David Finckel, Wu Han & Philip Setzer

Thursday, October 1, 2015, 7:30pm & Friday, October 2, 2015, 10:30am
Ordway Concert Hall

In recent seasons, David Finckel and Wu Han have appeared frequently with violinist Philip Setzer–David Finckel’s former colleague in the legendary Emerson String Quartet for more than three decades–in performances of the piano trio literature. The trio has been met with critical acclaim worldwide. Of their recent performance of the Beethoven Triple Concerto with the Utah Symphony, Edward Reichel wrote “It used to be the Beaux Arts Trio that other piano trios had to look up to and attempt to emulate. Now it’s the Han-Setzer-Finckel triumvirate that is the standard bearer.

Joshua Bell, violin & Sam Haywood, piano

Sunday, November 1, 2015, 3pm
Ordway Music Theater

Joshua Bell is at home as a soloist, chamber musician, recording artist, and orchestra leader and is one of the most celebrated violinists of his era. With repertoire and performances ranging from Bach, to jazz standards, to world music, his restless curiosity, passion, and multifaceted musical interests have earned him the rare title of “classical music superstar.” Bell has spent time previously in the Twin Cities area as an Artistic Partner with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, and The Schubert Club is delighted to welcome him back to the Ordway stage again for his first recital here since 2008.

“Mr. Bell doesn’t stand in anyone’s shadow.” – New York Times

Ordway Concert Hall

In highly favorable profiles and reviews by The New Yorker and The New York Times,  Igor Levit is regarded as a versatile young artist with the expression and understanding of music unseen in many young players. While taking wisdom from older traditions, Levit, unafraid to take risks, also mixes his own alluring color and style into his performances. Alex Ross places Levit as one of “the most promising pianists of his generation,” and Anthony Tommasini of The New York Times writes about the “mature, commanding and richly detailed playing of this artist.” The Schubert Club is proud to introduce Levit as he makes his International Artist Series debut in the Ordway’s new Concert Hall.

Ordway Concert Hall

Michael Collins’ dazzling virtuosity and sensitive musicianship have earned him recognition as one of today’s most distinguished artists and a leading exponent of his instrument. BBC Music Magazine claims that“no clarinettist around today is capable of floating a purer, smoother, more beautifully contoured melodic line than Michael Collins.” In great demand as a chamber musician and a Wigmore Hall Resident Artist, Michael Collins will perform with the young Irish pianist, Michael McHale. McHale has developed an international career as a solo recitalist, concert pianist, and chamber musician, and, according to Der Tagesspiegel is “a magician who glides across the keys.”

Bryn Terfel, baritone & Natalia Katyukova, piano

Wednesday, April 20, 2016, 7:30pm
Ordway Music Theater

The Welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel is one of the most sought after international voices. He first became well known for his portrayal of Figaro and Falstaff, but in recent years, has been acclaimed for his performances of the Wagner roles of Wotan, Hans Sachs and Der Fliegende Höllander. His recordings have earned him two Grammy Awards and four Classical Brit Awards. Mr. Terfel ranks among the very favorite recitalists of Schubert Club audiences and returns after an absence of 8 years.

“He can roar – with pain, with pleasure, with fierce indignation, filling the hall with full, strong tone. But he can also coo and purr at an extreme pianissimo, making a sound that stays audible only because there is so much in it to feel, as well as to hear.” -The New York Times
