About

Emanuel Ax--who performs "with depth, power, and crisp bravura" (Washington Post)--returns to play Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3 on a program led by Herbert Blomstedt that also includes Beethoven's "Eroica" Symphony.

Lambert Orkis, NSO principal keyboard, on Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3:
"Inspired at age 5 by the power and dazzling beauty of a live performance of a Beethoven piano concerto, I was moved to become a pianist. The tragic-heroic qualities of Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto never fail to give me goose-bumps. For me, the work embodies the universal appeal of the ennobling process of struggle and ultimate triumph over adversity. Quite simply, it is Beethoven at his magnificent finest!"

Jennifer Mondie, NSO viola, on the program:
"This concert will be pure joy. Herbert Blomstedt is one of my favorite conductors--he's so genuine and invested in every note. And Emanuel Ax always has a dynamic and graceful interpretation of the Beethoven piano concerti."

Performance Timing: Part One - 35 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 45 min.

NOTE: There is NO late seating until intermission.

Organ Postlude:
Thu., Feb. 26 performance followed by a mini-recital on the Kennedy Center Concert Hall's Rubenstein Family Organ, free with purchase of concert ticket.
