  Emanuel Ax is an internationally acclaimed, Grammy-Award winning classical pianist.

He is on the faculty for the Tanglewood Music Center and this year takes on the newly created title of Koussevitzky Artist, an honorary title reflecting his extraordinary 30-plus-year involvement with the BSO at Tanglewood and at Symphony Hall in Boston.

He has two Tanglewood concerts this week: on Thursday he will perform an all-Brahms program with Yo-Yo Ma and violinist Leonidas Kavakos at Ozawa Hall and on Sunday he and Yo-Yo Ma will perform Beethoven's Complete Sonatas for Cello and Piano in the Koussevitzky Music Shed.

Dr. Alan Chartock is professor emeritus at the University at Albany. He hosts the weekly Capitol Connection series, heard on public radio stations around New York. The program, for almost 12 years, highlighted interviews with Governor Mario Cuomo and now continues with conversations with state political leaders. Dr. Chartock also appears each week on The Media Project and The Roundtable and offers commentary on Morning Edition, weekdays at 7:40 a.m.
