Join NZTrio for the third of their 2020 Home Series concerts: Constellations, and the final NZTrio concert of the year. Bring on 2021!
Beethoven: Piano Trio No. 1
Saariaho: Light and Matter
Korngold: Piano Trio
As the date of Beethoven’s 250th birthday approaches, we open this concert where it all began: his seminal Opus 1 No 1. Then our focus fans out to the Finnish-German-French influence in Kaija Saariaho’s spectral masterpiece Light and Sound. Staying in the brightest light, we experience the delightful return of the prizewinning Lightbox by New Zealander Karlo Margetić.
The light then projects onto the silver screen in the Piano Trio by Erich Korngold, a work that bears all the hallmarks of his Austro-Hungarian upbringing, WW2-era immigration into America and film-music career.
