The Ahn Trio eloquently captures the subtlety and passion of two innovative composers: Maurice Ravel and Heitor Villa-Lobos. The three sisters of the Ahn trio, Angella, violin; Lucia, piano; and Maria, cello, each possess a highly distinctive style, yet as a trio they are a powerful musical ensemble.

Villa-Lobos, Heitor : Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano no 1 in C minor, W 42

Ravel, Maurice : Trio for Piano, Violin and Cello in A minor

 

Reviews

"The Ahn Trio's playing, for this old hand at Romantic music, is breathtaking...this is one of Ravel's best, and never better played."
