The Varied Trio
Violin, piano, percussion
Three of Los Angeles’ premiere chamber musicians–Yuri Inoo, Aron Kallay, and Shalini Vijayan–form the Varied Trio, a fearless chamber ensemble dedicated to the music of the here and now. Explorations in color, rhythm, and melody are born from the unique combination of violin, piano, and percussion. The trio’s repertoire ranges from icons of the genre, such as Lou Harrison’s Varied Trio, to new works created specifically for the group by the leading composers of today.
Varied Trio, formed in the Spring of 2014, has been performing actively in Southern California. In the first season, the trio has premiered a work by Karl Kohn, and commissioned a piece by Takuma Itoh. In the 2014-2015 season, the trio premiered a work by Dennis Aman and Jason Heath. Future works to be premiered by the trio will include works by Tristan Koster, Brian Shephard, and Bill Alves.
The trio has performed and given masterclasses at schools such as Occidental College, CalArts, Pierce College, Harvey Mudd College, and took part is the Hear Now Festival and Tuesdays at MONK space concert series.
