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

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 Asia, 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.
