“Excitement may be the best word to characterize the JCT Piano Trio.”— Lincoln Star Journal
Three renowned visionary artists of the next generation combine talents in this eclectic new piano trio, JCT (pronounced “junction”). Violinist Stefan Jackiw has been recognized for musicianship that combines poetry and purity with an impeccable technique. Pianist Conrad Tao, who appears worldwide as a pianist and composer—including two previous Cliburn Concerts appearances—has been dubbed a musician of “probing intellect and open-hearted vision” by The New York Times. Approaching both old and new works with the same curiosity and emotional commitment, cellist Jay Campbell has been called “electrifying” by The New York Times. Recent concerts of the trio have included performances at Washington Performing Arts, Portland Ovations, and the Royal Conservatory in Toronto.
