LOTTA WENNÄKOSKI Hava 
SCHUBERT Symphony No. 6 
BRAHMS Piano Concerto No. 2 

Distinguished pianist Emanuel Ax returns to perform Brahms’ mighty Second Piano Concerto, notable for its formidable demands. A scintillating work by Finnish-born composer Lotta Wennäkoski, Hava, is paired with Schubert’s Sixth Symphony, which ranges from the majestic thunder of his idol, Beethoven, to a light-as-air operatic finale.
