'Bronfman Braces for the Five Piano Concertos': The New York Times

Posted June 11, 2014

Yefim Bronfman NY Philharmonic

“From a musicological standpoint, it is a miracle. But when you walk onstage, you don’t want to think about miracles. You want to play."

So said Artist-in-Residence Yefim Bronfman about Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto last week when he sat down with The New York Times in his practice room to discuss Beethoven's beloved piano concertos. 

The insightful interview is great preparation for The Beethoven Piano Concertos: A Philharmonic Festival, which starts tonight and stars Bronfman with the Philharmonic and Music Director Alan Gilbert at the podium.
