Dazzling Tanglewood, Schubert concert features all-star cast with Ma, Ax, Jacobsen and Barton / MassLive review
Playful or passionate in another. Schubert's music covers a wide range. And like Mozart, both Austrian composers created an incredible amount of music during their sadly short lives. Symphonies. Sacred works. Concertos. But for many people, it's Schubert's chamber music that truly stands out. His achingly-passionate sonatas (especially his later ones written shortly before his death in 1828) ...
Yo-Yo Ma and Emanuel Ax get to the heart of it at Kennedy Center / Washington Post
Playing Beethoven often seems to involve choosing sides. Does it make more sense to skew his music toward the poise and restraint of the classical composers who influenced him, or to treat his work with the unbuttoned emotionalism of the later romantic composers he helped give rise to? The best of Beethoven interpreters find musical truth by marrying both of those polarities in his scores. Cellist Yo...

Artists On the Bench - with Emanuel Ax / San Francisco Classical Voice interview
Emanuel Ax is notoriously nice - one of the kindest, funniest, genuinely caring people in the business. And, although he is 40 years into a career as one of the world's greatest pianists, both as a soloist and a chamber musician, and although, at 65, he's still inarguably at the top of his game, he maintains a completely genuine sense of modesty, humility, and respect for the hard work, and the great fun...
