About This Performance

Three visionary artists combine talents in this new and eclectic piano trio which was just announced as members of WQXR’s Artist Propulsion Lab, a brand new initiative that aims to support New York-metropolitan based artists who have been impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Making its PCMS debut, JCT is composed of violinist Stefan Jackiw, recognized for combining poetry and purity with an impeccable technique; pianist Conrad Tao, an internationally known pianist and composer; and cellist Jay Campbell, a member of the renowned JACK Quartet. After a performance in 2019, a Boston Globe critic raved, “Watching the trio perform, one really couldn’t tell who was happier to be there—the rapt audience or the musicians, who threw themselves into repertoire they clearly love.”
