Celebrating the joy of music with 3 special concerts in March, April and May. Audience members will be able to relax and enjoy performances featuring wonderful local, national and international musicians.

Beethoven Ghost
Turnage A Fast Stomp
Ballard (NZ) *new commission
Yun Piano Trio
Zemlinsky Piano Trio

Origins opens with Beethoven's mighty Ghost trio to celebrate his birth a quarter of a millennium ago. Then they celebrate the rebirth of NZTrio, introducing this new line-up with a tour through their cultural & musical backgrounds. Works by Mark Anthony Turnage (UK) and Isang Yun (Korea) envelop a brand new work by Sarah Ballard (NZ) deeply inspired by Indian culture and music. (How do these works represent NZTrio? Come along and find out!) To finish, the Trio's attention turns to the worrying global upsurges of separatism and hatred, so the last word comes from Austrian-American Alexander von Zemlinsky whose Jewish-Muslim upbringing inspires understanding and love.
