NZTrio 2021 Season: Dramatic Skies

18 Apr - 12 Dec 2021

$25.00 - $50.00

Concert Chamber, Auckland Town Hall

NZTrio presents their 2021 series Dramatic Skies. As the name suggests, the series leads through intense emotional contrasts from sweetness and light to intense darkness. The bookends - two Rachmaninoff piano trios both called élégiaque - indicate the powerful emotional journey within the series. 

Each concert presents works from overseas and, like the clouds in the title, some are bright and billowy - familiar shapes passing by - while others are dark, brooding, and portentous. These globe-drifters gather around lofty peaks of Aotearoa’s musical landscape. There are two Kiwi works at the heart of each concert, your chance to hear a brand new commission, and to revisit an older favourite.
