Piano legend Emanuel Ax opens this stunning CSO season—the first to be held in Cincinnati’s Art Deco jewel, the Taft Theatre. Ax will perform Beethoven’s grand and magnificent Emperor Concerto. Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony, written as a humorous, determined, and confident response to his critics, completes this opening-weekend program.
Classical Conversations, pre-concert talks, will take place in the auditorium on Sep 8 at 6:30pm and on Sep 10 at 7pm with Isaac Thompson, CSO Director of Artistic Administration.
