David Finckel Presents Music, Musicians, and the Industry
For his second year of special activities at Stony Brook, David Finckel, former cellist of the Emerson String Quartet, shares his vast experience in a lecture series that approaches becoming a professional musician from a variety of directions. Beginning with an in-depth reveal of his work as an arts administrator, the lecture topics move ecletically to include artistic analysis and the life stories of legendary performers, interpretive techniques available to all musicians, the latest in music and the media, and a musical journey through the life of Beethoven.
Lecture 1: Artistic Directing in the 21st Century
Monday, October 13, Room 2322
David Finckel and Wu Han were named Musical America’s Musicians of the Year for 2012 in recognition not only of their performance skills but also for their accomplishments as major presenters of chamber music, in traditional series and festival formats. In this talk, the duo – “America’s power couple of chamber music” (The Wall Street Journal) - will describe what they do, and to what they attribute their success. Included will be: how to initiate projects; fund raising; programming; working with artists; getting to know audiences; concert production; and education.
