At the heart of the programme are Brahms’ remarkable Piano Trios, composed during the early, mid, and late stages of his life. Each concert features one of the trios with the cycle completed at the conclusion of the national tour.
NZTrio – Amalia Hall (violin), Ashley Brown (cello), and Somi Kim (piano) are described as a “national treasure” and “New Zealand’s most indispensable ensemble” (William Dart, NZ Herald). NZTrio is renowned for its eclectic repertoire, outstanding talent, and warm kiwi stage presence. Bringing together three incredibly accomplished artists, every NZTrio performance powerfully reaffirms the importance and cathartic nature of a live musical experience in today’s digital world.
