Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture
Emanuel Ax plays Brahms
Andrew Litton, conductor

Enjoy two Tchaikovsky classics: his romantic overture to Romeo and Juliet, plus his triumphant 1812 Overture complete with cannon effects. Seven-time Grammy-winning pianist Emanuel Ax, known for his "thoughtful, lyrical, and lustrous" (The Washington Post) artistry, begins the program with Brahms's grand Piano Concerto No. 2; broad in scope and rich in drama, the four-movement concerto is a symphony in disguise.
