Ax Plays Mozart
September 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$20
Opening the season with a bang, the Omaha Symphony is joined by legendary GRAMMY®-winning pianist Emanuel Ax performing one of Mozart’s grandest concerti, Piano Concerto No. 25. The Los Angeles Times describes Ax, “His greatness, his overwhelming authority as musician, technician, and probing intellect emerges quickly as he plays. Within minutes, we are totally captured by his intensity and pianistic achievement.” Also on the program is Chopin’s soloist showcase, the Andante Spianato and Grande Polonaise, a work that spans breathtaking beauty and dizzying brilliance in a matter of moments. Ending on an uplifting note, the pastoral and optimistic nature of Brahms’ beloved Symphony No. 2 envelops you in rich harmonies, lush melodies, and masterful orchestration.
