Galan Trio’s Kinesis,” a survey on the music of contemporary American composers in an original, multifaceted concert program. The project draws from a collaboration between Galan Trio and professors of composition from selected US Universities, and from the notion of “Kinesis.”  Kinesis is an undirected movement of a cell, organism, or part, in response to an external stimulus. In Greek, Kinesis means movement, motion. Motion is a fundamental characteristic of all living beings; motion is what all musicians worldwide have desired during the last couple of years; motion alludes to continuity and it’s a promise for the future of “Kinesis” itself.

The first edition of the project featured the work of five composers who contributed one original work for piano trio reflecting on the period of the pandemic. Galan Trio counts four editions by now in East Coast, Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and South Central regions and works by Yiorgos Vassilandonakis, Martin Gendelman, Matthew Greenbaum, David Martynuik, Ken Steen, Alex Lubet, Navid Bargrizan, Larry Alan Smith and Richard Lavenda among others. The April 2024 edition in California features the work of Robert Denham, David Carter, Christopher Dobrian, Kevin Zhang, Pamela Madsen, Joao Pedro Oliveira, Deborah Kavasch, Ines Thibaut, Cindy Cox and Patricia Alessandrini.
