Hear beloved performer Emanuel Ax, renowned for his poetic performances, in an intimate recital that includes one of Beethoven's most notable sonatas, the serene Waldstein. “Ax has an opulent tone and an unerring sense of lyricism. He makes difficult passages seem utterly normal. His performances are of a pianist at one with the music” (Chicago Tribune).
