Clarinet virtuoso James Campbell joins the Gryphon Trio for Messiaen’s legendary Quartet for the End of Time at SubCulture in New York City (Jan. 16). Next, the trio returns to the Celebrity Series of Boston (Jan. 24) for a performance of Mendelssohn’s Trio in D minor, Opus 49 as part of Rob Kapilow’s What Makes It Great? series.

To commemorate the upcoming 100th anniversary of WWI, the Gryphon Trio presents a program titled “Around the Great War” featuring works by Rebecca Clarke, Charles Ives and Maurice Ravel at The Schubert Club in St. Paul, Minnesota (Jan. 26).

The Gryphon Trio returns to Amherst College’s Buckley Hall (Jan. 31) with a program including works by Haydn, Shostakovich and Ravel, followed by a visit to Collins Center for the Arts at University of Maine (Feb. 2) performing works by Josef Haydn, Chan Ka Nin, Christos Hatziz and Felix Mendelssohn.

On February 4, the Gryphon Trio is once again joined by clarinettist James Campbell for Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time at the Sunset Center in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, and on February 7, the Gryphon Trio brings a program featuring music by Rebecca Clarke, Charles Ives and Felix Mendelssohn to the Boise Chamber Music Series.

Ukrainians around the world will celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Ukraine’s greatest poet, Taras Shevchenko in March 2014. To commemorate this event, the Gryphon Trio (with the support of the Shevchenko Foundation) commissioned Bohdana Frolyak based in Lviv, Ukraine to compose a new setting of Taras Shevchenko’s I dream a dream for violin, cello, piano and bass vocalist.
