Yefim Bronfman with the New York Philharmonic String Quartet at 92Y
Sunday January 20, 2019, 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm$53.00
One of the most revered pianists of our time, Yefim Bronfman’s powerhouse virtuosity is informed by his deep sensitivity. In the words of The New York Times, “Bronfman is a pianist with comprehensive skills who can seemingly play anything.” A dedicated chamber musician in addition to his solo career, Bronfman teams here with long-time friends from the New York Philharmonic in the form of the New York Philharmonic String Quartet, comprised of the orchestra’s principal string players. Their radiant program includes Schumann’s sparkling, exuberant Piano Quintet in E-flat Major, the first piano quintet of the Romantic era, which served as the inspiration for Brahms’ own quintet.
“Yefim Bronfman pushes [the] boundaries of what’s possible on piano. He demonstrated artistic finesse and surprising grace alongside the fabulous, fearsome technique that has made [him] a keyboard legend.”
