Emanuel Ax, Piano – Leonidas Kavakos, Violin – Yo-Yo Ma, Cello

To mark the centenary of Isaac Stern’s birth, a present-day dream team—Emanuel Ax, Leonidas Kavakos, and Yo-Yo Ma—pays tribute to the legendary violinist and the ensembles he anchored, which included pianist Eugene Istomin and cellist Leonard Rose. This all-Beethoven program features an otherworldly cello sonata from the composer’s late period, a gentle violin sonata dedicated to his patron Archduke Rudolf, and an intense trio that helped redefine contemporary notions of chamber music.
