Emanuel Ax Plays Beethoven
What You'll Get
Grammy Award-winning pianist Emanuel Ax makes a special recital appearance in an all-Beethoven program, including the delicate and emotional “Für Elise,” and two of the Op. 2 sonatas, praised for their harmonic and dramatic thought. The Op. 2 sonatas, dedicated to Joseph Haydn, each contain four movements, an unusual length seeming to show that Beethoven was aspiring towards composing a symphony. A Sony Classical exclusive recording artist since 1987, Emanuel Ax’s recent releases include Mendelssohn Trios with Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman, Strauss’ Enoch Arden narrated by Patrick Stewart, and discs of two-piano music by Brahms and Rachmaninoff with Yefim Bronfman. In 2015, Ax was featured with Itzhak Perlman in a Deutche Grammophon duo recording of Sonatas by Faure and Strauss. Presented by the Philharmonic Society of Orange County.
