Bach Festival Society to Welcome Emanuel Ax, Playing Beethoven and Brahms, 10/23

"Emanuel Ax is one of America's most prolific virtuosi," says John Sinclair, Artistic Director of the Bach Festival Society. "It has been nearly a decade since his last appearance on the Bach Festival Visiting Artists Series, and we are honored to welcome him back.

One of the best known classical musicians of our time and winner of multiple Grammy awards for both solo and chamber performances, Emanuel Ax teaches on the faculty of the Juilliard School of Music. He resides in New York City with his wife, pianist Yoko Nozaki. Ax is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, is a recipient of Yale University's Sanford Medal, and holds an honorary doctorate of music from Yale, awarded in May 2007.
