Arizona Musicfest is honored to present one of the world’s pre-eminent pianists. Since he first came to public attention, Emanuel Ax has been a prominent figure in classical music. In the words of the Los Angeles Times, “His greatness, his overwhelming authority as musician, technician and probing intellect emerges quickly as he plays.” Ax has garnered seven Grammy Awards and has been featured in concert with all of the world’s leading orchestras. Recent engagements have included performances with the orchestras of Philadelphia, Dallas, New York and Cleveland, to name a few.
