Emanuel Ax Demoted to ‘Accompanist”

We’ve previously featured the cellist Nicholas Canellakis and the pianist Michael Brown performing together as part of our Café Concert series on WQXR.org. But this week brings out a different side to the musicians’ collaboration, as the host and sometime sidekick of the online video series “Conversations with Nick Canellakis.”

Joined by the pianist Emanuel Ax – or “Yo-Yo Ma’s accompanist” – we hear about awards he didn’t win and the various “songs” that he performs. Watch:
