Three esteemed soloists who are long-time colleagues and friends, the Triton Horn Trio formed in 2004 to present masterpieces from the horn repertoire. Prize-winners since their teen-age days, these three kindred spirits are excited to unite their distinguished and seasoned performing careers in this new ensemble which grew out of a performance of the Brahms Horn Trio. The Triton Horn Trio performs innovative programs of various combinations of solos and duos along with the trios of Brahms, Harbison, Lansky, Ligeti and others. Ms. Kavafian is an artist member of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center; Mr. Purvis is a frequent guest of that ensemble and a member of the New York Woodwind Quintet; and Ms. Lee is an artist member of the Boston Chamber Music Society.
