--Wall Street Journal

“Mr. Finckel and Wu Han gave eloquent and deeply committed performances.
He played with a deep and burnished tone and she with a sparkling virtuosity.”
--The New York Times

“When a pair of genuine artists explodes on the stage, exuding not only glamour and theatrical flair but also superb musical insight, the audience's thrill is twofold.”
--Chicago Sun-Times

“Inspired….Finckel makes his instrument sing with a natural eloquence, at once muscular and supple. Han, for her part, dispatches musical material without flinching and without losing emotional mooring.”
--Los Angeles Times

"It was a performance in which lyricism and virtuosity shared equal roles, but what made it particularly memorable was the degree of exquisitely intimate ensemble achieved by Finckel and pianist Wu Han, with spontaneity, vigor and seamless melody."
--Washington Post

--The Strad

“Finckel, the cellist of the Emerson String Quartet, is a superb player with his own instantly recognizable style. His technique is impeccable, his tone warm, rich, variable, and pure; his playing has great warmth and expressiveness coupled with a noble, aristocratic restraint.”
--Strings
