Simply put, Yefim Bronfman is a beast. The Soviet-born Israeli-American pianist is to the master’s instrument what Muhammad Ali was to boxing: They both float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. And oh, what a sweet float and sting does Bronfman possess. A virtuoso talent, Bronfman’s technical proficiency is matched only by his chameleonlike ability to emotionally become whatever he’s playing. Be it Beethoven, Brahms, Rachmaninoff or Tchaikovsky, Bronfman is one of the few pianists of this or any generation to bring their music to life. On Friday, Jan. 15, the master musician performs Prokofiev’s complete piano sonatas at Camp Concert Hall at the University of Richmond. Doors are at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $20-$40.
