Stratus begins the series enveloped in a foggy blanket of sound, with the dark, sumptuous depths of Rachmaninoff's Trio élégiaque and Suk's yearning Elegie sandwiched around the cosy, rustic nature of Haydn's sunny G Major trio. Claire Cowan's ultra violet shimmers through the spectrum with its millions of colours; in Reuben De Latour's new commission, an auscultation of water, we sink into the undulations of an aquatic heart beat; and we ascend again, evaporating into the melancholy, linear architecture of the Chausson Trio, reminiscent of Aotearoa's eponymous threads of clouds hugging the horizon.

Stratus is part of NZTrio's 2021 season. Season passes are available to purchase here
