Triptych 1 - Unquiet Dream

17 May

NZTrio presents "Unquiet Dream" - journey through the contrasting musical landscapes of four distinctive composers.

Unquiet Dream

Described as a “national treasure” and “New Zealand’s most indispensable ensemble” (William Dart, NZ Herald), NZTrio is renowned for its eclectic repertoire, outstanding talent and warm kiwi stage presence.  Bringing together three incredibly accomplished artists: Amalia Hall (violin), Ashley Brown (cello) and Sarah Watkins (guest pianist), every NZTrio performance powerfully reaffirms the importance and cathartic nature of a live musical experience in today’s digital world. Expect to be affected.

Benjamin Britten – Introduction and Allegro for piano trio

Lera Auerbach – Trio No. 2 Triptych – This Mirror Has Three Faces

Chris Cree Brown – New Work

Felix Mendelssohn – Trio in D minor Op. 49

Journey through a diverse musical landscape beginning with Benjamin Britten’s ‘Introduction and Allegro for Piano Trio’, a masterpiece that showcases his distinctive harmonic language and rhythmic vitality. Next, immerse yourself in the enigmatic world of Lera Auerbach’s ‘Trio No. 2 Triptych – This Mirror Has Three Faces’, a thought-provoking exploration of reflection, identity, and transformation, structured as a triptych with three distinct movements, each inviting introspection. Adding a touch of Aotearoa is a new work by a talented New Zealand composer Chris Cree Brown. Finally, we conclude with the rich and expressive ‘Trio in D minor Op. 49’ by Felix Mendelssohn, which beautifully balances classical structure with Romantic lyricism.
