Renowned piano trio brings 25th anniversary tour to Langley

The Gryphon Trio play Langley Community Music School’s Rose Gellert Hall Saturday, Jan. 27

One of Canada’s leading piano trios is coming to Langley.

The Gryphon Trio will perform at Langley Community Music School’s Rose Gellert Hall on Saturday, Jan. 27 at 7:30 p.m., as part of their 25-year anniversary tour.

Featuring violinist Annalee Patipatanakoon, cellist Roman Borys and pianist Jamie Parker, the Gryphon Trio is known for its highly refined, dynamic and memorable performances, ranging from the classics to contemporary.

The program will include Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) Piano Trio No. 45 in E-flat Major, Hob. XV:29 and Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) Piano Trio No. 1 in B Major, Op. 8, and the contemporary Canadian work of Dinuk Wijeratne (b. 1978) Love Triangle (2013).

The classical works of Brahms and Haydn are renowned for their depth, sensitivity and mystery, and the contemporary music of Dinuk Wijeratne’s Love Triangle (written specifically for Gryphon Trio) is rhapsodical.

The trio will also be giving a master class with LCMS students open to the public that same day from 2 to 4 p.m. Admission to that is free.

“I am especially happy to welcome back the Gryphon Trio who performed at LCMS several years ago to great acclaim,” said LCMS artistic director Elizabeth Bergmann.

“As Canada’s leading piano trio, we can expect to experience their remarkable musical collaboration and lively communication with one another. Their beautiful performances reflect 25 years of a personal and musical relationship that has been continuously evolving. LCMS is delighted the trio has included Langley on this special tour.”

The Gryphon Trio is considered one of the most committed commissioners and performers of current day Canadian composers. To date, they have premiered or commissioned more then 75 new works and frequently collaborate on projects that push the boundaries of chamber music.

The Trio tours regularly throughout North America and Europe and their 19 recordings are an encyclopedia of works for the genre. Honours include two Juno Awards for ‘Classical Album of the Year,’ and the prestigious 2013 Walter Carsen Prize for ‘Excellence in the Performing Arts’ from the Canada Council for the Arts.

The trio are currently Artists-in-Residence at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Music and Trinity College.

Tickets for the Saturday night performance are $25 for adults, $22 for seniors, $16 for students and $10 for LCMS students. Call the box office at 604-534-2848 or visit langleymusic.com to purchase.

The Rose Gellert Hall is located at 4899 207 St.
