Just got this email from the Los Angeles Philharmonic:
Yefim Bronfman, who was scheduled to play with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at Walt Disney Concert Hall October 13th, 14th and 15th, has fractured a finger and been forced to withdraw from these performances.
Bartók’s Piano Concerto No. 3 will be replaced by Suite No. 2 from Daphnis and Chloe by Ravel. The remainder of the program remains unchanged.
Bummer for me and all other fans of Fima who were looking forward to seeing/hearing him play this weekend. HUGE bummer for the great pianist himself. Let’s pray that it isn’t serious and that he recovers quickly.
