SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. -- Grammy Award-winning pianist Yefim Bronfman will perform at Kusel Auditorium in Sleepy Hollow at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 7.
The universally acclaimed artist will present a unique program of two demanding works by Robert Schuman and four of Serge Prokofiev’s piano sonatas.
Soviet-born Bronfman is among the most talented virtuosos performing today. His commanding technique and exceptional lyrical gifts have won consistent critical acclaim and enthusiastic audiences worldwide for his solo recitals, prestigious orchestral engagements and expanding catalogue of recordings.
In his earlier years, Bronfman trained at the Juilliard School, Marlboro and Curtis Institute and studied with Rudolf Serkin and Leon Fleisher. He was the protégé of Isaac Stern and roomed with Yo-Yo Ma. In 1991, he was awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Prize.
The concert is hosted by Friends of Music Concerts Inc., which is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that for 62 continuous seasons has brought the finest chamber music to Westchester County audiences. In an annual six-concert series, it showcases both world-renowned ensembles and distinguished younger artists who illustrate the diversity and fine quality of chamber music today.
