Gryphon Baryton Trio
Laura Vaughan, baryton Katie Yap, viola Josie Vains, cello
Joyful music by Joseph Haydn written for the baryton -
King of Instruments, and Instrument of Kings.
The Gryphon Baryton Trio draws on the vivacity and combined chamber music and historical performance practice experience of Laura Vaughan (baryton), Katie Yap (Classical viola) and Josephine Vains (Classical cello). The little-known baryton is a rather magnificent Classical instrument, similar in size to a cello, with 6 gut bowed strings plus a course of 10 wire strings which resonate sympathetically and are also plucked like a harp. Reaching its zenith at the court of Prince Nikolaus Esterhazy in Vienna during the time of composer Joseph Haydn, there exists a significant repertoire of chamber music for baryton which is very rarely performed.
