Join us for a performance of Origins at City Gallery Wellington on November 19th.
Turnage: A Fast Stomp
Ballard (NZ): Prema Lahari (new commission)
Yun: Piano Trio
Zemlinsky: Piano Trio
Origins presents a journey through the musical and cultural influences of musicians Amalia Hall (violin), Ashley Brown (cello), and Somi Kim (piano).
Opening with Beethoven’s mighty Ghost Trio to celebrate his birth a quarter of a millennium ago, this programme embarks on a tour through the varied heritages of NZTrio. Works by Mark Anthony Turnage (UK) and Isang Yun (Korea) envelop a brand new work by Sarah Ballard (NZ) deeply inspired by Indian culture and music. To finish, our attention turns to the worrying global upsurges of separatism and hatred, so the last word comes from Austrian-American Alexander von Zemlinsky whose Jewish-Muslim upbringing inspires understanding and love.
Duration: Approx. 1.5 hours plus interval
Tickets include complimentary drinks and nibbles following the performance
