The musical dream team of Emanuel Ax, Leonidas Kavakos, and Yo-Yo Ma last performed together at Carnegie Hall as part of the Beethoven Celebration—literally days before the Hall’s extended closure as a result of the pandemic. They return to Beethoven’s brilliant piano trios in this program, showcasing the faultless musicianship and boundless joy they are known to bring to each performance.
