“Strong on bravura, ravishing in finesse, and flinging himself into the work with glee” – The Guardian
Emanuel Ax—the beloved American pianist who has been a fixture of the piano world since his 1974 win at the first Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition—is no stranger to Washington Performing Arts audiences, having appeared in recent years in collaborative performances with the likes of Yo-Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman, and others. He returns this season for his first solo Washington Performing Arts recital in ten years, performing an all-Beethoven program showcasing his “thoughtful, lyrical, lustrous” playing (Washington Post).
This performance is made possible through the generous support of Betsy and Robert Feinberg.
