Mike Lawson • News • January 24, 2018

Pianist Emanuel Ax, violinist Leonidas Kavakos, and cellist Yo-Yo Ma will come together to perform Brahms’s complete piano trios at Carnegie Hall on Thursday, February 22 at 8:00 p.m. in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage. The trio will present the three works chronologically, beginning with Piano Trios Nos. 2 and 3, and concluding with No. 1.

All three artists have been praised for their interpretations of Brahms as soloists and colleagues, and Ax and Ma share four Grammy Awards for their recordings of Brahms’s chamber music. With Leonidas Kavakos, they first performed all three Brahms piano trios at the Tanglewood Festival in 2015. The three acclaimed artists later recorded the trios, released by Sony Classical in 2017.
