Celebrate our musical cultural heritage with a journey of discovery through collaboration, innovation and inspiration. Witness the special connection between composer and performer and the evolving process of composition through to performance.

As part of Chamber Music New Zealand's Our Music Composer Connections tour during New Zealand Music Month this concert features NZTrio performing a programme specially curated by New Zealand composers with the ensemble in mind, showcasing music that deeply influences them in their work.

Composers Alex Taylor, Karlo Margetic and Claire Cowan on collaborating...
