Yefim Bronfman, one of the world’s greatest pianists, performs all five of Beethoven’s great Piano Concertos in The Beethoven Cycle, over two very special concert weekends in Masterworks Gold and Diamond. Maestro Bramwell Tovey conducts.

Yefim Bronfman is this year’s Cherniavsky Laureate, and his appearance supported by a fund created by the Gudewill Family in honour of their mother, Mrs. Janey Gudewill, uncle, Mr. Peter Cherniavsky, grandfather, pianist Jan Cherniavksy, who performed as soloist with the VSO on numerous occasions, and great grandmother, Mrs. B.T. Rogers, who co-founded the Vancouver Symphony Society in 1919. In 1967 Jan Cherniavsky founded the Cherniavsky Junior Club for the Performing Arts, an endowment to funds costs associated with children’s concerts, which helped almost 9,000 children attend concerts throughout British Columbia last year.
