Yefim Bronfman

During the season 2012/2013 Yefim Bronfman was “Artist in Residence” at the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. in November 2017 he accompanies the orchestra on his European tour and plays the piano concerto No. 4 by Ludwig van Beethoven on three evenings in Lugano, London and Vienna. We talked to him about this piece.

The first stop of our European tour in Lugano is also associated with a premiere: we played for the first time in the local cultural center “LAC Lugano Arte e Cultura”, which opened in September 2014. The new concert hall has 1000 seats.
