Trio Élan is an electrifying new ensemble comprising three of New Zealand's leading chamber musicians: violinist Donald Armstrong, saxophonist Simon Brew and pianist Sarah Watkins.

The programme showcases a novel combination of instruments. Colourful and jazzy music from France, New Zealand, Argentina and the United States will enthral audiences.

Since Adolf Sax invented the saxophone in the 1840s, composers have sought to combine its magical sound with that of many other instruments. Debussy and Ravel incorporated it in their impressionist music, influencing such contemporary composers as Algerian-born Marc Eychenne.

The saxophone lies at the heart of newer styles such as jazz, dance, and pop music, and the violin and piano have easily slipped into these new styles.

Trio Élan’s unusual line-up creates evocative sounds, catchy contemporary rhythms and soaring melodies. Prepare to be enchanted and entertained by this exciting programme.
