The Light Within

Public Trust Hall

Kaleidoscopes of refracted colour burst from the page, in this prismatic concert of luminous music. A world premiere by NZ/Canadian composer Nicholas Denton Protsack sits alongside meditative music by his compatriots R Murray Schafer and John Luther Adams, renowned for capturing the shifting colours of their wild northern landscapes. Other works in the light-themed programme are by NZ composer Leila Adu-Gilmore, Daniela Terranova (Italy) and Bree Van Ryk (Australia), rounded out by the dazzling final work Grammar of Dreams by Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho.
