Tippet Rise celebrates the synergy of art, architecture, music, and nature, out of which we weave our identities. Through interviews and conversations and by sharing extraordinary musical moments from the art center, the Tippet Rise podcasts explore these connections.
The Gryphon Trio and Calidore String Quartet at Tippet Rise: Talking about Perfect Halls and Great Chamber Music
Tippet Rise Art Center has a jewel box of a concert hall: the Olivier Music Barn. Audiences love it, and so do all the world-class musicians who come to Tippet Rise each year. Two great chamber music ensembles – the Gryphon Trio and the Calidore String Quartet – performed Tippet Rise the same weekend in September 2022, and sat for interviews in front of their audiences. As the name suggests, “chamber music” was created for intimate performance spaces – in Baroque palaces. You may not think that sounds intimate, but Joseph Haydn composed his music for the room in a European palace that the engineering and design firm Arup used as the model for the Olivier Music Barn.
Sharing Emotion through Technology
The evolution of music doesn’t happen by accident. To move from one era to the next is to find common values, use them as stepping stones, and organically develop them into something new.

Preserving A Moment
When Jim Ruberto is in the recording studio at Tippet Rise, his overarching mission is to preserve the performers’ intentions and the music’s profound emotional impact. To accomplish this, he must work to remove hundreds of noises from every live performance our audio team records—it's exacting work and a labor of love for our Assistant Audio Engineer.
