Yefim Bronfman could clearly climb any mountain of piano literature on his own, but being his climbing partners on this Mt. Everest of concertos will make for an incomparable performance of Rachmaninoff’s towering opus. A first MSO performance of Schubert’s exuberant third symphony, and a first performance of Bartók’s suite from his ballet will challenge our fine orchestra to a fiery display of orchestral virtuosity. — John DeMain, Music Director
