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.

In recognition of a relationship of more than 30 years, Mr. Bronfman will join the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and Zubin Mehta on the orchestra’s fall U.S. tour, including a stop at Carnegie Hall, followed by concerts in Munich, London, and Vienna with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Mariss Jansons, another frequent collaborator. In addition to returns to the New York and Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestras, The Cleveland and Philadelphia Orchestras, and Pittsburgh, National, Indianapolis, and Toronto symphony orchestras, in the spring he will tour with the Vienna Philharmonic and Andrés Orozco-Estrada in a special program celebrating the pianist’s 60th birthday. In Europe he can also be heard with the Berlin Philharmonic; in recital in Italy, France, Belgium, Germany, and London; and on tour with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra conducted by Andris Nelsons. A tour in Asia with the London Symphony Orchestra and Gianandrea Noseda brings the season to a close in June.

Mr. Bronfman has given numerous solo recitals in the leading halls of North America, Europe, and the Far East, including acclaimed debuts at Carnegie Hall in 1989 and Avery Fisher (now David Geffen) Hall in 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 emigration to Israel at age 15. That same year he was awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Prize, one of the highest honors given to American instrumentalists, and in 2010 he was honored as the recipient of the Jean Gimbel Lane prize in piano performance from Northwestern University.

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