Trio Élan

Friday 9th April 2021

Trio Élan is an electrifying new ensemble made up of three of New Zealand's leading chamber musicians: violinist Donald Armstrong, saxophonist Simon Brew and pianist Sarah Watkins.

Showcasing the dynamic and seductive sounds of this unique blend of instruments, you’ll be swept along by colourful and jazzy music from France, New Zealand, Argentina and the US. The programme includes impressionist and jazz-tinged works along with several composers’ takes on the sensual rhythms of South America’s tango - from Astor Piazolla to Gareth Farr.

Trio Élan’s novel line-up of violin, saxophone and piano beautifully create evocative sounds, catchy - contemporary rhythms and soaring melodies. Prepare to be mesmerised, enchanted and entertained as these three top musicians unleash this exciting programme.
