One of the best sounding chamber music recordings that we've ever heard!
Hailed for its soul-stirring, captivating performances of supreme artistry, The Jung Trio, "a spectacular group with wonderful musicality at their fingertips," (Ezra Laderman, composer and Dean Emeritus of Yale University) has established its status as one of the most notable rising young ensembles of today. The group is comprised of sisters Jennie, Ellen, and Julie Jung, who each contributes her own singular warmth and impassioned sensibility to the collaborative force. The trio has appeared in concerts all across North America as well as around the world. In April, 2007, they swept the auditions held in the City of Beverly Hills. As a result, the Trio was presented on Los Angeles County Museum of Art's "Sundays Live," the Beverly Hills "Music in the Mansion," and the Trinity Lutheran, Manhattan Beach "Previews" concert series. The Jung Trio won the Grand Prize at the 2002 Yellow Springs Chamber Music Competition and the Bronze Medal at the 2002 Fischoff Competition.
The sisters were born and raised in Toronto, where they received their early music training as scholarship students in the Young Artist Performance Academy at the Royal Conservatory of Music. Initial successes include top prizes at the Canadian Music Competition, Kiwanis Music Festival, and the CIBC National Music Festival.
