About the show

Internationally recognized as one of today’s most acclaimed and admired pianists, Yefim Bronfman is the ideal artist to launch the Lauridsen Great Pianists Series. Thanks to the generosity of Virginia and Nix Lauridsen, each season CMA will present a recital featuring one of the world’s most accomplished pianists. This new annual concert will continue the legacy of world-class pianists at CMA, beginning with Sergei Rachmaninoff in 1932.
