Emanuel Ax Plays Brahms says
"Emanuel Ax shone....He played with dazzling comfort, like the music was his oldest and best friend, simultaneously familiar and fascinating....It was almost as if the pianist was a painter, consciously creating the world of the orchestra around him. Images came to mind of Brahms in his parlor, sketching away while breezes blow in through an open window." —Bachtrack, October 2015 (New York Philharmonic)

Bask in the warmth of Brahms’ melodic genius when Emanuel Ax returns to perform his majestic Piano Concerto No. 2, a work that enchants from the opening horn solo to the gypsy-inspired melodies of the lilting finale. Andrés also conducts Charles Ives’ Symphony No. 2 as part of a four-year cycle of this great American composer’s symphonies.
