About This Performance

“A big, rich sound… phrasing breathes with great purpose. Even single notes don’t leave the strings without meaning” (Philadelphia Inquirer). This assessment of Pamela Frank’s artistry will ring true to her many fans who eagerly await this program with equally beloved recital partner Emanuel Ax. “Ax’s greatness, his overwhelming authority as a musician, technician, and probing intellect emerges quickly as he plays,” raves the Los Angeles Times. “Within minutes, we are totally captured by his intensity and pianistic achievement.”
