Constellations | NZTrio at Mairangi Arts Centre


Beethoven | Piano Trio No. 1 (1st mvt)
Saariaho | Light and Matter
Margetić | Lightbox
Korngold | Piano Trio (1st mvt)

As the date of Beethoven’s 250th birthday approaches, we open this concert where it all began: his seminal Opus 1 No 1. Then our focus fans out to the Finnish-German-French influence in Kaija Saariaho’s spectral masterpiece Light and Matter. Staying in the brightest light, we experience the delightful return of the prizewinning Lightbox by New Zealander Karlo Margetić. The light then projects onto the silver screen in the Piano Trio by Erich Korngold, a work that bears all the hallmarks of his Austro-Hungarian upbringing, WW2-era immigration into America and film-music career.
