Join NZTrio in the beautifully acoustic Miro Room at Matakana's Sculptureum for an evening of live music, great wine and stunning artworks. Tectonic Impact is the second in a series examining the fundamental forces that shape environments and communities, focussing on Aotearoa New Zealand’s turbulent relationship with the UK, and the struggle between Cold War superpowers Russia and America.
In this episode, the English sounds of Frank Bridge and Rebecca Clarke are contrasted with a time-twisting work by NZ composer Ross Harris followed by a battle between Russia’s aching angst and America’s swing and swagger, with Schnittke in one corner and Schnyder in the other. This programme packs a punch.
