Warkworth Music opens its season with a concert by Trio Eclat, featuring three professional and accomplished young players performing on piano, flute and clarinet. The concert, entitled Children’s Games, will be held at Mahurangi College, on Sunday April 10 at 4 pm.
Pianist Evans Chuang is accompanist for the universities of Auckland and Canterbury and also the National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Art and the New Zealand Opera School.
Flautist Christine Kim has completed advanced studies at Freiburg Musikhochschule in Germany, and is also a Master of Music from Auckland University.
Rowan Meade is a Masters graduate in performance clarinet from the Sibelius Academy of Music in Helsinki, Finland and has played frequently with orchestras in that country as well as NZ.
Their performance next month will begin and end with a Brahms’ Hungarian Dance Suite, written originally for two pianos. Sonatine for flute and clarinet by the French composer, Jolivet, and two Chopin Etudes from Opus 25 and Villa Lobos Choros No. 2 make up the body of the programme, and Bizet’s Jeux D’enfants, a set of miniatures will complete a varied and interesting selection.
