Stephen Hutchings: Landscapes for the End of Time
The Gryphon Trio with James Campbell
Begins: Friday May 11, 2012
Canada’s acclaimed Gryphon Trio, with special guest clarinetist James Campbell, will perform at the Winnipeg Art Gallery in conjunction with the exhibition Stephen Hutchings: Landscapes for the End of Time. The performance will take place with the exhibition itself, and will be preceded by a talk by Stephen Hutchings.
The performance will include Valentin Silvestrov’s Fugitive Visions of Mozart, Alexina Loule’s Echoes of Time, and Olivier Messiaen’s epic Quartet for the End of Time, the inspiration for the works in the exhibition.
Consisting of Annalee Patipatnakoon, violin; Jamie Parker, piano; and Roman Borys, cello, the Gryphon Trio has firmly established itself as one of the world’s preeminent piano trios. With a repertoire that ranges from the traditional to the contemporary and from European classicism to modern-day multimedia, the Gryphons are committed to redefining chamber music for the 21st century.
Called by the Toronto Star “Canada’s preeminent clarinetist and wind soloist”, James Campbell has performed with over 50 symphony orchestras in most of the world’s major concert halls. He has collaborated and performed with many of the world’s great musicians, including Aaron Copland and Glenn Gould. He has toured with over 30 string quartets, including the Amadeus, Guarneri, Vermeer, New Zealand, St. Lawrence, Fine Arts, and Allegri String Quartets.
