A very rare NYC pop-up concert by the in-demand Ahn Trio marks the end of the first year of the Rizzoli Music Aperitivo.  

Hailed as "exacting and exciting musicians" by the LA Times, the Ahn Trio is made up of three Juilliard-trained Korean-American sisters, pianist Lucia, violinist Angella, and cellist Maria. The Trio has released 9 critically acclaimed albums on EMI Classics, Sony, and Warner. Their ever-evolving vision of being a 21st century musician, and wideranging collaborations with modern dance companies including a B-boy dance company, film directors, rock bands, DJs, singers, and more led to the nickname "Classical revolutionaries" given to them by New York Newsday. Pat Methenyand other luminary composers such as Michael NymanMaurice JarreKenji BunchMark BaechleMark O'ConnorDJ SpookyChiel Meijering - among others - 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. Ahn Trio's album Lullaby for My Favorite Insomniac released by Sony, was No. 8 in the Billboard Charts for 26 weeks. Their Dvorak, Suk, and Shostakovich album on EMI won Germany's prestigious ECHO Award. People Magazine selected the sisters three of 50 Most Beautiful People in 2003. Their unique approach to music has taken the sisters to Buenos Aires' Teatro Colon, Vienna's Musikverein, New York's Lincoln Center, Leipzig's Gewandhaus, Beijing's Concert Hall, Istanbul's Aya Irini in Topkapi Palace, to over 30 countries and every state in America. Ahn Trio released their latest album BLUE in 2017 showcasing their wide-ranging interests and influences. The programme for the concert will feature music from BLUE and other releases from the Ahn Trio's wide-ranging discography.
