Hailed for its “bracing technique and jaw-dropping precision…a sense of unity, especially in dynamics and rhythmic thrust…” (Aspen Times), experience the Trio’s superb musicianship to hear why The Boston Globe called them “powerful…these three are onto something special.”

“The ensemble performed with a manic drive, sailing through the note-spattered pages and rhythmic complexities with apparent ease.” – Bachtrack

Three visionary next-generation artists combine internationally recognized talents in the eclectic new ensemble, Junction Trio. The Trio has performed at Washington Performing Arts, Portland Ovations, Rockport Music, Chautauqua Institution, Royal Conservatory in Toronto, and the Aspen Music Festival.

This season, the Junction Trio gives performances in Rockport, Moab, New Orleans, Key West, and Eugene, as well as at Shriver Hall Concert Series, Duke Performances, and Cliburn Concerts in Ft. Worth. The Junction Trio was selected by New York’s classical music radio station, WQXR, to be part of its inaugural Artist Propulsion Lab, which allows them to engage collaborators and commission works. The opportunity also allows them to take advantage of WQXR’s various outlets to reach audiences via Greene Space performances, on-air curation opportunities, and more.

In the 2020-2021 season, live and virtual performances were presented by Caramoor, Harvard Musical Association, Corpus Christi, Cleveland, and Philadelphia Chamber Music societies, Syracuse Friends of Chamber Music, and Emory University. Highlights of the 2019-2020 season included debuts at the Orange County Philharmonic Society and BIG ARTS Sanibel.

Admired for combining poetic interpretation with impeccable technique, violinist Stefan Jackiw joins cellist Jay Campbell and pianist and composer Conrad Tao, whom The New York Times has called a musician of “probing intellect and open-hearted vision.” Campbell, too, has been praised by The New York Times as “electrifying,” approaching old and new works with the same curiosity and emotional commitment while Jackiw has been celebrated for his “remarkable purity of tone.”

“Watching the trio perform, one really couldn’t tell who was happier to be there—the rapt audience or the musicians, who threw themselves into repertoire they clearly love.” – Boston Globe
