Emanuel Ax Plays Mozart
Part of: 2022-2023 Carnegie Hall Series
New York’s “hometown band,” performs Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 18. The piece features wonderful interplay between orchestra and pianist—who, in this case, is the world-renowned Emanuel Ax. Also featured on the program is Schubert’s monumental Symphony No. 9. It was his final completed symphony, conveniently and reasonably known as his “Great” symphony, and Schubert never had the pleasure of properly hearing it performed in concert. Our privilege to do so remains one of his greatest parting gifts to the world.
