Leonidas Kavakos, Emanuel Ax, and Yo-Yo Ma by Shane McCauley
With an all-Beethoven program, Emanuel Ax, Leonidas Kavakos, and Yo-Yo Ma honor the legacy of the great ensembles that featured violinist Isaac Stern. The violin sonata surprises with its underlying tension and energy bursts, while the richly lyrical cello sonata’s gentle melancholy is cast aside in its genial finale. The “Archduke” is a groundbreaking work where grand scale, tremendous expressive power, and a seamless integration of the three instruments sets the stage for the great trios of Schubert, Brahms, Dvořák, and more.
