David Finckel & Wu Han
Sunday, October 14 @ 3:30 pm
David Finckel and Wu Han “explode on the stage, exuding not only glamour and theatrical flair but also superb musical insight. The audience’s thrill is twofold” (The Washington Post).
The artists present a program they have selected to illuminate the theme of German Mastery. From Beethoven’s incredibly lyrical Opus 69, composed at the height of the Classical period, to Brahms’s soulful second sonata, whose beloved fugue pays homage to Bach, the master of counterpoint, the program traverses the German tradition of consummate craftsmanship in artistry. Concluding with Mendelssohn’s exhilarating Opus 58, which epitomizes the era of German Romanticism, this thrilling program is a tour de force through some of the most revered treasures of the cello-piano duo literature.
Beethoven — Sonata in A Major for Cello and Piano, Op. 69
Brahms — Sonata No. 1 in E minor for Cello and Piano, Op. 38
Mendelssohn — Sonata No. 2 in D Major for Cello and Piano, Op. 58
