Brahms: Double Concerto
Brahms: Piano Concerto No. 2
Pinchas Zukerman, conductor
Yefim Bronfman, piano
Amanda Forsyth, cello
Pinchas Zukerman makes his final Toronto appearance as Music Director of the National Arts Centre Orchestra. The hearty programme presents two Brahms concertos, the first featuring the soloists Zukerman and Principal Cello of the NAC Orchestra, Amanda Forsyth, and the second the remarkable pianist, Yefim Bronfman.
Zukerman was born in Tel Aviv where he began his music studies before moving stateside to study at The Juilliard School. Bronfman, born in the Soviet Union, moved to Israel in 1973, where he studied at the Rubin Academy of Music at Tel Aviv University before going on to The Juilliard School. Both of these amazing musicians—and lifelong friends—are past recipients of America-Israel Cultural Foundation scholarships.
