This fall, pianist Daniil Trifonov – recently named 2017 ECHO Klassik Award Recipient – makes concert appearances in Europe and Asia.
In September, Trifonov returns to Europe for performances at the Lucerne Festival, Musikfest Bremen, and with the Munich Philharmonic. In Lucerne, Trifonov is part of an ambitious program that spotlights the five Prokofiev piano concertos, taking the stage with conductor Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra. At the Musikfest Bremen, Trifonov reunites with baritone Matthias Goerne on September 4. Trifonov reunites with Gergiev, appearing alongside the Munich Philharmonic, for Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto in Grafenegg, Austria on September 7 and Bucharest, Romania on September 9.
Trifonov travels to Tokyo to perform Prokofiev’s Second Piano Concerto with the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra from September 16-18. He then makes recital appearances through the end of September in Beijing, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, and Shanghai, spotlighting Chopin’s music alongside works inspired by the composer.
October sees Trifonov return to Europe armed with his Chopin recital repertoire, which he brings to Spain’s Teatro Principal in Alicante (Oct 2) and L’Auditori Barcelona (Oct 4), Italy’s Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi in Milan (Oct 17) and Turin (Oct 18), and Luxembourg’s Philharmonie (Oct 21). In Madrid, he performs Rueda and Strauss with the Spanish National Orchestra from October 6-8.
In Munich, Trifonov joins Mariss Jansons and the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks in an all-Strauss program. Together, they perform the Burlesque for Piano and Orchestra on October 12 & 13.
