Lindberg - Expo, Piano Concerto No. 2, Al Largo (CD)
Composer: Magnus Lindberg
Release Date: May 28, 2013
Conductor: Alan Gilbert
Artists: Yefim Bronfman
Orchestra: New York Philharmonic
Label: Dacapo

This CD presents the world premiere recordings of three works by Magnus Lindberg premiered by the New York Philharmonic under Music Director Alan Gilbert. The opening work, “EXPO,” was the overture in Gilbert's very first concert as the Philharmonic's new Music Director and Lindberg's first season as their Composer-in-Residence in 2009. The symphonic piece “Al Largo” and the virtuosic “Piano Concerto No. 2” feature Israeli-American pianist Yefim Bronfman.

“EXPO…tingles with a sense of anticipation, while Al largo…is suffused with breathless wonder. But the real treat here is Lindberg’s Piano Concerto No. 2, thanks to yet another brilliant creative partner: Yefim Bronfman wrestles a sensationally virtuosic solo part into submission with playing as musically acute and expressive as it is athletic.” - WQXR
