Philip Setzer est l’un des fondateurs et membre du quatuor Emerson, et c’est également au sein de ce quatuor que David Finckel a joué durant une trentaine d’années. Wu Han, quant à elle, se produit tant comme soliste avec des orchestres que comme chambriste. David Finckel et Wu Han sont les directeurs artistiques de la Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center et ils ont été reçu, en 2012, le titre honorifique du Musical America’s Musicians of the Year. Ils se produisent fréquemment en duo sur les scènes les plus prestigieuses. Philip Setzer, lauréat de la Merriweather Post Competition et du Concours Reine Élisabeth de Belgique, partage ses activités entre l’enseignement et les concerts en soliste ou avec orchestre. Le trio Setzer-Finckel-Wu Han a donné, à travers le mode, l’intégrale des Trios avec piano de Beethoven. 4e fois au LMMC.

Violinist Philip Setzer, cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han make as fine a piano trio as the world knows. Given their résumés, this is no surprise: Finckel spent more than thirty years with the famed Emerson String Quartet, Setzer is a founding member of the Emerson, and Wu Han has an outstanding career as an orchestral soloist and chamber player. Together, these three bring decades of experience to their exploration of the piano trio repertory and have become the standard bearer for this instrumental ensemble. Two of this Trio, David Finckel and Wu Han, are artistic directors of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, as well as founders and artistic directors of [email protected] (in Silicon Valley) and of Chamber Music Today, an annual festival held in Seoul, Korea. Violinist Philip Seltzer has appeared as soloist with the Cleveland Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra and many others. He has also participated in the Marlboro Music Festival. In 1976, he won a bronze medal at the Queen Elisabeth International Competition in Brussels. 4th LMMC appearance.

      About Author

      Founded in 1892 by a group of women amateur musicians, the LMMC embarks on its 125th season of uninterrupted musical activity. Originally all concerts were given by active members with the occasional assistance of local professionals. In 1895 the Club brought to Montreal the Belgian violinist Eugène Ysaÿe, whose recital was such a success that the Ladies increasingly engaged international artists. Horowitz, Serkin, Rubinstein, Heifetz, Milstein, Stern, Rampal, Piatigorsky, Tortelier, Yo-Yo Ma, Lehmann, Ferrier, Souzay, the Budapest, Amadeus, Juilliard Quartets, the Beaux Arts Trio, are but a sampling of those who have performed and, in many cases, made their Montreal debuts at the Club. The long list of Canadian artists includes Saucier, Chamberland, Forrester, Alarie, Donalda, Simoneau, Gould, Turini, the Orford Quartet. The LMMC is a non-profit organization, managed by a volunteer committee. Admission is open to all on a subscription or single-ticket basis.
