The internationally celebrated Ahn Trio will bring energy and excitement to the stage performing Mark O’Connor’s Triple Concerto. Deeply rooted in Viennese tradition, Schubert’s last symphony, full of lyricism, is a masterwork that foreshadows the great symphonies by Bruckner and Mahler. Hummel was regarded as the equal of Mozart and Beethoven. His take on the popular Austrian folk tune “Ach Du Lieber Augustin” is a fine example of the Viennese tradition to entertain. The evocative "Air on the G String," from Bach's Orchestal Suite No. 3, earned its nickname from violinist Wilhemj's arrangement in which he played the entire melody on the G string of his violin.
Johann Sebastian Bach - "Air on the G String"
Johann Nepomuk Hummel - Eight Variations on “Du Lieber Augustin”
Mark O’Connor - Triple Concerto
Franz Schubert - Symphony No. 9, “The Great”
Hailed as "exacting and exciting musicians" by the LA Times, the three sisters of the Ahn Trio (Lucia on the piano, Angella on the violin, and Maria on the cello) have earned a distinguished reputation for embracing 21st century classical music with their unique style and innovative collaborations. In 2011, President Obama invited the Ahn Trio to perform at the White House for a State Dinner honoring South Korea. ● Ahn Trio's website
