Emanuel Ax, piano

“Thoughtful, lyrical, lustrous” (Washington Post)


Apr 14, 2024


About the Artist

His greatness, his overwhelming authority as musician, technician and probing intellect emerges quickly as he plays. Within minutes, we are totally captured by his intensity and pianistic achievement.” (Los Angeles Times)

“Mr Ax…played with youthful brio, incisive rhythm, bountiful imagination, delicacy when called for and thundering power when the piano fought back.” (The New York Times)

Has any superlative not been used to describe Emanuel Ax’s playing? Is any superlative adequate? Few musicians have graced Spivey Hall’s stage as often or to as admiring an audience.

We welcome him back for a unique program of Beethoven sonatas interwoven with works by Schoenberg and Webern.
