City Gallery Wellington, Civic Square, 101 Wakefield St, Wellington


All Ages



Stroma's first incursion into the City Gallery Wellington will bring its gorgeous space to life with reverberant sonic colour.

In this New Zealand-only concert, four works by NZ composers will provide 70 minutes of raw musical abandon: the world premiere of Jeroen Speak’s beguiling Eratosthene’s Sieve, a compressed concert version of Michael Norris’s Timedance, based on a deconstruction of Bach’s Suite in B minor, Alison Isadora’s quirky work for string quartet, in which the players have to operate percussion instruments with their feet, and Jack Body’s Interior, a work from 1987 for ensemble and field recordings that, as far as we’re aware, has never been performed in Wellington.

Stroma is New Zealand’s most flexible mixed chamber ensemble, able to draw from a large pool of players, many of whom are principals with the NZSO. Focusing on music written in the last 100 years, Stroma has been playing at the highest levels of excellence in the country for over a decade, performing regularly with a repertoire of fresh, cutting-edge compositions, including over 80 works by NZ composers.

Michael Norris - Timedance (reduced concert version)
Alison Isadora - Points of Departure
Jeroen Speak - Eratosthene’s Sieve
Jack Body - Interior
