Join the Touch Tour and Artist Talk before the performance

A true festival coup, we present internationally renowned New Zealand composer John Psathas’ immersive world premiere featuring six grand pianos and a sweeping digital audio landscape, with a Steve Reich work as icing on the cake.

Taking inspiration from the poetic documentary Planetary, you’ll be transported around the world with sounds and music from the Amazon jungle, outer space (literally), Japan, Armenia, Africa, the Mahabharata, Aotearoa forests, roaring multitudes, predators from the wild, cataclysmic weather events, Tibetan meditation, and more than a dozen musical genres… all in 45 minutes. 

Leading New Zealand pianists Stephen De Pledge, Arts Foundation Laureate Michael Houstoun, Somi Kim, Jian Liu, Sarah Watkins and Liam Wooding form a rare combination of instrumental heft and world-class talent – so rare, in fact, that as an extra treat we also present Six Pianos by groundbreaking and award-winning US composer, Steve Reich.

“I discovered Six Pianos when I was about 17, but it took time before I understood its austere beauty. You’re exploring a single chord as though you’re peeling a fruit, pressing the flesh, eating it.”

pianist Christophe Chassol, The Guardian
