Ahn Trio returns to Highline with special guests, Tata Bojs of Prague
Technically superb and blazing with talent, the Ahn Trio plays adventurous repertoires with a style that the Toronto Star says has "all the youthful fire, passion, and commitment one could possibly want." These three sisters were born in Korea and studied together at Juilliard. Since then they have been carving a path that has helped them expand the very definition of the term "chamber music." Although they have long mastered the classical repertoire, they now play pieces written for them exclusively by finest contemporary composers and the group is known for their unique collaborations with Modern Dance Companies, DJ's, rockbands, installation artists, painters, Pop singers, jazz artists and more. They have appeared in Vogue, GQ, Time and were named three of the 50 most beautiful people by the People Magazine and their albums have won the Echo Award, Germany's Grammy's. They return to one of their favorite venues in NYC to showcase music from their newest album on Sony, "Lullaby For My Favorite Insomniac" and from their collaborative album with the award winning Czech rockband, Tata bojs of Prague, "Smetana." Together, they create an unusual sextet of two trios, a modern Classical trio blending with the Rock trio. The hugely successful Tata-Ahn Tour last fall in the Czech Republic got rave reviews and they will return for the second tour with them this year. The program also includes a new work by legendary jazz guitarist Pat Metheny, "Yu-Ryung" written for the Ahns. Their passion to further explore the new, cutting-edge projects-it is precisely this vitality and commitment to innovation that has the Ahn Trio continually drawing new audiences to classical music.
