NCMA Lunchtime Series: Trio Jackson ‘Violin and Guitar’
Trio Jackson are a family group who have been playing together for over twenty years. This has created a magical musical synthesis born of their intuitive, creative and empathetic ensemble expression.
The essence of great music is often found in the traditional Folk melodies and musical forms from around the World. Trio Jacksons’ awareness of this along with their eclectic tastes and craftsmanship allow them to offer their listeners a wonderfully diverse palette of musical colours and emotions, expressed with virtuosity, passion and beauty.
A recently commissioned two movement work, ‘GypsyDance’ by English Composer Vincent Lindsey-Clark is a perfect vehicle for the trios authentic feeling for Gypsy music. Their classical training allows them to present with authority and style the three pieces by Shostakovich which have been faithfully arranged by Miles. ‘ Violet Blue’ an original work for the trio composed by Margarita and Miles displays their understanding of engaging rhythms, Jazz and beautiful harmonies.
