about

Since we started playing together in 2002 we have actively promoted the music of our fellow Kiwi composers. Through performances, regular commissions and previous recordings, we’ve been able to share this music with audiences around Aotearoa, and have proudly showcased NZ works at prestigious overseas festivals such as the Beijing Modern Music Festival in China, and the Århus Festival in Denmark. We love performing homegrown gems, and in the past dozen or so years every concert has included at least one New Zealand work.

The diversity of styles and the strength of New Zealand composition is evidenced in this latest collection. Of the seven works on offer, five are NZTrio commissions, while the other two (by Chris Gendall and Samuel Holloway) have become firm favourites of our repertoire. It is perhaps fitting that this album is being released in the centenary year of Douglas Lilburn’s birth, true testament that his legacy lives on strongly in the new generation of composers, of whom we’re enormously proud. We hope you enjoy delving into this music, discovering new sounds, energy, expression and sonic challenges along the way. And we offer big thanks to each of these extraordinarily talented composers for continuing to inspire us with their music.
