"It's hard to overstate the players' sense of fun, which burst through in every bar.... The eight musicians mined every minute for maximum propulsion and drama."

The Strad


"While many orchestras, concert series and opera companies across the U.S.—from the New York City Opera to the Syracuse Symphony—have reduced their presence or shut down entirely, the venerable Chamber Music Society has been expanding its activities at a dizzying pace. Since taking over the organization in 2004, the husband and wife team of cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han has forged it into an unstoppable entity—an exploding star in the musical firmament. Its directors seem incapable of anything but success."
Wall Street Journal


"Though every musician on the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center roster is superb, the sum of the parts is even greater...a potent evening of first class music making."

The Strad


"An unmissable event.  A rare opportunity to hear an unusual and absorbing program. It was performed with all the vitality, incisive attention to detail and spontaneity one has come to associate with the Chamber Music Society brand."

--Chicago Tribune


"The evidence seemed clear: what the cellist David Finckel and the pianist Wu Han, the society’s artistic directors since 2004, have achieved with their hands-on approach to blending standard, unusual and new repertory, played by a mix of familiar and emerging performers, has connected with a large, enthusiastic constituency."
--The New York Times


“The great joy of the society’s concerts is the interaction of up-and-coming musicians with established ones.”
--The New York Times


“An intense, compelling performance.”
--The New York Times


“A New York powerhouse.”
--Chicago Magazine


“This program provided yet more evidence of how much the Society has been reinvigorated and strengthened under the nine-year artistic leadership of the indefatigable husband-and-wife team, cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han.”
--Chicago Sun Times


“Intensely committed performances.”
--The New York Times


“The interpretations, like the scores, were tender and monumental, steamy and chiseled in stone.”
--New York Magazine
