Students from NEC’s Piano Department perform in a masterclass with renowned artist Emanuel Ax.
Born in Lvov, Poland, Emanuel Ax moved to Winnipeg, Canada, with his family when he was a young boy. His studies at the Juilliard School were supported by the sponsorship of the Epstein Scholarship Program of the Boys Clubs of America, and he subsequently won the Young Concert Artists Award. Additionally, he attended Columbia University where he majored in French. Mr. Ax captured public attention in 1974 when he won the first Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition in Tel Aviv. In 1975 he won the Michaels Award of Young Concert Artists followed four years later by the coveted Avery Fisher Prize.
Mr. Ax will be performing Beethoven's Piano Concerto No.2 with Andris Nelsons and the Boston Symphony Orchestra on February 14 and Mozart's Piano Concerto No.22 with Nelsons and the BSO on February 16, 17, 18 and 21.
