Artist info

Sundance Trio: Jed Moss (piano), Geralyn Giovannetti (oboe) and Christian Smith (bassoon)

Sundance Trio was formed in 2005 to explore and perform trios written for oboe, bassoon and piano. Based in Utah, members of the trio include oboist Geralyn Giovannetti and bassoonist Christian Smith. They are faculty colleagues at Brigham Young University’s School of Music where they also perform together in the resident woodwind quintet, Orpheus Winds. Pianist Jed Moss is a much sought after solo and collaborative artist.

Together the trio has performed throughout the United States at colleges, chamber music series and at conferences. The trio has a repertoire of over fifty works and actively seeks to encourage new compositions. In 2007 the Barlow Endowment awarded Sundance Trio a commission. The resulting work, Lyric Essay by Canadian composer, Malcolm Forsyth was premiered at the 2008 International Double Reed Society conference.

In 2009 the Sundance Trio released their debut CD Recording on the Centaur Records label. The CD includes premiere recordings of works by American composers Margi Griebling-Haigh and David Sargent.

They are truly a magnificent ensemble. Each artist is a talented and skillful musician, and since they have performed together so often, their ensemble playing is as good as it gets! This is a marvelous CD-full of interesting, new, and mostly uplifting music for an oboe-bassoon-piano ensemble.

— IDRS Journal

Each musician brings understanding of the works and performs with a particular sensitivity suited to the other performers

— American Record Guide

The ensemble play is also fabulous. It's a remarkable collaborative effort by three like-minded musicians who are equals in musicality and technical astuteness. This is a very fine album, both in the performances and in its conception.

— Salt Lake Tribune

 

Sundance Trio is currently under contract with Centaur Records for their second CD recording to be released in 2012. This disc will include works by Jenni Brandon, Bill Douglas, Peter Hope and Michael Head.
