During the 2020-2021 Season, Schubert Club Featured Artists David Finckel and Wu Han will perform a series of six concerts focusing on the chamber music of Franz Schubert, written at various stages of his all-too-short life of 31 years. In keeping with David Finckel and Wu Han’s commitment to succeeding generations of chamber musicians, all of their programs will feature amazing and talented chamber music friends with whom they have played at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Music @ Menlo, and other venues around the world.
“[Finckel and Han] generously share their joy of making music with every audience they perform for, and the knowledge and research they put into programming concerts makes every performance a revelation.” Barry Kempton, Executive and Artistic Director
“Franz Schubert, during his brief 31-year life, lived very much in a world of his own. Being in the music capital of the world, Vienna, did not connect him professionally to that city’s music industry. Instead, his fame spread slowly, for some seventy years after his death, through word-of-mouth, discovered masterpieces, and the advocacy of great composers who recognized his genius. We are thrilled to create, for the Schubert Club, an immersion into this beloved composer’s most intimate world, through his essential chamber music paired with his incomparable songs, and we eagerly await the arrival in St. Paul of an extraordinary cast of performers and educators who will bring this dream to vivid life.” – Wu Han and David Finckel
