Each of us in Spektral followed a different path into this improbable life as chamber musicians, but one thing we all share is the unyielding support from our families. Our collaborators for this genealogical blow-out include Clara’s parents (violinist Jim Lyon and cellist Carol Lyon), Maeve’s dad (pianist Alan Feinberg), Doyle’s sister (violist Rose Armbrust Griffin), and Russ’s mom (pianist Jill Johnson).
