When the Junction Trio performs at Union College on Sunday afternoon, December 5, there will be a familiar presence on the stage. The violinist Stefan Jackiw has previously performed for Capital Region Classical twice and he was also soloist in the Brahms Concerto with the Albany Symphony Orchestra in 2018. This time he’s part of a team with pianist Conrad Tao and cellist Jay Campbell. Their program features trios by Zorn, Ives and Ravel.
Jackiw, 37, says he doesn’t mind sharing the bill. “It’s a pleasure to play with two people who have made me grow so much as a musician, expanding my taste and also my thinking about rehearsing and interpreting great music. Being in a trio has been a dream of mine since my 20s.”
