This cutting-edge fusion of East and West brings together three of New
Zealand’s most explorative composers with Japan’s virtuosic Mayumi Miyata
(shō), Nanae Yoshimura (koto) and Tosiya Suzuki (recorder).
The Kiwis have
written new works, and they will be performed along with traditional Japanese
repertoire and works by Toshio Hosokawa, Osamu Kawakami and Takashi Tokunaga
that further showcase the trio’s exquisite playing.
The Miyata-Yoshimura-Suzuki Trio tour is generously
supported by Creative New Zealand, the Asia New Zealand Foundation, and the New
Zealand-Japan Exchange Programme.
