Life, death, and classical musicEmanuel Ax is the multiple Grammy Award-winning pianist known for his expressive playing. Tonight he performs Tod und Verklärung (Death and Transfiguration) by Strauss, an eerily prophetic piece on the death of an artist. Prefaced by the wise music of Bach and Mozart, this is sure to be a beautiful and moving concert.
