Piano Trio No. 1 in B-flat Major, D. 898
Piano Trio No. 1 in B Major, Op. 8

A meeting of three chamber music titans! Longtime duo partners and consummate masters, pianist Emanuel Ax and cellist Yo-Yo Ma join with dynamic violinist Leonidas Kavakos for an evening of chamber works played with soaring beauty and impeccable dexterity. Ax and Ma have been collaborating for decades and share five Grammys for their recordings together; Kavakos was artist-in-residence at the New York Philharmonic last season. They combine their talents in two of the most substantial and effusive works in the piano trio repertoire.
