THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED
Forget everything you thought you knew about traditional chamber music! With an appetite for discovery and creative innovation, the globally acclaimed, Toronto-based Gryphon Trio pushes the boundaries of classical music to redefine this genre for the 21st century. Cellist Roman Borys, violinist Annalee Patipatanakoon, and pianist Jamie Parker have performed together for over 25 years. Delight in a performance that the Los Angeles Times has called “big, bold, and almost orchestral.”
The Trio’s program for this evening will be:
Beethoven: Trio in E-flat major, Op. 1, No. 1
With a repertoire that ranges from traditional to contemporary and from European classicism to modern-day multimedia, the Gryphon Trio has commissioned over 85 new works and frequently collaborates on projects that push the boundaries of Classical music. Its 15 recordings include works by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Dvorak, Lalo and Shostakovich. In addition, Christos Hatzi’s multimedia work Constantinople – produce by the Gryphon Trio in partnership with Banff Centre, Tapestry New Opera, Ex Machina, and Music Toronto – continues to enrapture audiences in venues such as the Royal Opera House and Linbury Studio.
The Gryphon Trio was formed in 1993 by three members of the Faculty of Music of the University of Toronto, and today the Trio tours regularly throughout North America and Europe.
This event includes a cash bar.
