This is the new NZTrio with Amalia Hall (violin) – Concertmaster of Orchestra Wellington – and Somi Kim (piano) joining Ashley Brown (cello). This concert, which begins with the dark lyric beauty of Beethoven’s explosive C minor trio, will finish with the piano trio of Ravel – among the most treasured works written for violin, cello and piano. Between these two masterworks, the heart of the programme consists of moving pieces by composers who have made Canada home. Born in Greece, Kriztos Hatzis has been a composition professor in Toronto since 1995 and established an impressive reputation. The sinuous melodies that another Canadian, Dinuk Wijeratene, winds through ‘Love Triangle’ evoke the sounds of Middle Eastern and North Indian music. Before the end of this work each of the three members of the trio have the opportunity to shine in dazzling solos.
