About

FEATURING A NEW WORK BY EDGAR MEYER

Two Kennedy Center favorites join forces for one extraordinary concert. Beloved for his poetic lyricism and jovial performance style, seven-time Grammy-winning pianist Emanuel Ax is one of the world's best-known musicians. A trailblazer for playing bass as a solo instrument, Edgar Meyer has won three Grammy Awards for his crossover genius in classical and bluegrass ensembles. Continuing this season's tradition of presenting powerhouse talents in intimate Fortas performances, Ax and Meyer share the stage in an inspiring program.

"Meyer is the most remarkable virtuoso in the history of the bass." --The New Yorker

"Ax performs with depth, power, and crisp bravura." --The Washington Post
