Yefim Bronfman on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at 7:30pm
One of the world’s most acclaimed pianists, Yefim Bronfman has a career as a concert artist that is matched only by his other accomplishments as a soloist. He debuted at Carnegie Hall in 1989 and Avery Fisher Hall in 1993, having won its prestigious Avery Fisher Prize in 1991. That year, he and violinist Isaac Stern gave a series of joint recitals in Russia in Bronfman’s first public performance there since age 15, when he emigrated with his family from Tashkent to Israel and then to the United States.
Brentano String Quartet
Brentano String Quartet on Friday, February 8, 2019 at 7:30pm
Lamentations, a centuries-spanning compendium of songs and compositions, fulfills an ancient tradition, says Brentano violinist Mark Steinberg, of hiring professional mourners to help create catharsis. Stories within the works can help give form to grief, so that it becomes a distinct entity instead of occupying the bereaved’s whole being. At the Bing, Brentano performs Purcell’s “Dido’s Lament,” Bartók’s Second Quartet, Shostakovich (from his Lady Macbeth of Mtensk), and Haydn’s Seven Last Words.

St. Lawrence String Quartet on Sunday, May 5, 2019 at 2:30pm
The acclaimed St. Lawrence String Quartet, a beloved linchpin of Stanford University and Stanford Live, presents its Sundays with the St. Lawrence series, a matinee array of chamber outings in many modes. In May, it’s all SLSQ, all the time with works by Haydn and Brahms, as well as the West Coast Premiere of a work by Stanford professor Jonathan Berger.
