In EL and Kalamazoo, Yefim Bronfman showcases two sides of the piano

Sep 13, 2016

The great pianist Yefim Bronfman is making appearances this weekend in Michigan, first with the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra playing Tchaikovsky on Friday, then on Sunday, a solo piano performance at the Wharton Center. We ask him about maneuvering that split personality.


Yefim Bronfman, one of the world’s greatest living pianists comes to mid-Michigan this weekend. Current State’s Jamie Paisley was able to speak with him last week about a couple of appearances he’ll be making.

Bronfman performs a solo piano recital at the Wharton Center on Sunday, but before that on Friday, he’s performing with the Kalamazoo Symphony under Maestro Raymond Harvey, playing a Piano Concerto by Tchaikovsky.
