Speaker: Lia Jensen-Abbott, Albion College

In recent years, Emanuel Ax has focused his performances and recordings on works by Beethoven, Brahms, and Haydn. With this highly personal, all-Chopin recital, he returns to his roots, presenting a program of some of his favorite works by the Polish composer.

Born in Poland, Mr. Ax moved to Winnipeg, Canada with his family when he was a young boy. In 1974, he won the first Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition in Tel Aviv. He was also a recipient of the Michaels Award of Young Concert Artists (1975) and the Avery Fisher Prize (1979). Mr. Ax has been a Sony Classical exclusive recording artist since 1987, most recently releasing a recording of Brahms Trios with Yo-Yo Ma and Leonidas Kavakos.
