event Details

NZTrio – Justine Cormack (violin), Ashley Brown (cello), and Sarah Watkins (piano) –  is New Zealand’s top professional ensemble in contemporary classical music and have been inspiring audiences around the world for over a decade. Known for their daringly unique concert programmes, NZTrio seek out less mainstream works of old, and pair them with newly commissioned works, offering a taste of musical styles that transcend time and place.

This programme is no exception:

  • Astor Piazzolla (Argentina; 1921-1992): 2 Tangos
    sultry sounds of Argentina, from the master of the form
  • David Hamilton (New Zealand; b. 1955): The Faraday Cage (3rd mvt) – 4.5'
    (commissioned and premiered by NZTrio in 2015)
    driving, relentless, yet joyful 
  • John Musto (USA; b. 1954): Piano Trio (2nd mvt) – 8.5’
    nervous urban energy, songful scampering

This event is part of our programming for White Night 2016.
