For over 25 years, the Gryphon Trio has firmly established itself as one of the world’s preeminent piano trios, garnering acclaim and impressing international audiences with its highly refined, dynamic and memorable performances. With a repertoire that ranges from traditional to contemporary and from European classicism to modern-day multimedia, the Gryphons are committed to redefining chamber music for the 21st century.
Creative innovators with an appetite for discovery and new directions, the Gryphon Trio has commissioned over 85 new works and frequently collaborates on projects that push the boundaries of classical music. The trio tours regularly throughout North America and Europe, and their 23 recordings are an encyclopedia of works for the genre. Honours include three 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.
Deeply committed to community engagement and education, the Gryphons conduct master classes and workshops at universities and conservatories and are artists-in-residence at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Music and Trinity College. Since 2010, the trio’s ground-breaking outreach program, Listen Up!, has inspired and engaged 16 Canadian communities to collaborate on large-scale multi-faceted arts creation projects.
The Gryphon Trio gave acclaimed concerts on STI’s Majestic Rhine Cruise from Amsterdam to Zurich in 2019.
