NZTRIO WEAVES ITS WAY ACROSS NZ FOR A STUNNING 2018 PROGRAMME!

Elephant Publicity media release

 

 

NZTrio is delighted to announce its 2018 programme which offers Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington audiences a fine selection of concerts that embrace new commissions, female composers and thrilling explorations of the classical canon in June, September and November.

For the 2018 programme deep connections are woven through each concert and across the series. Familial, romantic, and collegial relationships are revealed among the Mendelssohns, the Schumanns, and Brahms. Stylistic nuances across the decades appear among Kiwi composers – Buchanan, Kelly, and Oram, and Aussies Greenbaum, Kats-Chernin, and Hindson – allowing for comparisons of styles from either side of the Tasman.  The concerts open with a sense of strength and fragility referenced by Clement and Glass, and there’s a celebration of New Zealand’s suffragettes in the central concert of all female composers.

Each concert presents a fresh dynamic, with an impressive line-up of talented Kiwi guest musos – Natalie Lin, Benjamin Baker, and Amalia Hall (violin) and Stephen De Pledge and Somi Kim (piano) – arriving from all corners of the globe to join Ashley Brown (cello) in exhilarating NZTrio combinations every time.

 

The programme features three concerts:

 

WEAVE
GLASS • MENDELSSOHN • GREENBAUM • BUCHANAN • SCHUMANN
Ashley Brown (cello) with guest musicians Natalie Lin (violin) and Somi Kim (piano)
The first in the 2018 series, Weave introduces an aural tapestry rich in colour and texture. The structuralist sensibility of Philip Glass (USA) and ordered tonality of Felix Mendelssohn (GER) provide a framework for the more fluid and silky soundworlds of Stuart Greenbaum (AUS) and Dorothy Buchanan (NZ), before the flat-out emotional turbulence of Robert Schumann (GER) closes the loop.

 

BRAID
CLEMENT • MENDELSSOHN • KATS-CHERNIN • KELLY • SCHUMANN
Ashley Brown (cello) with guest musicians Benjamin Baker (violin) and Stephen De Pledge (piano)
In recognition of the 125th anniversary celebration for women’s suffrage in New Zealand, Braid unleashes an all-female cast of composers. These remarkable women are represented in this powerful tribute by a perfect tangle of traits – enigma in the Clement (NZ), protective embrace in the Kelly (NZ), enduring strength in the Kats-Chernin (AUS), compassion in the Schumann (GER) and emotional wisdom in the Mendelssohn (GER).

 

TWINE
GLASS • SCHUMANN • HINDSON • ORAM • BRAHMS
Ashley Brown (cello) with guest musicians Amalia Hall (violin) and Somi Kim (piano)
In the finale of the series, Twine knits together the linear sway from Philip Glass (USA) and the refreshing new pluck and spin from Matthew Hindson (AUS), with a new commission from Celeste Oram (NZ). Robert Schumann (GER) and Johannes Brahms(GER) deliver lashings of romantic sentimentality, outpourings from their lives entwined.
