Silver.Stone.Wood.Bone
Chamber Music New Zealand

SILVER STONE WOOD BONE weaves soundscapes and landscapes together into a haunting multi-sensory tapestry of music and moving imagery. Bridget Douglas, principal flute in the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra joins with Alistair Fraser, renowned taonga pūoro researcher and artist, to weave their two musical worlds across one magical night. Western flutes and traditional Māori instruments come together in both celebrated and new pieces by New Zealand composers, including John Psathas, Gillian Whitehead and Gareth Farr. The performance is set against the striking backdrop of a specially commissioned video work by visual artist Bridget Reweti (Ngāti Ranginui, Ngāi Te Rangi), illustrating our country’s unique landscapes which have shaped the sounds of these instruments over generations. Silver, stone, wood, bone - enduring materials that weather the storm. They are beaten, hollowed, carved, and polished to sing songs of the past and breathe life into the future. This is music of and for Aotearoa.

Tickets for this performance must be booked via Chamber Music New Zealand's website or via Ticketek.
