Boulanger

Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

The husband and wife team of pianist Wu Han and cellist David Finckel are adding high-profile administrative duties to their busy schedule this fall. This is their first official season as the artistic directors of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, in New York. We take you to their first concert to hear some offbeat pieces written by Gypsy fiddler George Boulanger. Violist Paul Neubauer and pianist Wu Han play Boulanger's Salon Music, along with a short piece called "The Canary," by an anonymous composer.
