Strings Theory Trio was set to perform again at one of our favorite venues, the Loring-Greenough House in Jamaica Plain on March 15, 2020. But, alas, it was not to be. I'm sure we'll have another opportunity to play there in the future.
Combining idiomatic flexibility, a deep wellspring of creativity, and world-class virtuosity, violinist Mimi Rabson is one of the Boston area’s most valuable musical resources. Her ensemble, Strings Theory Trio, is a uniquely compelling synthesis of classical chamber music and directed improvisation, bringing together some of Rabson's most important influences and inspirations. With Rabson and Helen Sherrah-Davies on five string violins and Junko Fujiwara on cello, STT supercharges the intimate atmosphere of chamber music with a triple dose of edgy, daring improvisation. The listener is treated to experiencing Western classical tradition anew; the surging counterpoint and crystalline instrumental sonorities gain new resilience and allure from their origin in the inspiration of the moment. Simultaneously delicate and dangerous, STT's music is richly nuanced and deeply satisfying.
