Karina Canellakis conducts Wagner, Chopin, and Rachmaninoff featuring Emanuel Ax, piano

Exterior of the Koussevitzky Music Shed with Tanglewood lawn


Koussevitzky Music Shed, Lenox/Stockbridge, MA

International star pianist and Tanglewood favorite Emanuel Ax, who will also play several chamber music performances in Ozawa Hall this summer, joins the BSO and returning conductor Karina Canellakis for Frédéric Chopin’s characteristically fluid and sparkling Piano Concerto No. 2, composed when he was just 19. Richard Wagner’s atmospheric Prelude to his opera Lohengrin demonstrates the composer’s astonishing imagination for orchestral texture and color. Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances wonderfully balances brilliant orchestration, lyricism, and rhythmic drive in what would be his final composition.

Ticket includes admission to the 6pm Prelude Concert.

Gates open at 5:30pm
