In this dazzling finale to the NZTrio 2016 Loft Series, FLARE throws the spotlight on NZTrio’s exciting collaboration with opera superstar Simon O’Neill. The collaboration illuminates a broad spectrum of music, including an evocative new commission from New Zealander Juliet Palmer, re-imaginings of a Bach Cantata and the charming Lieder of Robert Kahn. Fresh new arrangements of Mahler's Songs of a Wayfarer as well as a glorious set of Richard Strauss songs complete this evening of colourful brilliance.


Robert Kahn: Three Lieder, Opus 46
Johann Sebastian Bach: Cantata BWV 82 - Ich habe genug
Juliet Palmer (NZ): Vermilion Songs - New commission and World Premiere
Gustav Mahler: Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen - Songs of a Wayfarer (arr. Ken Young)
Richard Strauss: Four Lieder, Opus 27 (arr. Alex Taylor)
