David Finckel and Wu Han are among the most esteemed and influential classical musicians in the world today. They are recipients of Musical America’s Musicians of the Year award, one of the highest honors granted by the music industry. The energy, imagination, and integrity they bring to their multifaceted endeavors as concert performers, artistic directors, recording artists, educators, and cultural entrepreneurs go unmatched.
In high demand among audiences worldwide, David Finckel and Wu Han appear annually at the most prestigious concert venues across the United States, Mexico, Canada, the Far East, and Europe, their performances garnering superlatives from the press, public, and presenters alike. Highlights of their 2018–19 season include international and domestic tours as a duo and collaborations with a stellar lineup of artists and ensembles. They continue to perform with The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center (CMS) in New York and on tour; reunite with violinist Daniel Hope and violist Paul Neubauer for a U.S. tour reaching seven cities; and embark on a series of piano trio performances in Canada and the United States with violinist Philip Setzer. As the winter unfolds, they join CMS artists on tour to the Far East with appearances in Taipei and Hsinchu, Taiwan, and in Shanghai, China. The duo will also be the subject of two television features to be broadcast on PBS stations across the country.
Now in their third term as Artistic Directors of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, David Finckel and Wu Han hold the longest tenure as directors since CMS founder Charles Wadsworth. They are the founders and Artistic Directors of Music@Menlo, the San Francisco Bay Area’s premier summer chamber music festival and institute, approaching its seventeenth season in 2019. Additionally, David Finckel and Wu Han are founding Artistic Directors of Chamber Music Today, an annual festival held in Seoul, South Korea, which marks its eighth season in 2018. Beginning this fall, Wu Han will serve as Artistic Advisor of Wolf Trap’s Chamber Music at the Barns for two seasons, and in the spring, the duo inaugurates an immersive, week-long festival in Palm Beach that explores German and Austrian chamber music through an array of performances and interactive events.
