Foremost New Zealand composer Eve de Castro-Robinson considers the future of our next generation in her newest concerto, Clarion, featuring Bede Williams on trumpet and pūtātara (conch shell) with the Auckland Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Peter Scholes.

The distinctive layers of the conch shell show a story of rising ocean temperatures and an ecosystem under threat. Like the shell, de Castro-Robinson builds up instrumental layers in Clarion, from foreboding through to chaotic cataclysm. You’ll hear calls and cries, keening, moaning, alerting, and sounding; a warning to us of our need to act in the current climate emergency.

Fittingly, in creating this work, de Castro-Robinson and Scotland-based, New Zealand-born Williams collaborated across the seas.

This very special one-night only performance is exclusive to Auckland Arts Festival and follows its world premiere at the University of St Andrews in Scotland.

The concert will include a selection of other works composed by Eve de Castro-Robinson.
