Emanuel Ax: The Brahms Project

May18
3:00 PM
Sunday, May 18, 2014

“A poet at the piano” (Chicago Tribune), Emanuel Ax presents the third installment of his 2013/14 exploration of Brahms as both composer and muse. Here he pairs two Brahms works dedicated to Clara Schumann—the Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel, heavily influenced by Baroque contrapuntal forms, and the intensely romantic Second Sonata—with two newly commissioned works from Brett Dean and Missy Mazzoli.

Program

  • Brahms Piano Sonata No. 2 in F-sharp Minor
  • Brahms Four Piano Pieces
  • Brett Dean Hommage à Brahms [SCP Co-commission]
  • Missy Mazzoli Bolts of Loving Thunder
  • Brahms Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel
  • Brahms Intermezzo in B-flat Minor, Op. 117, No. 2 [ENCORE]
 

This performance is part of the:
