SEASON FINALE WITH ZHANG & BRONFMAN
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.
