Emmanual Ax — In Conversation
August 11 @ 1:00 pm
Internationally acclaimed pianist Emanuel Ax joins the Tanglewood Learning Institute (TLI) in an informal conversation to share elements of his work and his life.
Emanuel Ax has been performing internationally since he won the first Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition in Tel Aviv in 1974. A longtime collaborator with the BSO and a Tanglewood regular, his 2019-2020 season included a European summer festivals tour with the Vienna Philharmonic and long-time collaborative partner Bernard Haitink, an Asian tour with the London Symphony and Sir Simon Rattle and three concerts with regular partners Leonidas Kavakos and Yo-Yo Ma at Carnegie Hall in March 2020. This summer, as concerts resume, he will perform at Tanglewood with the Boston Symphony and in a Beethoven trio program with partners Leonidas Kavakos and Yo-Yo Ma.
