Conductor

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

Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov received acclaim when he won First Prize at both the Tchaikovsky and Rubinstein Competitions in 2011 at the age of 20. The 2016–17 season brings the release of Transcendental, a double album that represents Mr. Trifonov’s third title as an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist, and is the first time that Liszt’s complete concert études have been recorded for the label. Winner of Gramophone’s 2016 Artist of the Year award, his upcoming performances include Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto with Riccardo Muti in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s 125th anniversary gala finale. Having scored his second Grammy Award nomination with Rachmaninoff Variations, he performs Rachmaninoff in his Berlin Philharmonic debut led by Simon Rattle at the orchestra’s New Year’s Eve concerts, scheduled to air live in cinemas throughout Europe. Mr. Trifonov also performs Rachmaninoff in his debuts with the Melbourne and Sydney Symphony Orchestras, returns to the Los Angeles Philharmonic with Gustavo Dudamel and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, and appears in the Munich Philharmonic’s Rachmaninoff Cycle tour with longtime collaborator Valery Gergiev. He is performing Mozart with the New York Philharmonic, Cleveland, and Philadelphia orchestras, and with the Dresden Staatskapelle at home and at the Salzburg Easter Festival and London’s BBC Proms. Other engagements include Zurich’s Tonhalle Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Mahler Chamber Orchestra on tour, Houston Symphony, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, and the Filarmonica della Scala on tour with Riccardo Chailly. An accomplished composer, Mr. Trifonov reprises his own concerto in Kansas City. Recital engagements include debuts at London’s Barbican and Melbourne’s Recital Centre and appearances in Berlin, Vienna, Florence, Madrid, Oslo, Moscow, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and — for the fourth consecutive year — New York’s Carnegie Hall. He gives duo recitals with his former teacher, pianist Sergei Babayan, in Princeton and Sarasota, and will return to the Tanglewood, Verbier, Baden-Baden, and Salzburg festivals. Mr. Trifonov’s honors include Third Prize in Warsaw’s Chopin Competition, First Prize in Tel Aviv’s Rubinstein Competition, and both First Prize and Grand Prix in Moscow’s Tchaikovsky Competition, all in the 2010–11 season, and Franco Abbiati Prize for Best Instrumental Soloist (2013).
