Gryphon Trio – December 2015

Next Thursday we welcome the Gryphon Trio back to our stage! The evening includes Beethoven (Trio in C Minor Op. 1, No. 3), a new piece by Vincent Ho (Gryphon Realms – a world premiere), Piano Trio in F-sharp Minor by Arno Babajanian, and new pieces composed by grade 11 students from the Gryphon Trio Young Composers Program with the Claude Watson Arts Program.

Many of our patrons are already familiar with the Gryphon Trio (Annalee Patipatanakoon, violin; Roman Borys, cello; Jamie Parker, piano). They have performed for us for 20 years now (and have been in existence for 22 years), eight of those as our ensemble-in-residence.

Instead of trying to find something new to tell you about the Gryphon, I thought it might be more fun to hear about them from them! Below are a number of video clips with various interviews from over the years.
