Chamber Music & Orchestra
David Finckel, cello
Wu Han, piano
March 8, 2015
The husband and wife duo of cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han presents a program of gripping 20th-century Russian chamber works—music that is stately and lyrical. Scriabin's masterful Five Préludes showcase the genius and innovation of one of the most influential modern composers. In Han's capable hands, the nuance and texture of Scriabin's work is coaxed out with skill and precision.
