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.
