"America's power couple of chamber music" (Wall Street Journal) returns following their unforgettable Beethoven cycle last season. Among the most esteemed and influential classical musicians in the world today, David Finckel and Wu Han trace the genesis of the Romantic cello sonata from its birth to full flowering: from Schubert, whose work foreshadows the developments to come, through the unbridled emotion of both Brahms and Schumann, who took the Romantic era to its heights.
Program: Schubert: Sonata in A minor, (Arpeggione) • Brahms: Sonata in E minor, Op. 38 • Schumann: Adagio and Allegro for Cello and Piano, Op. 70 • Brahms: Sonata for Cello and Piano in F major, Op. 99
