Around Dvořák
A festival featuring three performances organized by David Finckel and Wu Han, with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center
“Experience a week devoted to one of history’s most beloved composers, Antonín Dvořák. The famed creator of the New World Symphony was also the composer of a great number of definitive, masterful chamber works that constitute a significant portion of our standard repertoire. In looking and listening “around” Dvořák, we’ll encounter those who influenced him (Johannes Brahms and Bedřich Smetana) as well as those inspired by his mastery (Josef Suk and Harry Burleigh). And we’ll hear their music surrounded by an assemblage of Dvořák’s most heartfelt romantic work, both classics and novelties.” – David Finckel and Wu Han, Beyer Artists-in-Residence
Around Dvořák III

This program frames Dvořák with his ancestor and descendent: Bedřich Smetana, the acknowl- edged “father” of Czech music, and Harry Burleigh, the student at New York’s National Conservatory who taught Dvořák African Amer- ican spirituals which informed some of his works. For the vocal set of Dvořák’s Gypsy Songs, Wu Han will be joined by a mezzo- soprano from Palm Beach Opera.

Cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han are co- directors of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and among the most influential classical musicians in the world. Joining them is a hand- picked selection of musicians who are among the world’s most sought-after solo and chamber artists.
