Stratus is the first of our 2021 subscription series. It begins by enveloping us in a foggy blanket of sound, with the dark, sumptuous depths of Rachmaninoff’s Trio élégiaque and Suk’s yearning Elegie, sandwiched around the cosy, rustic nature of Haydn’s sunny G Major trio. Claire Cowan’s Ultra Violet shimmers through the spectrum with its millions of colours; in Reuben De Lautour’s new commission an auscultation of water we sink into the undulations of an aquatic heart beat; and we ascend again, evaporating into the melancholy, linear architecture of the Chausson Trio, reminiscent of Aotearoa’s eponymous threads of clouds hugging the horizon.
