NZTrio's Kiwi Sampler 2 rounds out the group's celebration of NZ Music Month, to be held in the Auckland Museum's stunning Maori Court. Joined by the APO's Miranda Adams and Robert Ashworth, this concert once again shines the spotlight on some of New Zealand's leading composers.
Michael Norris’ dirty pixels, the trio’s first ever commission, kicks off the programme with intense rhythmic energy; Maria Grenfell’s Feather of Blue, inspired by the imagery of a Kevin Ireland Poem, evokes rain pouring down a window pane giving way to sunshine; Samuel Holloway’s Stapes will present a totally unique sound world; Victoria Kelly's string quartet Songs without Words is a set of exquisitely beautiful and moving songs in response to the birth of her daughter Sasha; Ross Harris’ Senryu is a quirky romp, structured as if a Japanese poetic form of haiku; Gao Ping’s Four Sketches depict snapshots of memories from China; A movement of John Psathas' Piano Quintet will conclude this thrilling feast of NZ music.
