The Ahn Trio is made up of three Juilliard-trained Korean-American sisters, pianist Lucia, violinist Angella, and cellist Maria. The Trio has released 8 critically acclaimed albums on EMI Classics, Sony, and Warner. Their ever-evolving vision of 21st-century musicians has led to wide-ranging collaborations with modern dance companies, a B-boy dance company, film directors, rock bands, DJs, singers, and more, prompting New York Newsday to label them “classical revolutionaries." Pat Metheny and other luminary composers such as Michael Nyman, Maurice Jarre, Mark
O'Connor and DJ Spooky have written music for them.
In 2011, President Obama invited the Ahn Trio to perform at the White House.The Ahns have performed at the prestigious TED conference and was the only classical group to be invited to perform at iTunes Festival 2008 in London. Ahn Trio’s album Lullaby for My Favorite Insomniac, released by Sony, was No. 8 in the Billboard Charts for 26 weeks. Their Dvorak, Suk, and Shostakovich album on EMI won Germany's prestigious ECHO Award. People Magazine selected the sisters three of '50 Most Beautiful People' in 2003. Their unique approach to music has taken the sisters to Buenos Aires’ Teatro Colon, Vienna’s Musikverein, New York's Lincoln Center, Leipzig's Gewandhaus, Beijing's Concert Hall, Istanbul's Aya Irini in Topkapi Palace, to over 30 countries and every state in America.
Ahn Trio is excited to announce the release of their new album BLUE in the spring of 2017. Says the Trio, “BLUE is a musical diary recorded for Lucia’s son, Blue, of the Trio’s past and present: being invited to jam with Prince at Paisley Park, working with Pat Metheny on the piece Yuryung, performing Skylife at the Obama White House, having the honor of performing at TEDWomen and meeting extraordinary female leaders from around the globe.” With their album BLUE, the Ahns share their pioneering and creative spirit with both old and new fans.
