NZTrio: Tectonic Impact
Join the newly reformed NZTrio for the second in its 2019 Tectonic concert series ~ Tectonic Impact. Performed in the beautiful North Atrium at Auckland Art Gallery followed by complimentary drinks and nibbles with the musicians: Amalia Hall (violin), Ashley Brown (cello), and Somi Kim (piano).
NZTrio’s 2019 series is all Empires and Superpowers - the fundamental forces that shape our land, our population, our society. Each concert charts a musical course from Captain Cook’s homeland in old England, to the sounds of Aotearoa prior to his arrival on these shores. We examine this European genre of piano trio music as it has developed within Aotearoa’s unique culturally intertwined society, and compare with the result of development within a British environment.
Then we direct our searchlight at old Cold War Superpowers and the struggle for supremacy. Towering masterpieces from USA and Russia/USSR loom menacingly in an icy standoff.
