RCO – Philippe Herreweghe & Yefim Bronfman
Yefim Bronfman © Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra
With Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 and Brahms's Symphony No. 2, Philippe Herreweghe is highlighting the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra's most important function since ist founding, namely to perform the best works from the Classical and Romantic periods. Herreweghe joins forces here with star pianist Yefim Bronfman, the Russian-Israeli-American master who is known as a heavyweight, excelling in tumultuous works. Remarkably enough, Bronfman now turns to the subtlest and most tender of piano concertos that Beethoven composed.
