Esteemed for their “vitality, incisive attention to detail and spontaneity” (Chicago Tribune), rising stars of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center join forces with coartistic director and pianist Wu Han, “who brings seemingly boundless technique and appealing zestfulness to her playing” (Chicago Sun-Times).
An inspired educator, composer, and performer, Alexander Tanayev (1856-1915) was mentored by Tchaikovsky and taught both Prokofiev and Rachmaninov. Certain to be given a powerhouse performance, Taneyev’s epic Piano Quintet promises to be a memorable Season 28 highlight.
