A TRIO known as one of the finest chamber ensembles in the world is coming to town.

Violinist Annalee Patipatanakoon, cellist Roman Borys and pianist James Parker are the Gryphon Trio and the resident ensemble at the University of Toronto. The trio has recorded four CDs and in 2011, won its second Juno award for Classical Album of the Year for the recording of Beethoven’s “Ghost” Piano Trio, Op.70 No.1.

Patipatanakoon is a laureate of Belgium’s Queen Elizabeth International Violin Competition and one of Canada’s most respected violinists. She is an assistant professor in violin at the University of Toronto (U of T).

Borys studied cello with Janos Starker at Indiana University and Aldo Parisot at Yale University. He also teaches at U of T, is artistic director of the Ottawa Chamber Music Society, and producer for the Gryphon Trio.

Parker is a graduate of the University of BC, the Juilliard School and has made frequent appearances on CBC, Bravo, and many stations around the world. For more details, including tickets, see City Scene on page 12.
