American pianist Emanuel Ax and Dutch conductor Bernard Haitink have been frequent collaborators, especially in the music of Brahms. Here they are with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe in Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2. The performance was recorded live at the Royal Albert Hall during last year's Proms.
Next week Ax will be appearing with the Austin Symphony playing music by Beethoven (Piano Concerto No. 2) and the rarely-heard Symphony No. 4 for Piano and Orchestra by Syzmanowski. Ax will give a recital at Koerner Hall in Toronto on May 13. For more on Emanuel Ax check out his website at www.emanuelax.com.
