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.


Melanie Spanswick has written and published a wide range of courses, anthologies, examination syllabuses, and text books, including Play it again: PIANO (published by Schott Music). This best-selling graded, progressive piano course contains a large selection of repertoire featuring a huge array of styles and genres, with copious practice tips and suggestions for every piece.
