOUNZ Readings in 2009 and 2011.

Margetić is also an active performer and is Co-Director of the SMP Ensemble, with which he has appeared as composer, clarinettist, conductor and narrator.

The composer writes: “When I think of a piano trio, I immediately think of a transparent interplay of lines. This has something to do with the fact that the instruments that make up the modern piano trio are not particularly homogeneous, unlike say, a string quartet. It’s as if somebody had strewn some line drawings of simple three dimensional objects on a photographer’s lightbox, all on top of one another, resulting in an unexpected and strangely beautiful assemblage.”

Lightbox was commissioned by NZTrio, with funding from Creative NZ.

Sharing some wonderful insights from Dr Robin Wilson on the importance of music education, including this quote: "It’s unfathomable to me that some people don’t grasp how important music is to the fabric of our society. It goes without saying that music expresses our human condition, conquers boundaries and unites people, inspires us, soothes us, reassures us, challenges us, and ultimately can lift us out of our earthly realm to appreciate something spiritual (regardless of one’s religious beliefs) in moving ways that words and actions cannot.": https://www.cutcommonmag.com/music-education-matters-says-robin-wilson-violin/?fbclid=IwAR0gJUq9d30GspXdtDfWRamQ7pXxnHHGDmg5Ru14ai2P-y3if9Y7dH8cJz0
