Puoro Music AOTEAROA NEW ZEALAND
Beethoven: Piano Trio in E-flat major, Op. 1, No. 1
Hatzis: Old Photographs
NZTrio links the past and present with music spanning the centuries. Beethoven’s joyful E-flat major piano trio opens the concert followed by a special commission from New Zealand-Japanese composer Salina Fisher, who draws inspiration from the arts of “Kintsugi”, where broken ceramic pieces are reassembled using gold, enhancing their inherent strength and beauty. The journey ends with “Old Photographs” by Greek-Canadian composer Christos Hatzis - nostalgic and evocative, it draws us back to another place and time.
NZTrio is renowned for its eclectic repertoire, outstanding talent and warm kiwi stage presence. Bringing together three incredibly accomplished artists: Amalia Hall (violin), Ashley Brown (cello) and Somi Kim (piano), every NZTrio performance powerfully reaffirms the importance and cathartic nature of a live musical experience in today’s digital world.
Renowned soprano Anna Leese returns to curate this much-loved music series. This year with New Zealand artists and New Zealand compositions and arrangements in every programme, St Paul’s at One celebrates our own unique flavour of classical music in Aotearoa. Featuring a wide range of instrumentalists and vocalists, we are lucky to host many of Aotearoa’s most outstanding and exciting musicians in their fields. We represent opera, classical guitar, a chamber orchestra, a vocal ensemble, and Tararua, an exciting ensemble of Western and traditional Māori instrumentalists, who craft waiata, karakia, and pūrākau to tell uniquely Southern stories.
