Triple Forte brings together three of Canada’s most prominent
Violinist Jasper Wood, cellist Denise Djokic and pianist David Jalbert
have joined forces to create this sought-after piano trio.
They have captured critics’ and audiences’ attention
with their passion, intelligence and sensitivity, not to mention
the sheer joy that they bring to the stage: “This was a splendid
concert. I’d miss sunshine, football or Santa for music like
this any day.” (The Globe and Mail).
Their debut album, released on ATMA in 2012, is dedicated to early
20th century masterpieces by Ravel, Shostakovich and Ives. It was
awarded the Prix Opus for Album of the Year (modern and contemporary
music) and was nominated for a Juno Award, having drawn rave reviews:
"Triple Forte, in musical terms, means as loud as possible,
but this all-Canadian piano trio excels in fine nuance, not noise…
Changing rhythmic and expressive gears with deceptive ease, Triple
Forte entrance with their single-minded grace, finding sensible
balance between musical muscle and subtle expression throughout."
Triple Forte was born in 2003 and was an instant success, performing
over 35 concert in its first active season. Tours have now taken
the group to all corners of Canada and the United States. They have
recorded several broadcasts for CBC radio, showcasing an already
wide-ranging repertoire, and recently premiered a new work entitled
“Utter”, by composer Reiko Yamada.
