Janaki String Trio brings together three virtuoso musicians whose passion and commitment have captivated both audiences and presenters alike. The ensemble takes its name from the Sanskrit word Janaki (YAHN-uh-kye), which symbolizes self-realization-- the underpinning artistic and spiritual ideal entwining composer, musician and listener. The Trio makes a unique connection with its audiences, not only with the standard works of the repertory, such as Beethoven's String Trio in C Minor, but also with rarely heard masterworks, such as Penderecki's gripping String Trio, as well as provocative new pieces. The trio won the 2006 Concert Artists Guild International Competition and the 2005 Annual Coleman Chamber Music Competition.
