Born in Seoul, Korea, and educated at Juilliard, the members of the Ahn Trio—sisters Maria, Lucia and Angella—are redefining the art and architecture of 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 and Michael Nyman. The trio’s latest CD, Lullaby for My Favorite Insomniac, made No.8 on the Billboard charts in the U.S. and the special edition release is now available on the RCA Red Seal label.
The trio thrives on dissolving the barriers between art forms. They have fused their work with that of dancers, pop singers, DJ’s, electronic music artists, painters, installation artists, photographers and lighting designers. Next year, the Ahns will premiere Mark O’Conner’s Triple Concerto as well as Nikolai Kapustin’s second trio (Mr. Kapustin wrote his first and only trio for the Ahns). Wherever the Ahns go, they share their innovative spirit and ever-evolving vision of music.
