New York City
The Chamber Music Society’s artistic directors — Cellist David Finckel and Pianist Wu Han — make their Lincoln Center recital debut. The celebrated duo have programmed an all-Russian concert featuring Prokofiev’s Sonata in C major for Cello and Piano, Op. 119, Lera Auerbach’s Sonata No. 1 for Cello and Piano, and Rachmaninoff’s Sonata in G minor, Op. 19.
David Finckel and Wu Han have one of the most accomplished careers in the field of classical music today. The talent, energy, imagination and dedication they bring to their multi-faceted endeavors as concert performers, recording artists, educators, artistic administrators and cultural entrepreneurs, go unmatched. They frequently appear in the most prestigious concert series and festivals worldwide in their capacities as recital and concert soloists, as a duo, and in David’s case, as cellist of the Grammy Award-winning Emerson String Quartet. Together, they have a unique ability to envision and realize innovative projects, be it in the recording arena with ArtistLed, on the world’s great concert states, or as artistic administrators and cultural entrepreneurs. In recent years, Finckel and Wu Han have become widely recognized for their initiatives in expanding audiences for classical music, and for guiding the careers of countless young musicians. In addition to their position as Artistic Directors of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, they are also the founders and Artistic Directors of Music@Menlo, their innovative chamber music festival in Silicon Valley that has garnered international acclaim since its inception in 2003.
