ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Showstopping! Indisputably one of the greatest classical musicians in the world today, Grammy Award-winner Yefim Bronfman returns for Prokofiev’s scintillating concerto, a virtuosic whirlwind absolutely guaranteed to bring down the house. A program of Russian masterworks also spotlights Shostakovich’s spirited, slapstick Ninth and Prokofiev’s effervescent Classical throwback, a showpiece for the Houston Symphony’s virtuosity.

Pre-Concert Activities: Attend the Prelude pre-concert discussion, held 45 minutes prior to each Classical concert. Prelude is led by our Musical Ambassador Carlos Andrés Botero, and sometimes features guest artists or orchestra members.
