Emanuel Ax


Born to Polish parents in what is today Lviv, Ukraine, Emanuel Ax moved to Winnipeg, Canada, with his family when he was a young boy. Ax made his New York debut in the Young Concert Artists Series, and in 1974 won the first Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition in Tel Aviv. In 1975 he won the Michaels Award of Young Concert Artists, followed by the Avery Fisher Prize.

His 2023–24 season focuses on the world premiere of Anders Hillborg’s Piano Concerto No. 2, The MAX Concerto, commissioned for him by the San Francisco Symphony and Esa-Pekka Salonen with subsequent performances in Stockhom and New York. He continues the “Beethoven For 3” tour with violinist Leonidas Kavakos and cellist Yo-Yo Ma. Ax can also be heard in recital throughout North America, culminating at New York’s Carnegie Hall in April. A European tour will include concerts in Holland, Italy, Germany, France, and the Czech Republic.

Ax has been a Sony Classical exclusive recording artist since 1987. Following the success of the Brahms trios with Kavakos and Ma, the trio launched a multiyear project to record all the Beethoven trios and symphonies arranged for trio, of which the first two discs have been released. Ax has received Grammy Awards for his cycle of Haydn’s piano sonatas and for recordings with Ma. In the 2004–05 season Ax contributed to an International Emmy Award–Winning BBC documentary commemorating the Holocaust. In 2013 he received the Echo Klassik Award for Solo Recording of the Year.

Emanuel Ax is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and holds honorary doctorates of music from Skidmore College, New England Conservatory of Music, Yale University, and Columbia University.
