Performing for the first time at the beautiful Nathan Homestead, NZTrio brings a light-hearted and joyful programme that smashes preconceptions of classical music being stuffy and intimidating. New Zealand’s foremost piano trio captivates audiences from all walks of life, injecting this versatile musical genre with their trademark sense of vitality and passion.
The trio will perform an eclectic 60 minute programme that explores syncopated rhythms, swirling melodies, and sparkling elegance from an international array of master composers, including New Zealand’s own bright young spark – Claire Cowan
The programme includes:
- Beethoven: Piano Trio in E-flat Major, op. 70, no. 2 - Finale: Allegro.
- Claire Cowan (NZ): ultraviolet.
- Franz Schubert (Austria): Piano Trio No 1 in B-flat, op. 99 - Scherzo: Allegro.
- Frank Bridge (Eng): Phantasie in c minor.
- Astor Piazzolla (Arg): Tango: Primavera Portena.
“ surely this country’s most indispensable ensemble” William Dart, NZ Herald; “ In recent years, NZTrio has established itself as one of the finest chamber ensembles in Australasia” John Button, The Dominion Post.
