Globally celebrated pianist, Emanuel Ax, will perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 22 with Andris Nelsons and The Boston Symphony Orchestra’s season opening concert in The Shed at Tanglewood on July 5 at 8 p.m. The program that evening will also feature the orchestra playing Mahler’s Symphony No. 5.
Ax will be back at Tanglewood in August to play two concerts at Ozawa Hall – one with Leonidas Kavakos and one with Kavaokos and Yo-Yo Ma -- and will participate in a Concerto Conducting Class led by Stefan Asbury. The latter is a Tanglewood Learning Institute OpenStudio event to be held July 30 at 10 a.m. in Ozawa Hall.
