Emanuel Ax
and
Yefim Bronfman

A performance as rare as it is magical: two of the greatest pianists of the age at the intimate Terrace Theater. Emanuel Ax captured public attention in 1974 when he won the first Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition in Tel Aviv, and launched a remarkable career. His "Luminous virtuosity... has made him one of the leading pianists of his generation" (The Seattle Times). Winner of the prestigious Avery Fisher Prize, Yefim Bronfman "has power and precision, to be sure. More important, he plays with real sense of gesture-filled space and articulate weight, far beyond mere notesmanship" (Los Angeles Times). With works by Rachmaninoff and Brahms, this program promises to be a highlight of the season and an event you'll talk about for years to come.

Program: Works for Two Pianos
BRAHMS Variations on a theme by Haydn, Op. 56b
RACHMANINOFF Suite No. 2, Op. 17
BRAHMS Sonata in F minor, Op. 34b
