The festival was founded in 2003 by cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han.[1] American Public Media says that "Music@Menlo has rapidly become one of the world's top-tier chamber music festivals due to the quality of performance and its goal to rejuvenate the classical music experience."[2] The festival divides its musicians into three categories which are determined by the age of the participants.
