BEETHOVEN The Five Sonatas for Cello and Piano

Cal Performances favorites and chamber music superstars, cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han present a marathon program of the complete Beethoven sonatas for cello and piano—monumental works in the repertoire but also significant artistic touchstones for these consummate artists, who have been playing them together for more than 25 years. The husband-and-wife duo has captivated critics across the globe through committed performances of Beethoven’s deeply conversational works: “There was a sense of absolute certainty in the way cellist and pianist completed each other’s sentences, yet their long familiarity with each other’s musical responses did not rob their performances of freshness, spontaneity or directness” (Chicago Tribune).
