About NSO: Yefim Bronfman plays Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 2 | Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony
Dima Slobodeniouk, conductor
Yefim Bronfman, piano
Johannes Brahms: Piano Concerto No. 2
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 4
Brahms called his Piano Concerto No. 2 “a tiny little piano concerto with a wisp of a scherzo,” but it is considered one of the most expansive and ambitious compositions for piano. Grammy®–winning virtuoso Yefim Bronfman more than masters the challenge with a “marvel of digital dexterity, warmly romantic sentiment, and jaw-dropping bravura” (Chicago Tribune).
Fanfares of fate follow as Dima Slobodeniouk conducts Tchaikovsky’s explosive Symphony No. 4—an evolution of wistful poetry to optimism and ultimately, renewed love of life.
