Yefim Bronfman

Internationally known as one of the greatest virtuoso pianists of his time, Yefim Bronfman's repertoire includes works by Tchaikovsky, Béla Bartók, Brahms, Prokofiev, and Mussorgsky. He has performed with several symphonies and orchestras worldwide and continues to perform under legendary conductors. His interests include orchestral as well as chamber music.

Born in Tashkent, Russia, Yefim Bronfman went to Israel in 1943 before eventually becoming an American citizen. He received his musical instruction at Juilliard under the guides of Rudolf Serkin, William Masselos, and Leon Fleisher. At the age of 15 he made his professional debut with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. While touring with the orchestra, he had the chance to work with such well-known conductors as Leonard Bernstein and Zubin Mehta. Under the direction of such legendary conductors, Bronfman's career rose rapidly.

During the '80s, Bronfman made a run of debuts. In 1981 he performed in Washington at the Kennedy Center. He made his Chicago debut with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in 1984 and with the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra in 1985. A big year for Yefim Bronfman was 1989. That was the year he became an American citizen and also debuted with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and at Carnegie Hall. Soon after he signed an exclusive contract with the Sony Classical label.

Under the Sony label, Bronfman recorded the Prokofiev sonatas. With Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic he recorded five piano concertos. Other musicians he has recorded with include Esa-Pekka Salonen and Gary Hoffman. He recorded the Mozart violin sonatas, the Brahms violin sonatas, and the Bartók violin sonatas with friend and violinist Isaac Stern.

During the '90s, Bronfman's appearances were mainly in Europe except for a few performances in the United States and the former Soviet Union. Bronfman made his debut performance at the Salzburg Music Festival in 1994 and also performed at the Verbier Festival. Another first was his nationally televised concert in Germany with Bayerische Rundfunk and Maazel in 1995. For the 1997-1998 season, Bronfman scheduled performances with the Stockholm Chamber Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, and the Madrid Symphony Orchestra. In Germany performed with the St. Petersburg Philharmonic and the Termirkanov.

Yefim Bronfman's career has spanned decades and continues to include performances with numerous symphonies and orchestras worldwide while adding to the classical repertoire. His musical genius has not gone unnoticed, as he is a recipient of the Avery Fisher Prize. ~ Kim Summers
