“His greatness, his overwhelming authority as musician, technician and probing intellect emerges quickly as he plays. Within minutes, we are totally captured by his intensity and pianistic achievement.” —Los Angeles Times

Grammy Award-winning pianist Emanuel Ax makes a special recital appearance in an all-Beethoven program, including the delicate and emotional “Für Elise”, and two of the Op. 2 sonatas, praised for their harmonic and dramatic thought. The Op. 2 sonatas, dedicated to Joseph Haydn, each contain four movements, an unusual length seeming to show that Beethoven was aspiring towards composing a symphony.
