JAZZ OF FOUR CONTINENTS
AHN TRIO - "Blue album Tour" (KOR/USA)
Hailed as "exacting and exciting musicians" by the LA Times, the three sisters of the Ahn Trio (Lucia on the piano, Angella on the violin, and Maria on the cello) have earned a distinguished reputation for embracing 21st century classical music with their unique style and innovative collaborations. Ahn Trio is excited to announce release of their new album, “Blue” in the spring of 2017. Says Ahn Trio, Blue is a kind of a musical diary of Ahn Trio’s past and present, celebrating family of musicians, artists and leaders who have inspired us: us hanging out with Prince at Paisley Park, working with Pat Metheny on the piece Yuryung he wrote for us, performing Skylife at the Obama White House. Meeting incredible women leaders from all around the world at TED Women being invited to perform there, falling in love with Brazil and the bossa nova, exploring new colors with the great jazz musician Nguyen Le from Paris, collaborating with Kenji Bunch and Hyung-ki Joo of Igudesman & Joo, and our message expressed with “Little Wing,” the iconic Jimi Hendrix song arranged by D.D. Jackson, which fit very well into our vision, “She’s walking through the clouds, with a circus mind that’s running wild . . . fly on little wing.” Not only does it sum up how we feel about Blue, but how we feel about our art. May we all fly on.
The Ahn sisters were born in Seoul, Korea, and educated at the Juilliard School in New York City. Reflecting the two cultures they grew up in, the Trio brings a new energy and excitement to the chamber music world. Such luminary composers as Michael Nyman, Maurice Jarre, Pat Metheny, Paul Schoenfield, Mark O' Connor, Kenji Bunch, Nikolai Kapustin, and Paul Chihara have written works for them. The trio's latest CD, “Lullaby for My Favorite Insomniac” (released by Sony) is a showcase of their fearless creativity, which made No. 8 on the Billboard Charts for 26 weeks in the Classical album category. In two decades of touring, the Trio has performed in all 50 states and in over 30 countries, and has recorded six albums. The first, a recording of Ravel and Villa-Lobos trios brought rave reviews, with Audio Magazine praising "this is one of Ravel's best and never better played". The next EMI recording of trios by Dvorak, Suk, and Shostakovich, won Germany's prestigious ECHO Award.
PAT METHENY “Their willingness to play new music at such a high level is an inspiring and exciting quality that will continue to define the unique spot that they are carving for themselves in the music world.”
