Composed for jazz and classical piano trios, “Vicissitudes” was composed around a set of variations to explore the different approaches each group might bring to the same piece of music.

Intended as a way to offer something positive to the people of Christchurch in the wake of the devastating earthquake in 2011, “Vicissitudes” combines the disparate worlds of jazz and classical music to show the strength of the human spirit when faced with seemingly overwhelming obstacles.

“The suite takes the form of a theme (stated by solo piano) and variations, implicit in which are varying uses of the classical trio, and varying amounts of notation and improvisation. At the work’s heart is an evolution from post-apocalyptic eeriness to a more lyrical, elegiac and impressionistic world, and then a subtle strengthening that lies somewhere between stoicism and optimism. All the while the classical trio flits and swirls through Nock’s supple band as organically as leaves falling from a tree. The final piece, the traditional El Testamen Da Amelia, Nock plays alone, and this is worth the price of admission all by itself.” (John Shand)
