"We are utterly thrilled with the unique and dramatic concept that the composers have come up with. We have no doubt that audiences will be totally captivated through this musical journey." NZTrio

Celebrate our musical cultural heritage with a journey of discovery through collaboration, innovation and inspiration. Witness the special connection between composer and performer and the evolving process of composition through to performance.
As part of Chamber Music New Zealand’s Our Music Composer Connections tour during New Zealand Music Month this concert features NZTrio performing a programme specially curated by New Zealand composers with the ensemble in mind, showcasing music that deeply influences them in their work.

Composers Alex Taylor, Karlo Margetić and Claire Cowan on collaborating...
"This programme draws together a range of threads that connect us as New Zealand composers. We have built an overall framework rich with contemporary resonances, within which each New Zealand work has its own mini-programme and narrative arc, packing the concert full of energy and stimulation."
