Grammy-winning pianist Yefim Bronfman is one of the true superstars of the classical-music world. In fact, the Russian-Israeli’s commanding presence at the keys earned him a mention in Philip Roth’s acclaimed novel The Human Stain, where he was described as looking “less like the person who is going to play the piano than like the guy who should be moving it. … When he’s finished, I thought, they’ll have to throw the thing out. He crushes it. He doesn’t let that piano conceal a thing.” The man known as “Fima” regularly appears with the world’s major symphonies, including the Vienna, New York and Los Angeles Philharmonics, among many more, and is equally devoted to new music as he is to his beloved Russian romantic composers.
