Stephen Gosling (piano)
Jeremy Fitzsimons (percussion)
New Zealand String Quartet
Like an injection of adrenalin direct to the heart of New Zealand classical music comes this new album of chamber music by John Psathas, featuring Jeremy Fitzsimons (percussion), Stephen Gosling (piano) and the New Zealand String Quartet. A work by John Psathas is an individual unique entity. His 'sound' is difficult to define – the harmony and improvisational feeling of jazz, the compelling rhythmic drive and excitement of rock music and the sustained repetitive textures of minimalism are apparent as influences, yet they combine and intermingle with something else less tangible. His is one of the most original voices in the arena of New Zealand contemporary music.
