The internationally acclaimed piano virtuoso Emanuel Ax joins The Classical Network's Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler for Between the Keys, Tuesday February 6th at 10 PM, with a rebroadcast Monday February 13th at noon.
In a lively discussion on the topic of an upcoming box set release from Sony/BMG encompassing the pianist's complete RCA Victor recordings, Mr. Ax talks about his early career, his attitude about recording, and his lessons with Arthur Rubinstein. We'll also explore Mr. Ax's wide-ranging discography with works by Liszt, Brahms, Chopin and John Adams.
"Manny is one of music's positive and uplifting beacons," says Jed, "and one of the most open minded, forward thinking artists I know, who, at the same time, has a healthy respect for the great keyboard traditions and the luminaries who came before him. I'm really honored that he has graced Between the Keys with his presence and unique insights into the piano world."
