Strauss’s Cosmic Power and Beethoven’s Vigorous Introspection, with Nelsons and Ax and Tanglewood

Emanuel Ax stands in an old brick building. Sunlight streams in through the windows, illuminating Ax's white hair and blue eyes. He wears a suit and frameless glasses, and he smiles at the camera.

Andris Nelsons leads the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra to the stars in Strauss’ Also sprach Zarathustra and on a journey back home to New England through Ives’s Three Places in New England. Emanuel Ax returns to Tanglewood for Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3, a musically complex work that takes the listener through light and shadow, hope and despair.
