Cal Performances favorites David Finckel and Wu Han return to Berkeley with a ravishing program curated with their signature thoughtfulness and flair. As co-directors of both the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and Music@Menlo, “these two powerhouses have, over a period of decades, had an enormous, worldwide impact on chamber music—old and new—and have actually helped shape how people think about it in the 21st century” (The Berkshire Eagle). They grace Hertz Hall with their revelatory ensemble playing, honed over years of sold-out tours and acclaimed recordings. The program includes Shostakovich’s athletic D minor sonata, Brahms’ passionate Sonata No. 2 in F major, and a recently commissioned work by Pierre Jalbert that is vivid with instrumental color and rhythmic interplay.
