About

Seven-time Grammy Award-winning Emanuel Ax explores the diversity of young Beethoven's compositions.

Born in Galicia, annexed by the Soviet Union after World War II, Emanuel Ax continued his studies at the famous Juilliard School in New York after his family departure to the United States. He came into the limelight in 1974, at the age of 25, winning the inaugural Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition. He repeated the feat five years later by winning the coveted Avery Fisher Prize. Thus, it provided him career opportunities with New York, Boston, Philadelphia or Cleveland orchestras, and he found himself rewarded by numerous Grammies for his recordings.
