Their celebrated recordings include works by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Dvorak, Lalo and Shostakovich. With a strong commitment to expanding the piano trio repertoire, the Trio has commissioned and premiered over 75 works. Their most recent recording of piano trios by Ludwig van Beethoven was acknowledged with a 2011 Juno Award from Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences in the Best Classical Album: Solo and Chamber Music category. This was the Trio's second Juno Award, having previously won for their 2004 release Canadian Premieres, featuring new works by leading Canadian composers.

As Canada's pre-eminent ensemble, the Trio continues to be actively involved in teaching and nurturing future generations of both classical musicians and audiences. In addition to master classes at schools and universities across North America, the Gryphon Trio members are Artists-in-Residence at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Music and at Trinity College.

Strongly dedicated to pushing the boundaries of chamber music, the Trio has collaborated on special projects with clarinetist James Campbell, actor Colin Fox, choreographer David Earle, and a host of jazz luminaries at Toronto's Lula Lounge. Their most ambitious undertaking has been the groundbreaking multimedia production of Christos Hatzis' Constantinople, which has been performed in Canada and the United States, and was presented by the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden in England in 2006.
