Finckel retired this past season from the Emerson String Quartet after a career of over three decades. Setzer remains a current and founding member of the Emerson String Quartet. Finckel and Han were selected as Musical America’s 2012 Musicians of the Year.

In recent years, the three have been regular collaborators, on stage and in the recording studio, performing piano-trio repertory. The happy union of David Finckel, Wu Han and Philip Setzer brings concerts that are lyrical, virtuosic and unforgettable.
