Described as a "national treasure" and "New Zealand's most indispensable ensemble" (William Dart, NZ Herald), NZTrio - He Taonga Wairere is renowned for its eclectic repertoire, outstanding talent and warm kiwi stage presence. Any preconceptions of classical music being stuffy or intimidating are smashed by edgy repertoire, venue ambience, and post-concert manaakitanga. Bringing together three incredibly accomplished artists: Amalia Hall (violin), Ashley Brown (cello) and Somi Kim (piano), every NZTrio performance powerfully reaffirms the importance and cathartic nature of a live musical experience in today's digital world. Expect to be affected.

Felix Mendelssohn - Trio in C minor Op. 66
Reuben Jelleyman / J.S. Bach - Büchlein Reimaginings (selections)
Jennifer Higdon - Piano Trio
Arno Babadjanian - Trio in F-Sharp minor

We begin with Mendelssohn's emotionally charged and passionate 'Trio in C minor Op. 66', considered one of his finest chamber music works. Then NZ composer Reuben Jelleyman, known for his inventive melodies and harmonies, takes inspiration from Bach's chorales in 'Büchlein Reimaginings'. Our journey continues with Jennifer Higdon's 'Piano Trio', evoking colours being spread on a canvas through the melodies, harmonies and instruments themselves. Next, we venture into the rich and passionate realm of Armenia with Arno Babadjanian's 'Trio in F-Sharp minor', a compelling masterpiece that resonates with the soulful melodies and profound emotions of Armenian culture.

The concert at Nathan Homestead is 1 hour, with no interval - and includes selections from the Triptych 2 programme.
