LERA AUERBACHSonata for Cello and Piano, Op. 69
MENDELSSOHNSong Without Words
GRIEGSonata for Cello and Piano in A minor, Op. 36

Beloved by chamber music audiences on both coasts as co-artistic directors of New York's Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and California's Music@Menlo, pianist Wu Han and cellist David Finckel return with a characteristically insightful program of familiar and lesser-known works that showcase their extraordinary talents. Beethoven's variations on an aria from a Handel oratorio, and Mendelssohn's Song Without Words are matched with Grieg's evocative A-minor Sonata and two works written for the duo by American composer Bruce Adolphe and Russian composer Lera Auerbach.
