InterviewKirill Petrenko in conversation with Olaf Maninger
Concert with Kirill Petrenko and Daniil Trifonov
In this concert, Daniil Trifonov presents himself for the first time with the Berliner Philharmoniker as a Beethoven interpreter – with the Third Piano Concerto, whose charm lies in the alternation of heroic gesture and dreamlike contemplation. At the same time, it is a musical homage to Mozart, who Beethoven greatly admired. Mendelssohn’s First Symphony, which he wrote at the age of 15, was also inspired by Mozart. An early work, yet it points to the style of the mature composer. “It sounds so wonderfully pithy and light, that the sudden glimpses of another, hidden world really do surprise” (Der Tagesspiegel).
