Constantine Finehouse was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, and attended New England Conservatory, Juilliard and Yale. His principal teachers included Fredrik Wanger, Natalia Harlap, Herbert Stessin, Jerome Lowenthal, Boris Berman and Bruce Brubaker. Praised by Rhein Main Presse Allgemeine Zeitung for his "interpretations of depth and maturity,” Finehouse has performed extensively in the US (including in California, Colorado, Connecticut, the Carolinas, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Rhode Island, Texas, Virginia and Washington) and abroad (including in Lausanne, London, Odessa, St. Petersburg, and Trieste). His newest album with cellist Sebastian Bäverstam features the universally-admired Brahms Sonata, Opus 38 for piano and cello, as well as several new works in the High Romantic style by Boston composer, Tony Schemmer. His 2009 solo recording, Backwards Glance [Spice Rack Records 101-01], interweaves music of Johannes Brahms and Richard Beaudoin. The Bolcom Project, made in collaboration with his American Double partner, violinist Philip Ficsor, included a double-CD [Albany Troy 959/960] 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 the Lausanne Conservatoire and on a 5-concert tour of North Carolina and Georgia, as well as with cellist Sebastian Bäverstam at Weill Recital Hall (Carnegie Hall), Merkin Recital Hall (Kauffman Center) and Mozarteum (Salzburg). In partnership with pianists Ursula Oppens and Christopher Taylor, Finehouse is currently recording Bolcom’s complete piano solo works for Naxos Records. The 2015-16 season brings recitals celebrating William Bolcom's 75th birthday, in which Finehouse will be featured as a soloist as well as in chamber music performances across the United States. Of special note was a highly-praised solo recital at New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall in March, 2014. Finehouse has been awarded the Vladimir Horowitz Scholarship from Juilliard, a 2004 St. Botolph Club Foundation Grant and a 2006 Classics Abroad Project Award. He serves on the faculty of New England Conservatory Preparatory and Extension Divisions in Boston and as Visiting Artist/Faculty at Westmont College, Santa Barbara.
