Once again stunning audiences both internationally with their tour of China and Taiwan in 2012 and more recently as part of the Auckland Arts Festival and a 10-centre Kaleidoscope Tour for Chamber Music New Zealand, NZTrio returns 'home' to Q Theatre for another intimate series of performances with the return of The Loft Series on July 14 and September 1.

A continued treasure within the classical community yet with a trademark style that challenges the traditional experience, the NZTrio’s sublime performances in the Loft @ Q Theatre in 2012 attracted both the traditional patrons and a new audience drawn to the accessibility of an intimate and thrillingly dynamic live performance.

“NZTrio could easily, un-facetiously be dubbed the rockstars of the New Zealand classical music scene” – Craccum 2013

Such has been this new interest from audiences that NZTrio are offering a subscription to both performances, discounting $10 from the ticket prices to both concerts.

2013’s Loft Series season begins on July 14th with their Corybas programme: featuring a brand new work from one of New Zealand’s most esteemed composers John Psathas. Psathas had the distinct honour of writing much of the ceremonial music for the opening and closing ceremony of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games (as documented on the CD/DVD project View From Olympus) and despite the complexity of his music has engaged a wide range of listeners.

Corybas also brings into its fold the work of Rebecca Clarke (USA) and Russian Dmitri Shostakovich (USSR), both providing a piano trio work to accompany Psathas’ new composition.

Between Strings concludes the NZTrio’s short season at the Loft and features a world premiere with Dylan Lardelli’s (NZ) Between Strings – a new work which features not only NZTrio but also the work of Chen Xi-Yao, New Zealand’s resident Guzheng master. An important interpreter of new New Zealand music for guitar, Lardelli has performed and recorded works by NZ composers Douglas Lilburn and Chris Watson – and has studied with composers Jack Body and John Psathas.

Between Strings will also include the work of Amy Beach (USA) and Anton Arensky (USSR), complementing the string-based work with a duo of piano trio works.
