TIMELIGHT: Julian Bliss and NZTrio

British prodigy and clarinettist extraordinaire Julian Bliss, with New Zealand’s leading piano trio and ‘masters of the musical mix’ NZTrio present TIMELIGHT, a programme of chamber music both vibrant and profound.

At the heart of the collaboration is Messiaen’s masterpiece Quartet for the End of Time, a work full of life, wit and virtuosity – at odds with the composer’s setting at the time of writing – a German prisoner of war camp. John Psathas’ Island Songs and Ross Harris’ There May Be Light are a colourful and evocative match bringing flavours of Australiasia to this evening of ensemble brilliance.

NZTrio is New Zealand’s foremost piano trio and critically acclaimed as one of Australasia’s finest chamber ensembles.

Date & Time:
Saturday 25 August at 7:30pm
