On Saturday evening, a rare NYC pop-up concert by the in-demand Ahn Trio marks the end of the first year of the Rizzoli exciting Music Aperitivo Series. The programme for the concert will feature music from BLUE, the trio’s latest album showcasing its wide-ranging interests and influences, as well as other releases from the Ahn Trio’s wide-ranging discography.
The Ahn Trio is made up of three Juilliard-trained Korean-American sisters, pianist Lucia, violinist Angella, and cellist Maria. The LA Times has hailed the Ahn sisters as “exacting and exciting musicians,” and New York Newsday nicknamed them “Classical revolutionaries,” because of their ever-evolving vision of being 21st century musicians and their wide-ranging collaborations with modern dance companies, film directors, rock bands, DJs, singers, and others.
Pat Metheny and other luminary composers such as Michael Nyman, Maurice Jarre, Kenji Bunch, Mark Baechle, Mark O’Connor, DJ Spooky, Chiel Meijering have written music for them. In 2011 President Obama invited 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.
The Trio has released nine critically acclaimed albums on EMI Classics, Sony, and Warner. The Ahn Trio’s album Lullaby for My Favorite Insomniac released by Sony, was No. 8 in the Billboard Charts for 26 weeks. The group’s Dvorak, Suk, and Shostakovich album on EMI won Germany’s prestigious ECHO Award.
Experience something out of the ordinary this Saturday. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to hear Ahn Trio’s cutting-edge musical performance in the intimate setting of Rizzoli’s beautiful salon . . . while sipping prosecco.
