    “There’s this special moment when you truly feel the music and we all become one connected whole”, as Daniil Trifonov says enthusiastically in an interview for the Digital Concert Hall. Here he performs Sergei Prokofiev’s youthful and exuberant Piano Concerto No. 1 with Kirill Petrenko. Also on the programme: a world premiere by the Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdóttir, plus Josef Suk’s tone poem A Summer’s Tale, which combines Bohemian flavouring with shimmering Impressionism.

    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).

    Alexander Scriabin’s Piano Concerto is a work that is performed with surprising infrequency. During this concert you can discover the work for yourself: its drama and passion, its boundless wealth of emotional nuances. The soloist is Daniil Trifonov, “perhaps the most exciting pianist to have emerged internationally in the last 30 years” (The Guardian). Andris Nelsons also conducts Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 11, which impresses listeners with the vividness of a film score.

    “He has everything and more, there is tenderness and also the demonic element. I never heard anything like that,” was how Martha Argerich expressed her astonishment at Daniil Trifonov, the Berliner Philharmoniker’s Artist in Residence this season. He can now be heard in a solo recital in the Philharmonie. With works by Schumann, Prokofiev and Rachmaninov he travels through the almost one and a half centuries when piano music flourished.

    In this concert, Mariss Jansons, a celebrated interpreter of the Romantic repertoire, reveals the entire musical and emotional range of this epoch. On the one hand, the wild virtuosity of Schumann’s rapturous Piano Concerto, on the other, the deeply religious grandeur of Bruckner’s Sixth Symphony. The piano soloist is Daniil Trifonov, who combines sensational technique with sensitivity and maturity of expression.

    The London Times described Daniil Trifonov as “the most amazing young pianist of our time” when he presented his first Rachmaninov recording. On New Year’s Eve 2016, Trifonov played the composer’s Piano Concerto No. 3, regarded by many as the most difficult piano concerto of all time. Simon Rattle also presents Antonín Dvořák’s virtuoso Slavonic Dances and enters the world of British humour with orchestral pieces from William Walton’s Façade.
