Congratulations to Londoner's Angela Park and Sharon Wei, and their fellow artists Elissa Lee and Trey Lee for their win at the June 2021 Juno awards for their recording of "Mosaique". Serenata Music had the pleasure of featuring the Ensemble playing this work in November 2018. The work is composed of pieces by Canadian composers from various parts of Canada which included visuals of the places the music described. We have extended felicitations to the group on behalf of the Serenata Music family.
Serenata Music is proud of the fact that we feature Canadian musicians who are being acknowledged here and abroad.
As soon as the pandemic subsides we hope to announce plans for the 2022 Serenata music season.

Biographies

TRIPLE FORTE
JASPER WOOD, Violin, DAVID JALBERT, piano, YAGOR DYACHKOV, Cello
Serenata Music welcomes Triple Forte back to London. Triple Forte brings together three of Canada’s most prominent soloists. Violinist Jasper Wood, cellist Yegor Dyachkov and pianist David Jalbert have joined forces to create this sought-after piano trio. They have captured critics’ and audiences’ attention with their passion, intelligence and sensitivity, not to mention the sheer joy that they bring to the stage: “This was a splendid concert. I’d miss sunshine, football or Santa for music like this any day.” (The Globe and Mail).
Triple Forte was born in 2003 and was an instant success, performing over 35 concert in its first active season. Tours have now taken them through Ontario, Québec, British Columbia, Newfoundland, the Maritime provinces and California. The group has recorded several broadcasts for CBC radio, showcasing an already wide-ranging repertoire. Their first disc, released on ATMA in 2012, is dedicated to early 20th-century masterpieces by Ravel, Shostakovich and Ives and drew rave reviews: ” Triple Forte, in musical terms, means as loud as possible, but this all-Canadian piano trio excels in fine nuance, not noise… Changing rhythmic and expressive gears with deceptive ease, Triple Forte entrance with their single-minded grace, finding a sensible balance between musical muscle and subtle expression throughout.” (Toronto Star)
Violinist JASPER WOOD has established himself as a major talent of his generation. He made his first public appearance at the age of five, and has since captured the hearts of music lovers everywhere with his “thrilling virtuosity” (The Strad) and his “sweet tunefulness edged in melancholy” (Washington Post). An acclaimed competition winner, Wood has developed a flourishing reputation as a sought-after soloist with major orchestras including Canada’s Montreal and Toronto Symphonies and as a recital/chamber musician throughout North America and Europe. He has been awarded both the coveted Sylva Gelber Prize (1996) and the prestigious Virginia Parker Award (2004) from the Canada Council for the Arts. Mr. Wood has ten solo and violin/piano CD recordings on the Endeavor Classics, Analekta, Centrediscs, Disques Pelleas and Naxos labels. Jasper Wood is professor of violin at the University of British Columbia.
“YAGOR DYACHKOV is undoubtedly a cellist of great stature: the natural bowing, the rich, deep sound, the total concentration, the interpretative sense, he has it all.” (La Presse, Montréal). Cellist Yegor Dyachkov was named Canadian “Artist of the Year” in 2000. An impressive recitalist, soloist, and chamber musician, he tours internationally, and his performances are broadcast and televised in Canada and abroad. His schedule includes invitations from the Évian, Kronberg, Tanglewood and Vancouver festivals as well as from the Geneva Chamber Orchestra, the Royal Phiharmonic of Flanders, the Montréal Symphony Orchestra and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Yegor Dyachkov has premiered works dedicated to him such as the Sonata by Jacques Hétu, Ironman by Michael Oesterle, as well as Menuhin : Présence by the late André Prévost. Winning the Orford International Competition led to an invitation from the Chandos label to record his debut CD in 1997. His other acclaimed recordings can be found on the Brioso, Pelléas and Analekta labels. Born in Moscow in 1974, Yegor Dyachkov‘s principal mentors have been Aleksandr Fedorchenko in Moscow, Yuli Turovsky in Montréal and Boris Pergamenschikow in Cologne.
Pianist DAVID JALBERT, with his personal style, incomparable stage presence and refined ear, has made himself one of the flag-bearers of the new generation: “Jalbert dazzles with skill, style and taste… with all the finesse and exuberance a listener could want” (Toronto Star). Mr. Jalbert won several competitions, the Canada Council’s Sylva Gelber award, and earned a Gold Medal of the Governor General for his Masters Degree (Université de Montréal). His studies also took him to Toronto’s Glenn Gould School and to the Juilliard School in New York. His first solo disc (works of Corigliano and Rzewski, released on Endeavour Classics in 2004) was followed up in 2006 by his acclaimed recording of Fauré’s Complete Nocturnes. He also recorded twice with cellist Denise Djokic, with whom he earned a Juno nomination in 2005 for Folklore. He recently recorded Bach’s Goldberg Variations which he played for Serenata Music in November, 2011. David Jalbert is professor of piano at the University of Ottawa and performs regularly across North America.
