PRESS ACCLAIM
 

Press Excerpts

"America's power couple of chamber music."
--The Wall St. Journal

“Mr. Finckel and Wu Han gave eloquent and deeply committed performances.
He played with a deep and burnished tone and she with a sparkling virtuosity.”
--The New York Times

“When a pair of genuine artists explodes on the stage, exuding not only glamour and theatrical flair but also superb musical insight, the audience's thrill is twofold.”
--Chicago Sun-Times

“Inspired….Finckel makes his instrument sing with a natural eloquence, at once muscular and supple. Han, for her part, dispatches musical material without flinching and without losing emotional mooring.”
--Los Angeles Times

"It was a performance in which lyricism and virtuosity shared equal roles, but what made it particularly memorable was the degree of exquisitely intimate ensemble achieved by Finckel and pianist Wu Han, with spontaneity, vigor and seamless melody."
--The Washington Post

“CMS artistic directors David Finckel and Wu Han brought their effortless technique to Britten’s Cello Sonata – at times pointed, enigmatic and whimsical, at others heartfelt and passionate, and always played with the joy and commitment of true artists.”
--The Strad

“Mr. Finckel and Wu Han gave eloquent and deeply committed performances.
He played with a deep and burnished tone and she with a sparkling virtuosity.
Best of all was how keenly they listened to each other.”
--The New York Times

“When a pair of genuine artists explodes on the stage, exuding not only glamour and theatrical flair but also superb musical insight, the audience's thrill is twofold.”
--Chicago Sun-Times

“This chamber music duo is an inspired pairing, conversant with the material and each other's motions. Finckel makes his instrument sing with a natural eloquence, at once muscular and supple. Han, for her part, dispatches musical material without flinching and without losing emotional mooring.”
--Los Angeles Times

“Finckel and Han evince a special communion in music
and their contrasting qualities are complementary.”
--Billboard

"It was a performance in which lyricism and virtuosity shared equal roles, but what made it particularly memorable was the degree of exquisitely intimate ensemble achieved by Finckel and pianist Wu Han, with spontaneity, vigor and seamless melody."
--The Washington Post

"Wu Han, whose hands and technique are electronic in quickness,
gave a most artful and varied performance, crisp and fascinating in coloration.
Her playing is fully engaging and enlivening."
--San Francisco Chronicle

“CMS artistic directors David Finckel and Wu Han brought their effortless technique to Britten’s Cello Sonata – at times pointed, enigmatic and whimsical, at others heartfelt and passionate, and always played with the joy and commitment of true artists.”
--The Strad

“Finckel, the cellist of the Emerson String Quartet, is a superb player with his own instantly recognizable style. His technique is impeccable, his tone warm, rich, variable, and pure; his playing has great warmth and expressiveness coupled with a noble, aristocratic restraint.”
--Strings
