Yefim Bronfman, piano

Internationally recognized as one of today’s most acclaimed and admired pianists, Yefim Bronfman stands among a handful of artists regularly sought by festivals, orchestras, conductors, and recital series. His commanding technique, power and exceptional lyrical gifts are consistently acknowledged by the press and audiences alike. Following summer festival appearances in Verbier and Salzburg and on tour with mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kozena, his 2022/2023 season began with the opening week of the Chicago Symphony followed by return visits to New York Philharmonic, Pittsburgh, Houston, Philadelphia, New World, Pacific, Madison, New Jersey, Toronto and Montreal symphonies. In Europe he will tour with Rotterdam Philharmonic and can also be heard with Berlin Philharmonic, Bayerischer Rundfunk (Munich), Bamberg, Dresden Staatskapelle, Maggio Fiorentino and Zurich Opera orchestras. Born in Tashkent in the Soviet Union, Mr. Bronfman immigrated to Israel with his family in 1973, where he studied with pianist Arie Vardi, head of the Rubin Academy of Music at Tel Aviv University. In the U.S. he studied at The Juilliard School, Marlboro School of Music, and the Curtis Institute, under Rudolf Firkusny, Leon Fleisher, and Rudolf Serkin. A recipient of the prestigious Avery Fisher Prize, one of the highest honors given to American instrumentalists, in 2010 he was further honored as the recipient of the Jean Gimbel Lane prize in piano performance from Northwestern University and in 2015 with an honorary doctorate from the Manhattan School of Music. 


The Concord Chamber Music Society, Inc. (CCMS) was founded by Boston Symphony Orchestra violinist Wendy Putnam in January of 2000. CCMS presents a series of four chamber music concerts per year in Concord, Massachusetts. Performances have included such artists and ensembles as the Juilliard, Borromeo and Muir Quartets, the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Piano Trio, Triple Helix, violinist Gil Shaham, and pianists Yefim Bronfman, Menahem Pressler, Jonathan Biss, and Peter Serkin. Concerts also regularly feature our resident musicians, the Concord Chamber Players, which includes members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and acclaimed chamber ensembles.
