The Nimbus Trio (piano, violin and flute) plays works by Kitty Xiao.

Novum explores the sound world of composer Kitty Xiao from 2013 to 2016. Her works for flute/alto flute/bass flute/bass clarinet, violin and piano explore new expression for piano trio and evoke images of renowned Australian photographers Jane Brown and Narelle Autio.
