Yefim Bronfman is widely regarded as one of the most talented virtuoso pianists performing today. Born in Russia, he emigrated to Israel at age 14. He “bucks the stereotype of the Russian soloist as merely a technical wizard of large sound and emphatic personality. He has technique to burn, but he also has a chameleon-like ability to subsume himself in the music.” (The New York Times) Returning for the first time since his UMS debut in 1994, Bronfman is joined by the great American pianist Emanuel Ax, renowned not only for his poetic temperament and unsurpassed virtuosity but also for the exceptional breadth of his performing activity. The Chicago Tribune called their 2002 recording of Rachmaninoff’s rarely recorded piano duos “a marvel of digital dexterity, warmly romantic sentiment, and jaw-dropping bravura.”
