David Finckel, cello, and Wu Han, piano, are leaders in classical music today, as performers, entrepreneurs, and as co-artistic directors of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. In this recital, they present the gripping story of Russian music of the 20th century. Culminating in Rachmaninov’s ultra-romantic Sonata for Cello and Piano in g minor, Op. 19, the program showcases the styles of four of Russia’s most beloved composers: Prokofiev’s stately and lyrical Sonata in C major, Op. 119; the ground-breaking Sonata in d minor, Op. 40 by Shostakovich; and Alexander Scriabin’s sublime Five Preludes for solo piano, Op. 16.
