NZTrio: Constellations

Join us for the third and final of our 2020 Home Series concerts: Constellations, in the beautiful estate residence of Tiromoana.

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.

Beethoven: Piano Trio No. 1
Saariaho: Light and Matter
Margetić: Lightbox
Korngold: Piano Trio

Duration: Approx. 1.5 hours plus interval
