Emanuel Ax Performs Schubert and Liszt at Carnegie Hall

Thursday April 27, 2023, 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

A recital by Emanuel Ax at Carnegie Hall is always a celebrated occasion, each revealing new dimensions of “his greatness, his overwhelming authority as a musician, technician, and probing intellect” (Los Angeles Times). This thoughtful program is bookended by two Schubert compositions: the early A-Major Piano Sonata, whose performance by Ax has been called “exquisite” and “beautifully … sensitively played” by New York Arts; and the B-flat–Major Piano Sonata, which Ax performs with “a probing spirit that put[s] a spotlight on Schubert’s inventiveness” (The New York Times). Rounding out the program are selections by Liszt, including several of his inventive transcriptions of songs by Schubert.
