COME FACE TO FACE WITH THE SOLOISTS OF STROMA.
An intimate evening of poignant and compelling ‘musical conversations’, featuring tributes to recently passed composers Jenny McLeod and Kaija Saariaho, alongside three works by the next generation of New Zealand composers, and a work by lesser-known Canadian composer Norma Beecroft. The programme features two world premieres: and finding air between us by Marcus Jackson and Waipu by David Mason. It will also be the chance to hear Liam Furey’s Disturbances III: Light composed last year, which creates a parallel between the way that matter and energy interact with each other and the musical interferences and disturbances present in the score
