Event Info

There’s no disputing that Franz Liszt was a 19th-century rock star of the piano. Be there when Yefim Bronfman joins the Philharmonic for this Liszt masterpiece, the epitome of virtuosity. You’re in good hands with the “powerhouse virtuoso who appears unruffled by the most demanding works in the repertoire” (The Wall Street Journal). Plus folk tunes abound in works by Dvořák, Ravel, and Kodaly.

Yefim Bronfman


Yefim Bronfman


Yefim Bronfman by Dario Acosta


Internationally recognized as one of today’s most acclaimed and admired pianists, Yefim Bronfman stands among a handful of artists regularly sought by festivals, orchestras, conductors, and recital series. His commanding technique, power, and exceptional lyrical gifts are consistently acknowledged by the press and audiences alike. At the center of his 2015–16 season is a residency with the Dresden Staatskapelle, which includes all the Beethoven concertos conducted by Christian Thielemann in Dresden and on tour in Europe. Mr. Bronfman also performs Bartók concertos with the London Symphony Orchestra and Valery Gergiev in Edinburgh, London, Vienna, Luxembourg, and New York. His recital performances include a cycle of the daunting complete Prokofiev sonatas over three programs in Berlin, New York’s Carnegie Hall, and Cal Performances, Berkeley.

As a regular guest, Mr. Bronfman returns to the New York Philharmonic, where he served as the 2013–14 season Mary and James G. Wallach Artist-in-Residence, as well as to the Vienna and Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestras; the Mariinsky, Cleveland, and Philadelphia orchestras; and the Boston, Montreal, Toronto, San Francisco, and Seattle symphony orchestras. Following the success of their first U.S. tour together last spring, Mr. Bronfman rejoins violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter and cellist Lynn Harrell in May for a European tour that takes them from Madrid to Berlin, Moscow, and Milan.

Mr. Bronfman was awarded the Avery Fisher Prize (in 1991) and the Jean Gimbel Lane Prize in piano performance from Northwestern University (2010). He has been nominated for three Grammy Awards, and won for his recording of Bartók’s three piano concertos with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Esa-Pekka Salonen. He was nominated for a 2013 Grammy for the recording of Magnus Lindberg’s Piano Concerto No. 2 with Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic, commissioned for him by the Orchestra.

Born in Tashkent in the Soviet Union in 1958, Yefim Bronfman immigrated to Israel with his family in 1973.
