'Homeland 2' begins in Romania with Enescu’s luscious A minor trio, one of the very few works he composed during WWII and a strong witness to his fascination with the countryside and folk music of his homeland. Then, Chen Yi transports us half a world away to her upbringing in China with musical stories filled with bustling energies and happy memories, before the warmness of a serenade composed by a young Enescu melts our hearts.
Victoria Kelly’s gently rhythmic and mystical sound world brings us back home to Aotearoa before our final stop in Prague, where a 42-year old Dvořák takes us into the depths of Czech folk music traditions and into the dark and brooding romanticism of his F minor piano trio.
