NSO: Pianist Emanuel Ax

Famous for its ingenious use of a "fate" theme, the featured work, Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony, progresses from a somber beginning to an uplifting, triumphant march in the final movement. It's a work so rousing that during World War II it was performed by Russian orchestras during German bombings to raise morale. First, though, this National Symphony concert at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall opens with Silvestrov's The Messenger, and renowned pianist Emanuel Ax takes on Mozart's Piano Concerto No.17. As an Avery Fisher Prize-winning soloist and the longtime duo recital partner of Yo-Yo Ma, Ax has inspired a legion of fans known as "Manny Ax's Maniax." He's sure to bring his "thoughtful, lyrical [and] lustrous" (The Washington Post) performance style to this powerful piece.
