Daring invention, profound emotion, sizzling virtuosity, and flowing lyricism are all key elements in this program that spans Bach to Liszt. Emanuel Ax is “an extremely satisfying pianist; he is at home in a wide variety of music, and his pianism is always thoughtful, lyrical, lustrous” (The Washington Post). Mozart’s drama, Liszt’s poetry, Bach’s precision, and Beethoven’s brio are showcased by one of the great pianists of our day.
