NZTrio presents: Triptych 1 - Unquiet Dream
Performed with guest pianist, Sarah Watkins.
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.
