Setzer, Finckel, Wu Han
The Complete Beethoven Trios

Overview

Cellist David Finckel, violinist Philip Setzer, and pianist Wu Han make up one of the world’s finest piano trios. Finckel spent more than thirty years with the famed Emerson String Quartet, Setzer is a founding member of the Emerson, and Han has an outstanding career as an orchestral soloist and chamber player.

This landmark engagement begins where Beethoven begins, with his very first published work and follows Beethoven’s musical journey to his final trio, composed at the height of his creative power, giving the audience a complete picture of the composer’s evolution. A generous break between concerts provides patrons an opportunity to pause and savor the memory of the first three works over dinner.
