Saturday, March 25, 7:30 p.m.
Peter Rubardt, Conductor
Yefim Bronfman, Piano
Sergei Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3
We’ve all had that thrill. We see an extraordinary athlete deliver in the clutch, watch a skilled orator give the speech of her life, and experience a brilliant actor create a breathtaking moment. We know that achievement is born of one-in-a-million talent combined with a lifetime of single-minded hard work. But that’s not what strikes us. What strikes us is that it seems so easy, and that success seems inevitable. Performances like this are a celebration of humanity at its finest.Artists like Arthur Rubinstein, Vladimir Horowitz, and Mstislav Rostropovich—these artists left legacies that have shaped generations of performers. In a landmark event for the PSO, we will be joined by Yefim Bronfman for Rachmaninoff’s towering Third Concerto. Yefim is one of the truly elite pianists of this era, a regular visitor to literally every major orchestra in the world. This concert marks an extraordinary opportunity to witness a soloist of deep historical significance in a performance that is sure to be unforgettable.
