The Titanic sails again 8:00 P.M. Tuesday, March 26th at the Tryon Fine Arts Center, and our young Steinway piano is perfect for the occasion. Apparently, Yefim Bronfman, entering perhaps his sixties, has been traveling the seven seas for some time giving performances of startling clarity, leaving impressions of unforeseen power and beauty on oceans of music’s literature, past and present.
We will see at last this unassuming pianist for ourselves. He will have been to Cologne, Heidelberg, Rome and St Petersburg just days before. A Russian émigré to Israel at age 14, he studied with the greats, ultimately taking American citizenship and at least one residence in the States.
Word is: this TCA concert may turn out to be for us a marker in time, certainly not anything we would ever lightly miss. See you there!
