800 Million Heartbeats Inside the City Gallery This August

800 Million Heartbeats Inside the City Gallery This August

NZTRIO: ART³ - Heartbeats

NZTrio invites you back in 2013 to enjoy more sublime music at City Gallery Wellington as part of its popular Art³. Staying true to NZTrio style, Heartbeats explores extraordinary New Zealand works at the heart of the programme.

NZTrio could easily, un-facetiously be dubbed the rockstars of the New Zealand classical music scene” – Craccum 2013

2013 is an incredibly busy time for the trio; having opened the year with a myriad of festival concerts including Auckland Arts Festival and recently completing a nationwide tour for Chamber Music New Zealand, the group will once again reprise their metropolitan chic Loft Series at Auckland’s Loft @ Q before embarking on another tour of regional centres with Arts on Tour NZ and performances at both the Taranaki and Tauranga Arts Festival.

Returning to City Gallery Wellington for the 2013 Art³ concert audiences will be surrounded by the powerful artworks of Shane Cotton, and drawing on cultures from both the Old and New Worlds, will bask in the sumptuous sounds of unashamedly colourful and emotional music from Russia and Australia. 

Heartbearts derives its name from a work crafted by Australian composer Stuart Greenbaum800 Million Heartbeats. A metaphor for a life, measured in heartbeats, and the journeys that fill its course, 800 Million Heartbeats was first created in 2007 and subsequently recorded at the Melbourne Recital Centre by NZTrio as part of their collaboration with Greenbaum to record all his works for piano trio.

The CD 800 Million Heartbeats will be released this year under the ABC Classics label.  Regional audiences will also have the chance to hear Greenbaum’s work as part of the Arts on Tour NZ performances throughout September.

Heartbeats also features a recent work by hallowed composer (and Wellington local) John Psathas, with Corybas receiving its Wellington premiere as part of this performance. Psathas had the distinct honour of writing much of the ceremonial music for the opening and closing ceremonies of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games (as documented on the CD/DVD project View From Olympus) and despite the complexity of his music has engaged a wide range of listeners.

Auckland based composer Samuel Holloway also returns to NZTrio’s repertoire with his work stapes. Penned in 2005, stapes saw Holloway travel to the World Music Days festival in Hong Kong in 2007 and earning him the Asian Composers’ League Young Composers’ Award.

Heartbeats is rounded off by the music of Russian composer Anton Arensky, whose timeless work has become very much a standard within the realms of Romantic chamber music repertoire – and influenced by one of the greatest composers in history, Pyotr Tchaikovsky.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
