“His sound was steely in the aggressive outbursts yet tender in wistfully lyrical moments.” –New York Times
Widely praised for his solo, chamber, and orchestral recordings, Yefim Bronfman 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 Bartók Piano Concerti. Bronfman collaborates with an illustrious group of conductors including Daniel Barenboim, Gustavo Dudamel, and Riccardo Muti. Summer engagements have regularly taken him to the major festivals of Europe and the US. As 2021/22 Artist-in-Residence with Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, his season began on tour with the orchestra in Europe and concluded with the world premiere of a concerto commissioned for him from Elena Firsova. This fall takes Bronfman to both Italy and Germany as he performs in recital with mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kozena.
