About Yefim Bronfman

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. Bronfman works regularly with an illustrious group of conductors, and summer engagements have regularly taken him to the major festivals of Europe and the US. Always keen to explore chamber music repertoire, his partners have included Pinchas Zukerman, Martha Argerich, Magdalena Kožená, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Emmanuel Pahud and many others. He has also 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 Hall in 1993. Widely praised for his solo, chamber and orchestral recordings, Mr. Bronfman has been nominated for 6 Grammy Awards, winning in 1997 with Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Los Angeles Philharmonic for their recording of the three Bartok Piano Concerti. 

Bronfman’s playing was a finely spun whirl of notes that verged on the unbelievable . . . it was impossible to take one’s eyes or ears off the bear-like, protean pianist, who has both technical brawn and a glittery grace.   – The Los Angeles Times

It’s safe to say there is no pianist around remotely like Yefim Bronfman.  – The Philadelphia Enquirer
