The first Concert of the 2019 Trio Jackson Concert Series

Trio Jackson.
From Nelson New Zealand
From Gypsy to Jazz to Shostakovich and anything in between, this classically trained ensemble has branched out into an exotic array of genres to create something uniquely their own.
Trio Jackson is 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 colors 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’ original work for the trio composed by Margarita and Miles displays their understanding of engaging rhythms, Jazz and beautiful harmonies.
Trio Jackson has evolved from Duo Jackson when Miles and Margarita’s daughter Fleur rejoined them after completing her Masters Degree in Violin Performance at Victoria University under Helena Pohl .
Duo Jackson are well known for their numerous recordings and performances throughout Australasia and Europe. Trio Jackson will be touring in the North Island this year and have been invited to play in Europe in 2020 and will give performances in France Spain and Italy.
