Violinist Philip Setzer, cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han make as fine a piano trio as the world knows. Given their résumés, this is no surprise: Mr. Finckel spent more than thirty years with the famed Emerson String Quartet, Mr. Setzer is a founding member of the Emerson, and Wu Han has an outstanding career as an orchestral soloist and chamber player. Together, these three bring decades of experience to their exploration of the piano trio repertory and have become the standard bearer for this instrumental ensemble. Two members of this trio, David Finckel and Wu Han, are artistic directors of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, as well as founders and artistic directors of Music@Menlo (in Silicon Valley) and of Chamber Music Today, an annual festival held in Seoul, Korea. Violinist Philip Seltzer has appeared as soloist with the Cleveland Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra and many others. He has also participated in the Marlboro Music Festival. In 1976, he won a bronze medal at the Queen Elisabeth International Competition in Brussels.
