Born in Seoul, Korea, and educated at The Juilliard School, the Ahn Trio—sisters Maria, Lucia, and Angella — is redefining chamber music, breathing new life into the standard piano trio literature with commissioned works from visionary composers like Pat Metheny, Kenji Bunch, Maurice Jarre, Nikolai Kapustin, Michael Nyman, and Mark O’Connor. Their pop-up concerts to celebrate their latest CD, Blue, took them to Europe with sell-out performances in Madrid, Florence, Hamburg, and Prague and then back to New York with concerts at Joe’s Pub, Helsinki-Hudson and New Jersey’s Weehawken Hudson Riverfront. An earlier CD, Lullaby for My Favorite Insomniac, made No.8 on the Billboard charts in the U.S. The Ahns thrive on dissolving the barriers between art forms. They have collaborated with visual artists and dancers, most recently with Nai-Ni Chen Dance in A Quest for Freedom, and James Sewell Ballet. In 2011, President Obama invited the Ahn Trio to perform at the White House for a State Dinner honoring South Korea. Hailed as “exacting and exciting musicians” by the LA Times, the Ahn Trio is in high demand across the US and around the world. Wherever the Ahns go, they share their innovative spirit and ever-evolving vision of music.
