This New York City-based society has received international acclaim as the world’s most exciting new venue for chamber music. The group touring at BYU is comprised of Wu Han, piano; Arnaud Sussmann, violin; Mark Holloway, viola; and Andreas Brantelid, cello.
Music selections will include Beethoven’s String Trio in D major, Op. 9, No. 2; Jalbert’s Piano Trio; and Brahms’ Piano Quartet in G minor, Op. 25.
The New York Times said: “The pianist Wu Han and the cellist David Finckel have proved adept at this so far as music directors of the Chamber Music Society.” The Lawrence Journal-World also reported that “The Chamber Music Society reminded us of why the ensemble is considered a jewel in this nation’s musical crown.”
The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center (CMS) is one of 12 constituents of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the largest performing arts complex in the world, located on 16.3 acres in the Upper West Side district of New York City. Along with other groups such as the New York Philharmonic, New York City Ballet, Lincoln Center Theater and The Metropolitan Opera, the Chamber Music Society has its home at Lincoln Center in Alice Tully Hall. Through its performance, education and recording and broadcast activities, the CMS draws more people to chamber music than any other organization of its kind.
