|Description:||Texas Performing Arts welcomes back one of today's preeminent classical pianists, performing an all-Schubert program in the rich acoustics of the intimate Bates Recital Hall. Emanuel Ax's repertoire ranges from Bach to the 20th century, and his warmth and intelligence make him one of the most endearing and approachable musicians around. Described as a rare and marvelous artist, and winner of numerous major awards, Ax receives raves for his poetic temperament and unsurpassed virtuosity.
