Music

The Cygnus Trio is passionate about making a wide variety of music accessible to a wide variety of audiences. We have developed a unique repertoire, complementing our distinct instrumentation. From folk music to baroque trio sonatas, and passing through the very small extant repertoire from the 19th and 20th century written for flute, violin and guitar, we continue to build a core repertoire that is both challenging and engaging. In line with our vision of bringing the music of today to the forefront, an incredibly important mission of the trio has been the commissioning and performing of new works. In 2016 we commissioned Charles Zoll to write a piece for our summer tour, which became the eponymous track of our 2018 debut album Amalgam. Since then, the trio has collaborated with three other composers for the premieres of new pieces, which also appear on the album. We are currently working to arrange more folk songs for future programs, as well as honing our improvisational skills and even exploring the possibility of singing together to expand the possibilities of our repertoire.
