Cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han traveled to four Asian cities last month, taking six flights and performing the same number of concerts.

One of these was staged at the Shanghai Concert Hall on Dec 14, when together with their colleagues from the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in New York, Finckel and Wu played works by Beethoven, Schoenfield and Schubert.

Finckel said, "There is no other organization like this in the world.
