The internationally acclaimed ensemble Ahn Trio will makes its SONY BMG Masterworks debut on April 1 with Lullaby for my Favorite Insomniac. Sisters Angella (violin), Lucia (piano) and Maria (cello) continue their commitment to modernize and reinvent the standard piano-trio structure on this, their fourth album.

The new album is a fusion of established works with material specially commissioned for the trio. Violinist Angella Ahn explains, "I don't think there is anything really like playing music that was written for you, working with the composers and with each other, and introducing this music to our audiences. It's really fun." Included on the record are several tracks that build on the music of fellow Julliard-graduate and award-winning composer Kenji Bunch, a variety of commissioned works by Michael Nyman and Astor Piazzolla and innovative arrangements of music by Pat Metheny and David Bowie. The trio is joined vocally on the record by singer-songwriter Susie Suh. As a special addition, four bonus tracks are included with the new album, which features remixes by Tao of Sound, DJ Spooky, Superdrive and Ra.D. Korean-born and Julliard-trained, the Ahn Trio was first brought to national attention when the sisters appeared on the cover of Time magazine in 1987 in the feature story on Asian-American whiz kids. The trio went on to appear in such publications as Vogue and GQ. Esteemed composers, including Maurice Jarre and Nikolai Kapustin, have looked to them for commissions while music journalists have praised their creations. The Washington Post declares that, "Their technique was impressive, and they balance unanimity and individuality in a spirit that is at the heart of chamber music," while The Los Angeles Times asserts that, "A dominant musical gene has obviously left its imprint on the sisters Ahn..."A nation-wide tour in support of the record is now confirmed (see reverse for full details).
