Constantine Finehouse

Constantine Finehouse, piano

Constantine Finehouse has performed extensively in the US and abroad, including in Salzburg, Trieste, London, St. Petersburg, and Odessa. Recordings include his album with cellist Sebastian Baverstäm featuring music by Brahms and Boston composer Tony Schemmer. His 2009 solo release, "Backwards Glance," interweaves works by Brahms and Richard Beaudoin. “The Bolcom Project”, made in collaboration with his American Double partner, violinist Philip Ficsor, included an Albany Records two-CD album and a national tour with concerts in Boston, New York, Denver, Santa Barbara, Spokane, and at Yale University. Fanfare (magazine) praised the recording as “indispensable to any serious collector with an interest in later 20th-century duo repertoire for violin and piano.” Although recorded in 2014, Finehouse's recordings for Naxos Records' three-CD album of Bolcom’s piano solo works was released late in 2017, followed in 2018 by the premiere of William Bolcom's Horn Trio with Ficsor and Steven Gross, a work commissioned by the three, and a new album release, Between the Notes, with violinist, Daniel Kurganov, for Spice Classics. During the recent seasons Finehouse has performed at the Mozarteum (Salzburg), Miaskovsky Hall (Moscow Conservatory), Merkin Recital Hall, Weill Recital Hall (Carnegie Hall), and at Jordan Hall (Boston), as well as at Harvard, Yale, and Emory universities, and St. Vincent's and Elmira colleges, among others. With degrees from Juilliard and Yale, Finehouse teaches at New England Conservatory, and serves as Visiting Artist/Faculty at Westmont College, CA.
