A master class given by Emanuel Ax

I enjoy highlighting workshops and master classes, and today’s post features a class given by distinguished American pianist Emanual Ax. It was recorded in December 2014 and published in June 2015 by the Jerusalem Music Centre. This public lesson focuses on Mozart’s sublime Concerto in C minor K. 491, and it is played by Itai Navon Ax is a prominent pedagogue and faculty member at the Juilliard School in New York.

There’s always so much to learn from master teachers, and I hope you find it interesting.

My Publications:

For much more information about how to practice piano repertoire, take a look at my two-book piano course, Play it again: PIANO (Schott). Covering a huge array of styles and genres, 49 progressive pieces from approximately Grade 1 – 8 level are featured, with at least two pages of practice tips for every piece. A convenient and beneficial course for students of any age, with or without a teacher, and it can also be used alongside piano examination syllabuses too.
