(WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass.) – The Gryphon Trio performs works by Haydn, Shostakovich, and Schubert in a free concert in Brooks-Rogers Recital Hall on the Williams College campus on Tuesday, April 7 at 8pm. The Gryphon Trio has firmly established itself as one of the world’s preeminent trios, with a repertoire that ranges from the traditional to the contemporary and from European classicism to modern-day multimedia.

The Gryphon Trio is composed of Annalee Patipatanakoon, violin; Roman Borys, cello; and James Parker, piano, and is strongly dedicated to pushing the boundaries of chamber music. In this performance, part of Williams’ Visiting Artist series, the Gryphon Trio performs Haydn’s Trio in E Major, Shostakovich’s Trio No. 2 in E Minor, op. 67, and Schubert’s Trio No. 1 in B-flat Major for piano, violin, and cello.

The Gryphon Trio has commissioned and premiered over 50 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.

Master classes featuring talented Williams music students under the guidance of the Gryphon Trio take place at 4:15 p.m. on April 7 in Brooks-Rogers Recital Hall, Chapin Hall, and room 30 of the Bernhard Music Center. These free events are open to the public.

Brooks-Rogers Recital Hall is located at 54 Chapin Hall Drive in Bernhard Music Center on the Williams College campus.
