Biography
Emanuel Ax

Born in modern-day Lvov, Poland, Emanuel Ax moved to Winnipeg, Canada, with his family when he was a young boy. A winner of the Young Concert Artist Award, Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition, Michaels Award, and the Avery Fisher Prize, Mr. Ax is also a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Always a committed exponent of contemporary composers, with works written for him by John Adams, Christopher Rouse, Krzysztof Penderecki, Bright Sheng, and Melinda Wagner already in his repertoire, Mr. Ax performed the World Premiere of HK Gruber’s Piano Concerto with the New York Philharmonic in January 2017, followed in March by the work’s European Premiere with the Berlin Philharmonic and Simon Rattle. Also in the 2016–17 season, Mr. Ax returns to the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Chicago, San Francisco, Cincinnati, Toronto, Seattle, Milwaukee, and Detroit symphony orchestras.

A Sony Classical exclusive recording artist since 1987, recent releases include Mendelssohn Piano Trios with Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman, Richard Strauss’s Enoch Arden narrated by Patrick Stewart, and discs of music for two pianos by Brahms and Rachmaninoff with Yefim Bronfman. In 2015 Deutsche Grammophon released a duo recording with Itzhak Perlman of violin-and-piano sonatas by Fauré and R. Strauss, which the two artists presented on tour during the 2015–16 season. A frequent and committed chamber music partner, he has worked regularly with such artists as Young Uck Kim, Cho-Liang Lin, Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, Peter Serkin, Jaime Laredo, and the late Isaac Stern.

Mr. Ax holds honorary doctorates of music from Yale and Columbia Universities. Emanuel Ax served as the Philharmonic’s Mary and James G. Wallach Artist-in-Residence in the 2012–13 season. In April 2011 he was named an Honorary Member of the Philharmonic-Symphony Society of New York in recognition of his 100th performance with the Orchestra.
