There are few pianists as universally beloved as Emanuel Ax. In constant demand since his 1974 win at the first Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition, Ax has earned a reputation for top-notch performances that "seem to enfold every listener in a metaphorical embrace" (Seattle Times). Ax recreates his New York recital debut program on its 40th anniversary, with the vantage point of profound musical maturity, depth and understanding.
Ax is an extremely satisfying pianist; he is at home in a wide variety of music and his pianism is always thoughtful, lyrical, lustrous.
