Classical 91.5

On Record with Yefim Bronfman and Ward Stare - 9/13 & 9/15/18

Sep 12, 2018

The great pianist Yefim Bronfman is joining forces with Ward Stare and your Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra to open the new season with two fan favorites and a concerto that Mr. Bronfman calls "a nightmare;" the Roman Carnival Overture by Berlioz, Dvorak's New World Symphony, and Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 2 all set the stage for concerts to come.  

Fima, as his friends call him, took some time off from practicing to stop by with Ward and chat with Julia Figueras about the many challenges in this reconstructed work, his debut with Bernstein, and why he chose to make America his adopted home.
