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.
8.30pm and 9.30pm
- Mackelvie Gallery, Mezzanine level
