TECTONIC UPRISING

NZTrio’s 2019 Tectonic series is all Empires and Superpowers - the fundamental forces that shape our land, our population, our society. Each concert charts a musical course from Captain Cook’s homeland in old England, to the sounds of Aotearoa prior to his arrival on these shores. We examine this European genre, piano trio music, as it has developed within Aotearoa’s unique culturally intertwined society, and compare with the result of development within a British environment.

In UPRISING, we hear parlour music from Bridge, and a rediscovered trio by Elgar – mannered distractions from the building of empires and the noise of war and industrialisation in the England of their time. Later the music of Charlotte Bray illuminates contemporary England while also looking back to the enduring words of Shakespeare – and New Zealand composer, Samuel Holloway, turns our gaze inward to the human landscape and the mechanisms of hearing. In the second half, the prescience and experimentation of US composer, Charles Ives meets the subversive rebellion of Shostakovich – two profoundly contrasting sides of an iron curtain that takes on new meaning and significance today.

Programme:

Frank Bridge (UK): Hornpipe
Edward Elgar (UK): Lento assai - Allegro moderato
Samuel Holloway (NZ): Stapes
Frank Bridge (UK): Valse Russe
Charlotte Bray (UK): That Crazed Smile
Charles Ives (US): Trio
Dmitri Shostakovich (USSR): Piano Trio No.2 in e minor

Approx. 90 mins plus interval
