Gryphon Trio with guest violist Masumi Per Rostad - Apr. 8, 2022

Here’s a BCMS record: The Gryphon Trio first performed on our Series in 2009, and yet next season will mark their 6th concert for us. The endlessly inventive 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.  With a repertoire that ranges from the traditional to the contemporary and from European classicism to modern-day multimedia, the Gryphons are committed to redefining chamber music for the 21st century.

The ensemble-in-residence at Music Toronto for eleven years, the Gryphon Trio tours extensively throughout North America and Europe. Recent performances include those for the Chamber Music Society of Detroit, Northwestern, the Eastman School of Music, Tippet Rise, and Williams College. The Trio – strongly dedicated to pushing the boundaries of chamber music – has commissioned and premiered over seventy new works from established and emerging composers around the world, and has collaborated on special projects with clarinetist James Campbell, actor Colin Fox, choreographer David Earle, and a host of jazz luminaries at Lula Lounge, Toronto’s leading venue for jazz and world music. Their most ambitious undertaking to date is a groundbreaking multimedia production of composer Christos Hatzis’s epic work Constantinople, scored for mezzo-soprano, Middle-Eastern singer, violin, cello, piano, and electronic audiovisual media, which they have brought to audiences across North America and at the Royal Opera House in London.
