Yefim Bronfman and the New York Philharmonic String Quartet
A dedicated chamber musician in addition to his solo career, “Bronfman is a pianist with comprehensive skills who can seemingly play anything” (The New York Times). This exquisite concert sees Bronfman performing with the New York Philharmonic String Quartet, 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.” The Seattle Times
