About the album
Helicon is the label of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, whose chief conductor is Zubin Mehta since 1977.
This disc tells us the story of a musical and human friendship between two great artists: Zubin Mehta and pianist Yefim Bronfman.
The two recordings are made on a 18 years span of time (1991, 2009) and confirm the feeling between the two artists and their common penchant towards the late Romantic music. The two Concertos were composed in 1868 (Saint-Saens) and in 1881 (Brahms).
