About the Musicians
Bolcom Project, made in collaboration with his American Double partner,
violinist Philip Ficsor, included a double CD and a national tour.
Fanfare praised the recording as “indispensable to any serious
collector with an interest in later 20th century duo repertoire for
violin and piano.” As part of American Double, Finehouse also toured
Hungary, performing sonatas by Brahms, Bolcom and Ravel. More recently,
he collaborated with violinist Olga Caceànova at Lausanne
Conservatoire, and with cellist Sebastian Bäverstam at Weill Recital
Hall (Carnegie Hall) and Merkin Recital Hall (Kauffman Center). With
Sebastian Bäverstam, he recently released a CD of works by Brahms and
Tony Schemmer. Finehouse is currently recording Bolcom’s complete
piano solo works for Naxos Records.
The 2011-2012 season brings recitals celebrating Liszt’s bicentennial. Finehouse has been awarded the Vladimir Horowitz Scholarship from Juilliard, a 2004 St. Botolph Club Foundation Grant, and 2006 Classics Abroad Project Award. He serves on the faculty of New England Conservatory Preparatory and Extension Divisions. In fall 2011 he assumed the position of Visiting Artist/Faculty at Westmont College, Santa Barbara.
