The piano trio has an honoured history in jazz, its perfect instrumental form making it ideal for both the spontaneous flexibility of jazz and its formal beauty. This evening’s concert by Ternary features the brilliant young Swiss pianist Marie Krüttli, one of France's most established drummers Christophe Lavergne, and the leader - Irish composer and bassist Ronan Guilfoyle. An age-old tradition in jazz is represented tonight where an established musician brings young talented musicians into his or her own groups. As part of Ronan's CCI residency (link to current residents), he will compose new music for this new group, which will be performed in three sections. Three musicians, three countries, three new compositions - good things sometimes come in threes!
