Comprising violinists Nick Kendall and Charles Yang, and double bassist Ranaan Meyer, Time For Three joins online editor Davina Shum for a conversation about triple concertos. How does the group maintain the synergy of a chamber ensemble against the backdrop of a symphonic orchestra?

In light of commissioned works by Pulitzer-winning composers Kevin Puts and Jennifer Higdon, Nick, Charles and Ranaan share their approaches towards working together, as well as remotely during the pandemic, plus the boys share their favourite string techniques implemented on their new album Letters for the Future.  

Time For Three will perform Kevin Puts’s Contact on 28 July with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Erina Yashima at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. More information can be found here
