Emanuel Ax, Piano

Wednesday, March 27, 2019 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage

Emanuel Ax by Lisa-Marie Mazzucco
The Guardian has written that Emanuel Ax’s playing is "always marvelously articulate and totally unfussy. Nothing is done for effect or to draw attention to the player rather than to what he is playing.” He’ll bring these qualities to a recital in which he explores the daring contrapuntal innovations of Bach, Chopin’s soulful expressiveness, Ravel’s harmonic audacity, and more.

Ravel’s Valses nobles et sentimentales 

Ravel said he was imitating Schubert in his Valses nobles et sentimentales, but the harmonic audacity and rhythmic twists render the connection tenuous at best. In eight brief movements, Ravel tempers emotion with formal restraint in a work of great subtlety and wit. Those harmonies certainly puzzled the premiere audience, who were confused by the daring dissonance that they mistook for wrong notes played by pianist Louis Aubert.
