Chief Conductor of the BBC Philharmonic, Juanjo Mena is one of Spain’s most distinguished international conductors. Following his New York Philharmonic debut last season and recent appearances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Montreal and Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestras, and The Cleveland Orchestra, Mr. Mena’s North American 2015–16 season includes return visits to New York, Baltimore, Boston, Toronto, and Cincinnati. His worldwide highlights include his debut with the Berlin Philharmonic and a tour of China and South Korea with the BBC Philharmonic, as well as return visits to the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Oslo and Bergen Philharmonic orchestras, Spanish National Orchestra, and Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra. As a guest of international festivals, Mr. Mena has appeared at the Hollywood Bowl, Grant Park (Chicago), Tanglewood, La Folle Journée (Nantes), and the Stars of White Nights Festival in St. Petersburg, Russia. He recently led the BBC Philharmonic on two tours of Europe and Spain — including performances in Cologne, Frankfurt, Munich, Vienna, and Madrid — and performs with them every year at the BBC Proms in London. Juanjo Mena has worked with orchestras throughout Europe, such as the Orchestre National de France, Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, Oslo Philharmonic, Filarmonica della Scala, Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI, Munich Radio Orchestra, Dresden Philharmonic, Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Danish National Symphony Orchestra, and Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as with all the major orchestras in Spain. His operatic work includes Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman, Bartók’s Bluebeard’s Castle, Schoenberg’s Erwartung, Richard Strauss’s Salome, Elektra, and Ariadne auf Naxos, and productions including Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin in Genoa, Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro in Lausanne, and Britten’s Billy Budd in Bilbao. He has made several recordings with the BBC Philharmonic, including discs of works by Manuel de Falla (named BBC Music Magazine Recording of the Month) and Gabriel Pierné (Gramophone Editor’s Choice), and acclaimed recent releases of music by Montsalvatge, Weber, and Turina. He has also recorded a collection of Basque symphonic music with the Bilbao Symphony Orchestra for Naxos, and a critically acclaimed recording of Messiaen’s Turangalîla-symphonie for Hyperion with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra. Juanjo Mena made his New York Philharmonic debut in December 2014–January 2015 leading works by Rimsky-Korsakov, Debussy, and Tchaikovsky, as well as Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with Daniil Trifonov as soloist.

Danill Trifonov by Vadim Shults

Piano

Combining consummate technique with rare sensitivity, Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov has made a spectacular ascent to classical stardom. Since taking First Prize at both the Tchaikovsky and Rubinstein competitions in 2011 at the age of 20, he has appeared with most of the world’s foremost orchestras and given solo recitals at many of its most prestigious venues.

Following the August release of the Grammy-nominated Rachmaninov Variations, recorded for Deutsche Grammophon with The Philadelphia Orchestra, in the 2015–16 season Mr. Trifonov is spotlighted in both the New York Philharmonic’s Rachmaninoff: A Philharmonic Festival and the Philharmonia Orchestra’s Rachmaninov Piano Concerto Cycle. He also plays Rachmaninoff concertos in debuts with the Berlin Staatskapelle and Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, and in dates with The Philadelphia Orchestra, Munich Philharmonic, and Orchestre National de Lyon. He is performing Prokofiev in his Montreal Symphony debut on a North American tour, and for returns to the Orchestre National de France and London Symphony Orchestra. He plays Chopin with the San Francisco Symphony and Liszt with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra at home and on a North European tour. An accomplished composer, Mr. Trifonov reprises his own acclaimed piano concerto with the Pittsburgh Symphony. In addition to making his Los Angeles recital debut, he undertakes a European recital tour and residencies in Lugano, Switzerland, and at London’s Wigmore Hall, where he collaborates with pianist Sergei Babayan and violinist Gidon Kremer.

Last season saw the release of Trifonov: The Carnegie Recital, the pianist’s first recording as an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist, which scored a Grammy nomination and an ECHO Klassik Award. His discography also features a Chopin album for Decca and Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra.

Born in Nizhny Novgorod in 1991, Daniil Trifonov studied at Moscow’s Gnessin School of Music and the Cleveland Institute of Music. In 2013 he won Italy’s Franco Abbiati Prize for Best Instrumental Soloist.
