JCT Trio: Stefan Jackiw, violin; Jay Campbell, cello; Conrad Tao, piano

Three renowned visionary artists of the next generation combine talents in this eclectic new piano trio, JCT (pronounced ‘junction’). Violinist Stefan Jackiw, recognized for musicianship that combines poetry and purity with an impeccable technique, returns with pianist Conrad Tao and cellist Jay Campbell. Tao, who appears worldwide as a pianist and composer, 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, Campbell has been called “electrifying” by "The New York Times."
