Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Born in Seoul, Korea, and educated at Juilliard in New York City, the members of Ahn Trio - sisters Maria (cello), Lucia (piano) and Angella (violin) - are redefining the art and architecture of chamber music, breathing new life into the standard piano trio literature with commisioned works from visionary composers like Kenji Bunch, Maurice Jarre, and Michael Nyman. The trio's latest CD 'Lullaby For My Favorite Insomniac' is a showcase for this vibrant, original music.
On 2008's LULLABY FOR MY FAVORITE INSOMNIAC, the New York City-based chamber ensemble Ahn Trio offers up an adventurous yet accessible set of classical-pop crossover tracks. Consisting of Korean-American twins Lucia and Maria Ahn (piano and cello, respectively) and their sister Angella (violin), the group performs an eclectic array of songs that includes a spare take on "My Funny Valentine" and a moody version of David Bowie and Pat Metheny's "This Is Not America."
