Three visionary next-generation artists—pianist Conrad Tao, violinist Stefan Jackiw, and cellist Jay Campbell—combine internationally recognized talents in the eclectic new ensemble, Junction Trio.
They were selected by New York’s classical music radio station, WQXR, to be part of their inaugural Artist Propulsion Lab, which allowed 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. All three members are recipients of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant.
This season, the Junction Trio performs diverse programs throughout the United States, pairing traditional piano trios such as the Ravel and Brahms Op. 8 with contemporary pieces including Christopher Trapani’s Passing Through, Staying Put and John Zorn’s Ghosts.
