Beethoven’s works are milestones of the cello repertoire. Esteemed Co-Artistic Directors of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center Wu Han and David Finckel, praised for the boldness, imagination, and collaborative intimacy of their performances, return to the Harris to join forces for this concert. They stated, “To close CMS’ 2013-2014 residency, we offer a performance of the complete Beethoven Cello sonatas. Performing the entire cycle in a single evening provides a journey from Beethoven’s fiery youth, through his heroic middle period, to the moving and momentous final sonatas of his late career. We are thrilled to celebrate with the Harris as they continue their journey and look forward to celebrating with them all season long!”
