NZ Trio: Sprial
August 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Arnold Bax: Trio in B flat.
Jenny McLeod: Seascapes.
Samuel Holloway: (New commission).
Beethoven: Piano Trio in E flat Major, op. 70, no. 2.
Spiral promises forward motion and adventurous leaps into the unknown, including a new commission from New Zealand composer Samuel Holloway who describes it as ‘a bold and obsessive exploration of self’. This programme is packed with introspective character (Bax), unseen currents of strength and depth (McLeod), and teetering precipices from which to safely test boundaries (Beethoven).
