Sunday, March 4, I was privileged to be in the audience for a wonderful concert by the Lincoln Center Chamber Society’s Artistic Directors, David Finkel on the cello and Wu Han, piano. It was another outstanding, moving, performance from the Music in The Park Series, in Saint Paul. It was easy to understand why these two rank among the most esteemed and influential classical musicians in the world. Their talent and synchronicity are outstanding with a nuanced, varied program featuring pieces by Beethoven, Adolphe, Auerbach, Mendelssohn, and Grieg.
The concerts for Music In The Park are held in a lovely venue with outstanding acoustics, Saint Anthony Park United Church of Christ. The series is more than thirty-five years old and has introduced Twin Cities residents to a wide variety of classical musicians in an intimate setting.
During the intermission, Andy and Linda Boss, long-time park residents and strong supporters of the series were honored.
