La Jolla Music Society presents virtuoso pianist Dec. 14


La Jolla Music Society continues the Season’s Frieman Family Piano Series with Yefim Bronfman at the MCASD Sherwood Auditorium on Friday, Dec. 14, at 8 p.m.

Bronfman is widely regarded as one of the most talented virtuoso pianists performing today. Whether for his solo recitals, his prestigious orchestral engagements or his rapidly growing catalogue of recordings, Bronfman’s commanding technique and exceptional lyrical gifts have won him consistent critical acclaim and enthusiastic audiences worldwide. His La Jolla Music Society program will feature works by Haydn, Brahms and Prokofiev.

La Jolla Music Society enhances the concert-going experience by presenting “Preludes” – pre-concert chats and performances – prior to each performance. Steven Cassedy, professor of Literature and Associate Dean of Graduate Studies at UC San Diego as well as a classically trained pianist, will deliver a pre-concert lecture, “The Sonata: From Start-up to Overdrive,” at 7 p.m.

Concert tickets are $25-$75 and are available through the La Jolla Music Society box office, (858) 459-3728 and online at
