Pianist Emanuel Ax set to return to Chipping Campden
AN internationally acclaimed pianist is returning to Chipping Campden to perform for one night only.
Emanuel Ax has agreed to include the town in his autumn concerts itinerary and will appear at St James’s Church on Saturday, October 12, at 7.30pm.
Charlie Bennett, of the Chipping Campden International Music Festival, said he was delighted the pianist is returning to the town as he normally restricts his appearances to the major music capitals of the world.
His autumn tour includes San Francisco, New York, Amsterdam, Bucharest, London, Chicago, Beijing, Tokyo and Geneva.
After originally capturing public attention in 1974 when he won the first Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition in Tel Aviv, he is now one of the world’s best-loved pianists.
His programme will consist of a varied selection, including two Beethoven sonatas.
Tickets are £20. For details, call 01386 849018 or visit campdenmusic festival.co.uk.
