NZTrio | HOMELAND 1: SONGS MY MOTHER TAUGHT ME (Wellington)

Concert

Nostalgia and melancholy opens 'Homeland 1' with Dvořák’s second piano trio, imbued with his personality and Slavic folk elements. The trip around the globe continues with a set of miniatures by American composer Daniel Temkin, with a chance to pay homage to five 20th-century composers who celebrated folk-music in their masterpieces: Britten, Bartok, Copland, Dutilleux and Ligeti.

The spirit of Aotearoa is reflected in Eve de Castro-Robinson’s newest commission before we enter into the soundscape of the emotional struggles of humankind in Weinberg piano trio – a product of WWII. Even through the stark turbulence, there is a sense of optimism and hope as we wind down with a poignant tune from Dvořák’s Gypsy Songs, telling a story of a mother’s tears, memories and influence – encapsulating the essence of folk-music being passed down through generations.
