Today's Midday Music features pianist Yefim Bronfman in chamber music of Schubert and Reinecke. (If you think he only plays that well on disc, join us as Yefim Bronfman makes highly musical mincemeat of Prokofiev's Second Piano Concerto in concert with the Atlanta Symphony; Robert Spano conducts Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff, too, when The ASO on GPB next airs, May 15 at 8 p.m. and May 18 at 10 p.m.)
