The 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.
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 Canadian. This 2013 fusion of Middle-eastern melody with Indian time cycles and virtuosic solo cadenzas may generate tarab.
Haydn: Trio in E-flat major, XV:29
Dinuk Wijerante: Love Triangle
Mendelssohn: Piano Trio in C minor, Op. 66
