Hailed by the Wall Street Journal as “a fearless pianist for whom no score is too demanding,” guest pianist Yefim Bronfman performs what has been called one the most challenging pieces for a pianist: Rachmaninov’s Piano Concert No. 3. Palm Beach Symphony gives a nod to Bronfman’s native county with Liadov’s Kikimora, Op. 63 that brings to life the Russian folk tale of a mischievous and vengeful spirit and Shostakovich’s commanding Symphony No. 5, the work of such undeniable brilliance that it restored his favor and safety with the Soviet authorities for a brief time.
Internationally recognized as one of today’s most acclaimed and admired pianists, Bronfman stands among a handful of artists regularly sought by conductors, orchestras, festivals and recital series. Known for his commanding technique, power and exceptional lyrical gifts, he has been nominated for six Grammy® awards, winning in 1997 with Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Los Angeles Philharmonic for their recording of the three Bartok Piano Concerti. His concert schedule this year includes performances in Spain, Germany, Paris, Zurich and London while in North America he can be heard in recital in San Francisco, La Jolla and Aliso Viejo and with orchestras in Atlanta, Los Angeles and Montreal. The Los Angeles Times reported, “Bronfman is well known as a powerhouse pianist with a tone of crystalline clarity. When he turns the volume down, each note stands out like a perfectly shaped pearl. When he doesn’t, look out. You might get hit by flying chords.”
