Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Brahms’s piano trios trace his development from a youthful disciple of Schumann to a mature, fully developed master. Over the years, his youthful ardor gives way to autumnal nostalgia, but his magnificent melodies, splashes of gentle humor, and muscular power are constants. The love of Brahms brings pianist Emanuel Ax, violinist Leonidas Kavakos, and cellist Yo-Yo Ma together to form a super trio.
