"One of the greatest pianists active today."

The New York Times

Yefim Bronfman, piano

Yefim Bronfman last graced the stages of Cal Performances with a heroic cycle of the complete Prokofiev piano sonatas. Here, he further reveals the emotional breadth of his musical temperament, in works ranging from Schumann's mercurial Humoreske, to Debussy's richly impressionistic Suite bergamasque, and Schubert's late-period gem the Sonata in C minor. "Bronfman combined fire and poetry...his fingers have always burned up the keyboard, but his lyricism has become more remarkable with age" (Seattle Post-Intelligencer).

Humoreske in B-flat Major, Op. 20
Suite bergamasque
Sonata No. 19 in C minor, D. 958
