Can music change your life? World-renowned pianist Yefim Bronfman returns to the Adrienne Arsht Center with the New World Symphony Fellows and Robert Spano, celebrated Music Director of the Atlanta Symphony. Mr. Bronfman calls Ludwig van Beethovens piano concertos the foundation of [pianists] existence. Reflect on Bronfmans words as Beethoven sheds the cheery brightness of his first two piano concertos to embrace the moody minor-key emotionalism in his third. Oppressed under Stalins regime, Dmitri Shostakovich was under intense scrutiny and political pressure when writing his Fifth Symphony. Bathed in controversy, the powerful, warhorse symphony fuses tragedy, mourning and a superficial optimism, giving voice to a forbidden language.
