Ahn Trio Ahn Trio

From the moment the Ahn Trio stepped onto the international music scene stage, they have defied categorization, broken musical barriers and revolutionized perceptions of classical music. They have become leaders in diversifying classical music in the 21st Century. Their trend-setting legacy continues with their fifth recording, Lullaby for my Favorite Insomnia, their debut CD on SONY BMG Masterworks (RCA Red Seal).

Korean-born and Juilliard-trained, the Ahns are sisters--violinist Angella, pianist Lucia and cellist Maria. The trio builds bridges between diverse musical genres and transcends any preconceptions that exist in the classical music scene by embracing 21st Century classical music as well as utilizing elements of new age, jazz, pop, folk, minimalism, avant-garde, chill, lounge and hip-hop. The trio works with composers who have many diverse influences, and the Ahns also continue to collaborate with many different types of artists.

“Every century has its own distinctive style of classical music,” states Angella, “and our album reflects classical music in the 21st Century which, of course, is influenced by all different types of music in this modern era. We live in New York City and can't help but be inspired by all the exciting new music and art around us. Incorporating these elements feels like an entirely organic progression to us. We don't purposely set out to be rebellious.”

Possessing an enviable combination of talent, style and beauty, the Ahn sisters have long been favorite subjects for the international press

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
