ROBERT SCHUMANN

Humoreske Op. 20, Fantasiestücke Op. 12

Emanuel Ax

Born in Lvov, Poland, Emanuel Ax moved to Winnipeg, Canada, with his family when he was a young boy. His studies at the Juilliard School were supported by the sponsorship of the Epstein Scholarship Program of the Boys Clubs of America, and he subsequently won the Young Concert Artists Award. Additionally, he attended Columbia University, where he majored in French. Emanuel Ax captured public attention in 1974 when he won the first Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition in Tel Aviv. In 1975 he won the Michaels Award of Young Concert Artists followed four years later by the coveted Avery Fisher Prize.

In recognition of the bicentenaries of Chopin and Schumann in 2010 and in partnership with London’s Barbican, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, Carnegie Hall, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the San Francisco Symphony, Ax has commissioned new works from composers John Adams, Peter Lieberson and Osvaldo Golijov. He has performed many works by contemporary composers, and his recordings of Haydn Sonatas received several Grammy awards.

The music dates from the late 1830s, when Robert Schumann was madly in love with Clara Wieck: ‘I have dreamed about you, I have thought about you with a love such as I have never experienced before… all this you will find beautifully depicted in my Op.20, the Grand Humoreske.
