Emanuel Ax

Just as pianist Emanuel Ax makes standard piano repertoire sound fresh and new, so also does he play musical premieres as though he’s known them for a lifetime. The winner of seven Grammy Awards, Ax is in demand as a soloist with the world’s major orchestras, and as a recitalist in far more intimate settings. His musical depth and understanding is at the heart of his long chamber-music partnerships with such greats as Yo-Yo Ma, Yefim Bronfman, and Itzhak Perlman.
