For nearly four decades Emanuel Ax has been one of the world's pre-eminent pianists, receiving numerous awards and honors, including Grammy awards for his recordings (with Yo-Yo Ma) of the Beethoven and Brahms sonatas for piano and cello. The New York Times wrote of Ax’s concert artistry: “[He] played with youthful brio, incisive rhythm, bountiful imagination, delicacy when called for and thundering power when the piano fought back.”
The evening’s program will include Brahms’ Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel, Op.24; Missy Mazzoli’s New Work for Solo Piano; Brahms’ Piano Sonata No. 2 in F-sharp Minor, Op. 2; Brahms’ Clavierstücke, Op. 118; Brett Dean’s New Work for Solo Piano; and Brahms’ Variations from Sextet No. 1 in B-flat Major, Op. 18.
