About

Co-artistic director of the Chamber Music Society, cellist David Finckel was named Musical America’s 2012 Musician of the Year, one of the highest honors granted to musicians from the music industry in the US. He leads a multifaceted career as a concert performer, recording artist, educator, administrator, and cultural entrepreneur that places him in the ranks of today’s most influential classical musicians. He has been hailed as “one of the top ten, if not top five, cellists in the world today” (Nordwest Zeitung, Germany). As a chamber musician, he appears extensively with duo partner pianist Wu Han and in a piano trio alongside violinist Philip Setzer. David Finckel served as cellist of the nine-time Grammy Award-winning Emerson String Quartet for 34 seasons. In 1997 David Finckel and Wu Han launched ArtistLed, classical music’s first musician-directed and Internet-based recording company, whose 17-album catalogue has won widespread critical praise. Along with Wu Han, he is the founder and artistic director of Music@Menlo, Silicon Valley’s acclaimed chamber music festival and institute, artistic director for Chamber Music Today in Korea, and in 2013, inaugurated a chamber music workshop at Aspen Music Festival and School. Under the auspices of CMS, David Finckel and Wu Han lead the LG Chamber Music School. The first American student of Rostropovich, David Finckel serves on the faculty at The Juilliard School and Stony Brook University. Piano Quartets, a 2015 Deutsche Grammophon release recorded live at Alice Tully Hall, features David Finckel, Wu Han, Daniel Hope, and Paul Neubauer performing the piano quartets of Brahms, Schumann, and Mahler.
