CMS Performs at the Stradivari Festival

This October CMS Artists and Patrons toured Northern Italy, experiencing the vibrant culture and delicious flavors of the region. The trip included a hugely successful performance at the Stradivari Festival in Cremona.

CMS Artists Paul Huang, violin; David Finckel, cello; and Paul Neubauer, viola, perform at San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore in Milan.

From the Press

"If it is true that chamber music demands, perhaps more than any other genre, particular diligence in execution, last night the audiences of the Arvedi Auditorium of the Violin Museum witnessed a real mastery of rigor and refinement."

"The audience responds with long applause and enthusiastic shouts."

"Simply impeccable."

Violinist Paul Huang, pianist Wu Han, and cellist David Finckel perform Beethoven's Trio No. 1.
