The Trio are equally known for their more immersive integrations of music and text in performance, ranging from their recital-theater piece built around Shakespeare’s Macbeth (Those Secret Eyes), to their debut album interweaving Ravel’s Trio with short pieces, poems, and diaries of the era (Ink, August, 2021), presented in the concert version Ink Spills. In their prolific arranging work, the Trio are committed to uplifting overlooked voices from history, ranging from Hildegard von Bingen to Lili and Nadia Boulanger, from Joséphine Baker to Irish folk melodies.
