For their first outing with Rattle, NZTrio follow their critically acclaimed debut Spark (2005) with an album that keeps one foot on the shores of Aotearoa while taking listeners on a journey out through the Pacific Rim.
The thematic focus of bright tide moving between extends through a richly illustrated package, to provide a sensual aural and visual experience affirming that beauty is very much at home in contemporary classical music. The music reflects a distillation of some very finely honed live performances and a deepening of artistic focus, qualities that deservedly led to the album being nominated as a finalist at the 2008 NZ Music Awards (pipped at the post by Rattle's very own Inland, Michael Houstoun's excellent double disc set of New Zealand solo piano music: RAT-D016).
