Yefim Bronfman - Artist in Residence 19-20
In engaging the Grammy-winning Yefim Bronfman as their Artist in Residence for the 2019–20 season, the Wiener Symphoniker have, without a doubt, scored another artistic coup.
Seven concerts and four programmes
make up the 2019–20 residency with the Symphoniker of this „force of nature“, born in 1958 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, and whose teachers included Rudolf Serkin and Leon Fleisher. With Philippe Jordan he performs Brahms’ First Piano Concerto. Only a few days later he plays the same composer’s Second Piano Concerto with the orchestra’s Principal Guest Conductor, Lahav Shani; Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto follows later in the season.
Philippe Jordan again takes the podium for the final concert of the resi- dency: Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 24 in c minor KV 491 at the Lucerne Festival in August 2020.
