NZTrio: Triptych 3 - Untamed Hope
Described as a “national treasure” and “New Zealand’s most indispensable ensemble” (William Dart, NZ Herald), NZTrio - He Taonga Wairere is renowned for its eclectic repertoire, outstanding talent and warm kiwi stage presence. Any preconceptions of classical music being stuffy or intimidating are smashed by edgy repertoire, venue ambiance, and post-concert manaakitanga. Bringing together three incredibly accomplished artists: Amalia Hall (violin), Ashley Brown (cello) and Somi Kim (piano), every NZTrio performance powerfully reaffirms the importance and cathartic nature of a live musical experience in today’s digital world. Expect to be affected. Fanny Mendelssohn - Trio in D minor Joan Tower - Trio Cavany Eva Bedggood - New Work (commissioned by Christopher’s Classics) Ethel Smyth - Trio in D minor We begin in 19th Century Germany with Fanny Mendelssohn's 'Trio in D minor’, a magnificent work by the renowned German composer. With melodies that soar and emotions that run deep, this piece offers a glimpse into the turbulent emotional landscape of its creator. Next, we venture into the contemporary realm with the power and subtlety of Joan Tower's 'Trio Cavany'. We proudly present a new commission by kiwi composer Eva Bedggood, offering a fresh perspective and intrinsically relevant voice. Our musical odyssey concludes with Ethel Smyth's impassioned piano trio, a powerful and evocative composition that showcases the depth of emotions and creative brilliance of the British composer at the beginning of her career.
