Live and Local

Pianist Emanuel Ax


Pianist Emanuel Ax recalls that when he was six years old, he heard a recording of Arthur Rubinstein playing Chopin and decided "that was the greatest thing you could do in life," and he's been doing it virtually ever since. I'll talk with Mr. Ax on the Wednesday edition of Live and Local, in advance of his Urbana recital Thursday night and I'll play some recordings by several local musicians.
