In Memory of Isaac Stern

Each a master in his own right, frequent partners Yo-Yo Ma and Emanuel Ax share five Grammy awards for their collaborations. In this performance, the beauty of Ma's cello coupled with the warmth of Ax's interpretations conjure fresh perspectives on Beethoven's cello sonatas and showcase the masterful technique of these two living legends.

Performance Timing: Approximately 2 hours, 20 minutes, with one 20-minute intermission.
