ArtistLed, the independent record label founded by David Finckel and Wu Han, is proud to announce the release of its twelfth album, For David and Wu Han. The recording features four contemporary works for cello and piano by composers Bruce Adolphe, Lera Auerbach, Pierre Jalbert and George Tsontakis. The works were all commissioned for and premiered by Finckel and Wu Han.
In keeping with the artists’ entrepreneurial spirit and the label’s innovative approach, ArtistLed has produced a unique multimedia microsite, fordavidandwuhan.com, devoted exclusively to the recording. Offering an intimate look into the creative process of the new release, the site features video interviews with all four composers represented on the album, as well as commentary by David Finckel, Wu Han, and ArtistLed’s Grammy-Award winning engineer, Da-Hong Seetoo.
In David Finckel’s words, “For ArtistLed’s twelfth recording, we decided to take a different course which is, literally, new repertoire. We thought it was time that we make a contribution back to the wonderful pool of pieces for cello and piano. We are very fortunate to have found four composers we admire enormously, and they have written marvelous works.”
