Biography
Yefim Bronfman by Dario Acosta

Yefim Bronfman’s commanding technique, power, and exceptional lyrical gifts are consistently acknowledged by the press and audiences alike.

In celebration of Yuri Temirkanov’s 80th birthday, Mr. Bronfman’s began the 2018–19 season on a European tour with the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, followed by a Scandinavian tour with Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. Yefim Bronfman’s orchestral concerts in Europe include the Orchestre national de France, London Philharmonic Orchestra, WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne, Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Berlin Philharmonic, and Vienna Philharmonic on tour. In the US he returns to the New York and Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestras, The Cleveland Orchestra, and the Houston, St. Louis, Cincinnati, San Francisco, and Dallas symphony orchestras. He performs recitals in New York (at Carnegie Hall), Berkeley, Stanford, Aspen, Madrid, Geneva, Cologne, Leipzig, Munich, Berlin, Naples, and Rome, and on tour in the spring with mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kozena.

Mr. Bronfman has given numerous solo recitals in North America, Europe, and Asia, including acclaimed debuts at Carnegie Hall (1989) and Avery Fisher (now David Geffen) Hall (1993). In 1991 he gave a series of joint recitals with Isaac Stern in Russia, marking Mr. Bronfman’s first public performances there since his immigration to Israel at age 15. That same year he was awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Prize, and in 2010 he received Northwestern University’s Jean Gimbel Lane Prize in Piano Performance.

Born in Tashkent in the Soviet Union, Yefim Bronfman immigrated to Israel in 1973, where he studied with pianist Arie Vardi, head of the Rubin Academy of Music at Tel Aviv University. He also studied at The Juilliard School, Marlboro School of Music, and the Curtis Institute of Music, under Rudolf Firkušný, Leon Fleisher, and Rudolf Serkin. He is a 2015 recipient of an honorary doctorate from the Manhattan School of Music.

Yefim Bronfman became an American citizen in July 1989.
