The Gryphon Trio - Sept. 14

gryphon2The Gryphon Trio is back for the fifth time (in ten years), which is probably a record for our Series. No one who witnessed their transcendent performance of Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time with clarinetist James Campbell in April of 2017 will forget them—an unprecedented number of written expressions of transformation and joy (long) followed this concert. Back in 2009, the Gryphons introduced themselves with Ka-Nin, Cha’s and the masks evoke . . . complete with a stunning visual display of mask art of the Pacific Northwest.

Recently celebrating its 20th anniversary, the Gryphon Trio has impressed international audiences and the press with its highly refined, dynamic performances, and has firmly established itself as one of the world’s preeminent piano trios. This season,Annalee Patipatanakoon, Roman Borys and Jamie Parker will bring us an exuberant Hob. XV in E-flat by Josef Haydn, Mendelssohn’s stirring C Minor Trio, and Love Triangle by Juno-Award-winning Dinuk Wijeratne, a Sri-Lankan-born Canadian. This 2013 fusion of Middle-eastern melody with Indian time cycles and virtuosic solo cadenzas may generate tarab.
