BIOGRAPHY

Triple Forte brings together three of Canada’s most prominent soloists.

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." (Toronto Star).

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.
