Bronfman Plays Bartók, Plus Mozart's Jupiter


DANIEL KELLOGG Water Music (World Premiere)
BARTÓK Piano Concerto No. 2
W.A. MOZART Symphony No. 41, “Jupiter”

We present the second of the Kansas City Symphony’s world premieres this season with Daniel Kellogg’s new work celebrating our City of Fountains, and Mozart’s glorious final symphony, on of the most exquisite works ever penned. Promethian pianist Yefim Bronfman returns for a work that has won him great acclaim, Bartók’s Piano concerto No. 2. Bronfman defines virtuosity and musicianship. Critics have described Bronfman’s playing as “exquisite” and described “a finely spun whir of notes that verged on the unbelievable.” (Los Angeles Times)

Please join us an hour before the performance for Concert Comments with Music Director Michael Stern and Associate Conductor Steven Jarvi
