Daniil Trifonov by Dario Acosta

Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov — Gramophone’s 2016 Artist of the Year — is a solo artist, champion of the concerto repertoire, collaborator in chamber music and song, and composer. In 2018 he won his first Grammy Award: Best Instrumental Solo Album for Transcendental, a double album of works by Liszt and his third title as an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon (DG) artist.

Mr. Trifonov launches the New York Philharmonic’s 2018–19 season and the tenure of Music Director Jaap van Zweden with Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major for the Opening Gala Concert, and Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto for the opening subscription program. He revisits the Ravel on tour with the London Symphony Orchestra and Simon Rattle, and during a residency at Vienna’s Musikverein, where he also gives the Austrian Premiere of his own Piano Concerto. The Emperor is also the vehicle for collaborations with the London Symphony, National Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Symphony, and The Cleveland Orchestra, with which he embarks on a tour of Asia.

During a season-long residency with the Berlin Philharmonic, Mr. Trifonov plays Scriabin’s Piano Concerto under Andris Nelsons. Other highlights include a return to Carnegie Hall for Schumann’s Piano Concerto with longtime collaborator Valery Gergiev and the MET Orchestra, Prokofiev’s Third Piano Concerto with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. On his upcoming DG release, Destination Rachmaninov: Departure, he performs the Second and Fourth Piano Concertos with The Philadelphia Orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin, his partners on 2015’s Rachmaninov: Variations.

In recital this season, Mr. Trifonov plays Beethoven, Schumann, and Prokofiev at Carnegie and in Berlin, where his Berlin Philharmonic residency features multiple solo and chamber performances. These include accounts of his own Piano Quintet, of which he also gives the Cincinnati Premiere with the Ariel Quartet. In Berlin and at 92nd Street Y, he plays duo recitals with his frequent partner, baritone Matthias Goerne.
