Don’t Miss: "Aftermath: 1945,” Aug. 4-5

The recession hasn’t been easy on Silicon Valley start-ups but this one seems to be gathering steam as it enters its eighth season. Cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han are joined by several of their Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center colleagues to play thematic programs including "Aftermath: 1945.” This includes Richard Strauss' Metamorphosen, his powerful response to the bombing of Dresden, Shostakovich's String Quartet No 8 in C minor, and Britten's The Holy Sonnets of John Donne.
