New York Philharmonic, Alan Gilbert, Walt Disney Concert Hall, La Phil, Yefim Bronfman
Yefim Bronfman is widely regarded as one of the most talented virtuoso pianists performing today. His commanding technique and exceptional lyrical gifts have won him consistent critical acclaim and enthusiastic audiences worldwide, whether for his solo recitals, his prestigious orchestral engagements or his rapidly growing catalogue of recordings. Bronfman's 2011/12 U.S. season began with the Chicago Symphony's opening Gala conducted by Riccardo Muti followed by return engagements to the orchestras in Philadelphia, Toronto, Portland, OR, Kansas City and a residency with the Cleveland Orchestra in Miami, Cleveland and New York focusing on the concerti and chamber music of Brahms. A recital tour in winter culminates with Carnegie Hall followed by the world premiere of Magnus Lindberg's Piano Concerto No. 2 commissioned for him by the New York Philharmonic, with whom he is currently touring the west coast.
