Three of the world's greatest classical musicians join forces for an intimate performance exploring the piano trios of Johannes Brahms—works that span the composer's life from youthful ardor to mature wisdom. “[Ax, Kavakos and Ma] seemed to relish every second on stage together. The crowd relished every single note. A thunderous applause filled the hall” (The Massachusetts Republican).
