NZTrio's 'Tectonic Impact' tour hits New Zealand this October

After an already busy 2019—which has seen NZTrio tour the country with the 'Tectonic Shift' programme and their 'Matariki programme Toru Whā', 'Ka Rewa a Matariki - Three Four', and 'The Rise of Matariki'—NZ's very own classical music trio now bring 'Tectonic Impact' to Auckland this October and December.

The 2019 series include:
- NZTrio: Tectonic Impact (Oct 13)
- NZTrio: Tectonic Uprising (Dec 11)
- NZTrio: Tectonic Uprising (Dec 15)

"Wonderful extremes of classical lyricism with raw power proved once again that NZTrio truly delivers contemporary artistic virtuosity." – Radio 13

NZTrio's 2019 Tectonic series features intense and intimate inspection of the fundamental forces that shape environments and communities: Aotearoa's fraught relationship with the United Kingdom, and the struggle between Cold War superpowers Russia and America.

In this episode, the first half compares and contrasts the very English sounds of Frank Bridge's parlour music and UK's shining star Rebecca Clarke—colliding them with NZTrio's latest commission from Martin Lodge which responds to the evolving Māori-Pakeha relationship, and a time-twisting earlier commission from kiwi composing colossus, Ross Harris. The second half delivers a battle between Russia's aching angst and America's swing and swagger—with Schnittke in one corner and Schnyder in the other. Interviews are available with the newly formed trio which features the incredible talents of Ashley Brown (cello), Amalia Hall (violin) and Somi Kim (piano).

Secure your tickets now and let NZTrio astound you with their mind-blowing performances this October and December!
