A classical trio of violin, cello and theorbo/guitars, traversing the music of France, through the vibrant colours of impressionism, and into the swinging jazz Hot Club de France with a New Zealand composer’s own response — the music of France throughout the centuries has always been an emotional language of tenderness, colour and verve.
