The Morton Trio is a Christchurch-based ensemble bringing a bold and soaring musical experience to audiences countrywide.

Together they deliver original, intense chamber music with orchestral scope, with the promise of wowing concertgoers from start to finish.

The remarkable programme features the two great sextets written for clarinet, horn, piano, and strings. Riveting from the first bars, they open with Dohnányi’s rich and exhilarating Sextet, followed by what is considered Penderecki’s finest chamber achievement—two majestic works that allow all six performers to shine with virtuosic brilliance and musicality.

New Zealand’s Morton Trio was established in 2017. Delighting their audiences with canonical classics from Brahms and Ligeti, the innovative ensemble is committed to discovering and performing lesserknown works from the genre, as well as expanding the horn trio repertoire through new commissions and arrangements.
