Ax and von Otter: The Brahms Project

3:00 PM
Sunday, January 26, 2014

A frequent Symphony Center guest and a favorite among Chicago audiences, pianist Emanuel Ax joins mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter in a pairing of Brahms’ thoughtful and engaging songs with newly commissioned works by two of today’s most sought-after composers, Nico Muhly and Missy Mazzoli. Ax says, “I have loved Johannes Brahms’ music since I was a teenager. After studying his music for 40 years, I wish I had another 40 to understand it better.”
