Yefim Bronfman, piano
Russian-Israeli-U.S. pianist Yefim Bronfman "comes across first as total conqueror of his instrument. He is the most preternaturally equipped of pianists, a technical monster. And yet," discerns The Philadelphia Inquirer, "he is also deeply involved with emotion. A weight lifter and a poet." "Bronfman remains his impressively granitic self at keyboard. His attacks are ever sharp and startling. He can erupt like no one else," unleashing "torrents of fiery virtuosic ferocity" (Los Angeles Times) while also commanding "a crystalline delicacy and grace" (The Guardian). "His energy emanates from his fingers and swirls out of the piano with such perfection that every note grabs the ear with an expressive, singing quality" (The Washington Post).
