Aroha Music Society
The Mazzoli Trio
The Mazzoli Trio formed in 2015 by University of Auckland Head of Music, Allan Badley, and Artistic Director of the Pettman National Junior Academy of Music, Edith Salzmann, consists of Shauno Isomura (violin), Julie Park (viola) and Sally Kim (cello).
The group quickly gained international attention after being invited to perform in the 2nd International PAMS Music Summit held in Beijing, China and the Mazzoli Trio performed concerts at the 2017 International Akaroa Music Summer Festival as the official ensemble in residence.
Their recital in Beijing was celebrated with a standing ovation for their engaging performance and were praised for presenting the most unique selection of works of the summit. Members of the group have individually gained success in their solo and chamber music field, taking them to perform concerts and recital tours all over the globe includingGermany, France, Italy, Scotland, China, Thailand, UK, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Australia, Malta and throughout New Zealand, very recently collaborating in concert with Jonathan Morton (Scottish Ensemble, UK) and Stephen De Pledge as a sextet, and Clio Gould (Royal Academy of Music, UK) in a Chamber Ensemble.
Members of the group are winners of all major chamber music competitions in New Zealand including the Pettman/Royal Overseas League Scholarship Competition (2013), CMNZ Secondary School Chamber Music Contest (2011 and 2012), the CMNZ Auckland Chamber Music Society Prize Competition (2014, 2015 and 2016) and are recipient of the Carl & Alberta Rosenfeldt Chamber Music Prize. Members have appeared as a concerto soloist with orchestras including the Baden Philharmonia Orchestra, Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and the University of Auckland Symphony Orchestra.
The Mazzoli Trio will be playing a wide ranging programme:
Anthony Ritchie, Schubert, Haydn, Françaix, the Dohnanyl serenade and Missy Mazzoli.
The Anthony Ritchie is simple and tuneful as one expects from a homage to Spring, the Schubert miniature dances along in a distinctly classical fashion while Françaix wrote a ‘Trio à cordes’ that can be spiky and frenetic – but at its heart is playful and perky. Missy Mazzoli has been described as one of the foremost female composers of our time and although little known here is highly regarded in the USA. The evening includes a serenade by Dohnanyi, a composer who dominated Hungarian music in the first half of the 20th Century and influenced the likes of Bartók and Kodály.
