Emanuel Ax

Born in Lvov, Poland, Emanuel Ax captured public attention in 1974 when he won the first Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition; he went on to receive other honors including the Young Concert Artists Michaels Award (1975), Avery Fisher Prize (1979), and being named an Honorary Member of the New York Philharmonic (2011) and the Orchestra’s Mary and James G. Wallach Artist-in-Residence (2012–13 season).

Three prominent duo collaborations will be carried through Mr. Ax’s current season. He partners with longtime friend and colleague Itzhak Perlman first with the release of Fauré and Strauss sonatas on the Deutsche Grammophon label, and then for concerts in Kansas City, Ravinia, Dallas, Washington, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, and La Jolla. He also joins violinist Pamela Frank for Mozart sonatas in Philadelphia and New York, and longstanding partner Yo-Yo Ma in Norfolk, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., as well as at Carnegie Hall for all of the Beethoven cello and piano sonatas. In addition to his annual appearances with the NewYork Philharmonic, he will returns to orchestras in Houston, Chicago, and Pittsburgh, as well as the Tokyo Symphony, and then appear in concerts in Paris, Berlin, Rome, Tel Aviv, and Amsterdam. Mr. Ax will give solo recitals in Tokyo, Arizona, Florida, Texas, and Boston, as well as at Carnegie Hall as part of the venue’s 125th anniversary celebrations in May.

Emanuel Ax is a Grammy-winning artist exclusive to Sony Classical since 1987; his most recent release is a recital disc exploring the variations form by composers including Haydn, Schumann, and Copland. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and holds honorary doctorates from Yale and Columbia universities.
