Join NZTrio at the Gallery for a live evening performance of TECTONIC IMPACT.

NZTrio’s 2019 TECTONIC series examines the fundamental forces that shape environments and communities, focusing in on Aotearoa New Zealand’s turbulent relationship with the United Kingdom, and the struggle between Cold War superpowers Russia and America.

In this episode, IMPACT, the first half compares and contrasts the very English sounds of Frank Bridge’s parlour music and UK’s shining star Rebecca Clarke, colliding them with NZTrio’s latest commission from Martin Lodge which responds to the evolving Māori-Pakeha relationship, and a time-twisting earlier commission from kiwi composing colossus, Ross Harris. The second half delivers a battle between Russia’s aching angst and America’s swing and swagger, with Schnittke in one corner and Schnyder in the other. This programme packs a punch.

The performance will run for approximately 90 minutes with an interval followed by complimentary drinks and nibbles.
