Venue

Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

Violinist Philip Setzer of the Emerson Quartet joins cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han for this dynamic chamber music trio performance. Finckel, Han and Setzer rank among the most esteemed and influential classical musicians in the world today. These friends of Meany Center present a program of Beethoven, Mendelssohn and the heartbreaking lamentation, Shostakovich Trio No. 2, written in the midst of World War II.

The music unfolded like a spontaneous, heady conversation among three intimate friends.
