A swiftly emerging creative force, violist Radia a.k.a Ryan Davis joins the Gryphon Trio in presenting a luminous new musical experience, harnessing live looping and electronics that intertwine the sound worlds of classical, folk, electronic and hip-hop traditions. The program will feature Radia’s original compositions and visuals, as well as Dinuk Wijeratne’s stunning Love Triangle for piano trio and will conclude with Johannes Brahms’ celebrated Piano Quartet in g minor. This performance closely coordinates with the trio’s 30th anniversary of playing together.
