This live album of piano quartets was recorded in March 2015, a presentation of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and released a mere six weeks later. Recorded at Alice Tully Hall in New York, the working duo of cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han is joined by violinist Daniel Hope and violist Paul Neubauer in presenting some of the finest pieces written in the Romantic era by Brahms, Schumann and Mahler, all bold, lush and exquisite works.
This collaboration of four extraordinary musicians was born out of the incredible success at a 2012 Chamber Music Society (CMS) of Lincoln Center performance in New York that explored the influence of violinist Joseph Joachim. Revered by the composers of his day for his virtuosity and musical integrity, Joachim actually introduced Johannes Brahms to Robert and Clara Schumann. Three members of CMS, including Co-Artistic Directors David Finckel and Wu Han along with Paul Neubauer, join forces with SMF Associate Artistic Director Daniel Hope to present a powerful program of Romantic era masterworks, including arguably the greatest piano quartet in the chamber music repertoire. Perhaps the most prolific cultural institution promoting the growth of chamber music, CMS “has been expanding its activities at a dizzying pace. Since taking over the organization in 2004, the husband and wife team of cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han has forged it into an unstoppable entity–an exploding star in the musical firmament. Its directors seem incapable of anything but success” –The Wall Street Journal
