The directors of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, husband-and-wife duo David Finckel (cello) and Wu Han (piano), bring with them Arnaud Sussman (violin) and Paul Neuberger (viola) to present a program for Duke Performances' virtual season. The evening begins with Beethoven's first cello sonata, low in range and quietly contemplative. The program closes with all four instrumentalists playing one of the greatest piano quartets, Brahms' op. 25, wide in range and outright unconventional. Known for its "gypsy style" finale, the work will end the evening frantic and frenzied - with a finishing movement verging on magical.
