NZTrio in Greytown

October 3, 2018 October 2018, Uncategorized No Comments

The NZTrio will conclude its 2018 touring year with the programme Twine, which they will perform in Greytown on Thursday 8 November, and also in Auckland, New Plymouth and Whitianga.

Each concert this year has presented a fresh dynamic, with an impressive line-up of talented Kiwi guest musicians joining founding member, cellist Ashley Brown. For the Twine concerts, violinist Amalia Hall and pianist Somi Kim will combine with Ashley. He says “It is exciting working with different guest musicians, creating new and exhilarating NZTrio combinations every time”.

NZTrio describes the concert programme as follows: “Audiences will be welcomed in with the brief but intoxicating Mishima by Philip Glass. The Trio will then dive headlong into Schumann’s Piano Trio No 2 in F Major, a work described by the composer as a “friendly work, making an immediate impression on the listeners.”

Rush, a recent work by Aussie composer Matthew Hindson, rolls rhythmically into a smile-laden world of tumbles and twirls, gathering momentum and excitement!

After the interval, the Trio and audience will venture together into uncharted territory with Kiwi Celeste Oram’s brand new commissioned work. As we go to print, it’s not yet complete, but a genuine and fascinating work is anticipated from this supremely talented and innovative artist.

To end the concert we can all relax into the warm familiar embrace of Brahms Piano Trio No 1 in B Major, all power and depth, darkness and brooding.”

All three instrumentalists are leaders in their field.  Ashley Brown is a passionate advocate for NZ music, having shared the stage with artists and composers as diverse as Dame Gillian Whitehead, Moana Maniapoto, Michael Houston and Neil Finn.  Amalia Hall has a very busy schedule, combining her position as Concertmaster and soloist with Orchestra Wellington, with recent tours to Italy, England and Mexico.  Somi Kim has established herself as one of today’s most highly regarded young pianists. She will be returning to NZ to join the other two for this concert, after numerous engagements throughout Britain and the Netherlands.

NZTrio’s Twine Concert: 7.30pm on Thursday 8 November, at 57 Wood Street, Greytown. Admission $25 adults, $10 students. Ring Ed & Juliet Cooke on 06 304 9497 to reserve a seat, or email them on efjac@xtra.co.nz.
