About Esa-Pekka Salonen & Emanuel Ax
In Variations on a Theme of Joseph Haydn, Brahms travels in time, using ancient musical forms to explore possible futures. In Beethoven's Second Symphony, anarchic glee subverts Classical elegance. Between the two big Bs, precisely in the present, Esa-Pekka Salonen debuts his longtime friend Anders Hillborg's witty and colorful new Piano Concerto, performed with genial sophistication by soloist Emanuel Ax. Anders Hillborg’s Piano Concerto was commissioned for Emanuel Ax by the San Francisco Symphony with the generous support of a private patron.
