SEASON FINALE WITH ZHANG & BRONFMAN

2016–17 Season

XIAN ZHANG conductor
YEFIM BRONFMAN piano
NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Two stellar artists close the season: Xian Zhang joins forces with pianist Yefim Bronfman, described by the Chicago Tribune as “a marvel of digital dexterity, warmly romantic sentiment and jaw-dropping bravura.” 

  • BRAHMS Piano Concerto No. 2
    Brilliant, unequaled. It was the last of his own piano compositions that Brahms would perform in public.

  • SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony No. 5
    At the premiere of this spellbinding, transcendent work, the composer received an ovation lasting longer than half an hour.
