From Gypsy to Jazz to Bach and Shostakovich and anything in between,
this classically trained ensemble has branched out into an exotic array of
genres to create something uniquely their own.
Trio Jackson is a family group who have been playing together for over
twenty years. This has created a magical musical synthesis born of their
intuitive, creative and empathetic ensemble expression.
A recently commissioned two-movement work, Gypsy Song & Gypsy
Dance, by English Composer Vincent Lindsey-Clark, is a perfect vehicle
for the trios authentic feeling for Gypsy music. Their classical training
allows them to present with authority and style the works by Shostakovich
and Bach which have been faithfully arranged by Miles. Their flair for
improvisation allows them to play Jazz in an exciting and very original style.
Trio Jackson has evolved from Duo Jackson when Miles and Margarita’s daughter Fleur rejoined them after completing her Master's Degree in
Violin Performance at Victoria University under Helena Pohl. Duo Jackson are well known for their numerous recordings and performances
throughout Australasia and Europe. Trio Jackson gave a very successful tour of concerts in North Island this year and have been invited to play in Europe
