NYP String Quartet

The New York Philharmonic String Quartet comprises four Principal musicians from the Orchestra: Concertmaster Frank Huang (The Charles E. Culpeper Chair); Principal Associate Concertmaster Sheryl Staples (The Elizabeth G. Beinecke Chair); Principal Viola Cynthia Phelps (The Mr. and Mrs. Frederick P. Rose Chair); and Principal Cello Carter Brey (The Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Chair). The group was formed in January 2017, during the Philharmonic’s 175th anniversary season, and made its debut as the solo ensemble in John Adams’s Absolute Jest in New York in March 2017, reprising the work on the Orchestra’s 2017 European tour. The quartet has since appeared at the Montreal Chamber Music Festival, at Charlotte Concerts, and in a tour of South Korea. In the 2018–19 season the ensemble makes its debut in Houston, San Francisco, and Miami. All four members are multiple prize winners, have appeared as concerto soloists with the Philharmonic and orchestras around the world, and have appeared frequently in the Philharmonic’s chamber music series at David Geffen Hall and Merkin Hall.

Frank Huang has performed at the Marlboro Music Festival, Ravinia’s Steans Institute, Seattle Chamber Music Festival, and Caramoor. He frequently participates in Musicians from Marlboro’s tours, and was selected by The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center to be a member of the prestigious CMS Two program. Before joining the Houston Symphony as concertmaster in 2010, Frank Huang held the position of first violinist of the Grammy Award–winning Ying Quartet.

Sheryl Staples has performed chamber music for U.S. Ambassadors in London, Paris, Berlin, Beijing, and Hong Kong. She toured Mexico, Brazil, and Chile in 2013, and she has appeared at summer festivals including La Jolla Music Society’s SummerFest, Boston Chamber Music Society, Salt Bay Chamberfest, and the chamber music festivals of Santa Fe, Mainly Mozart, Seattle, Aspen, Sarasota, Martha’s Vineyard, Strings Music Festival, and Brightstar. She appears on three Stereophile CDs with the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival.

Cynthia Phelps performs with The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Jupiter Chamber Players, and the Santa Fe, La Jolla, Seattle, Chamber Music Northwest, and Bridgehampton festivals. She has appeared with the Guarneri, Tokyo, Orion, American, Brentano, and Prague Quartets, and the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio. She is also a founding member of the chamber group Les Amies, a flute-harp-viola group with Philharmonic Principal Harp Nancy Allen and flutist Carol Wincenc.

Carter Brey has made regular appearances with the Tokyo and Emerson string quartets, The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and at festivals such as Spoleto (both in the United States and Italy) and the Santa Fe and La Jolla Chamber Music festivals. He and pianist Christopher O’Riley recorded Le Grand Tango: Music of Latin America, a disc of compositions from South America and Mexico released on Helicon Records.

Daniil Trifonov by Dario Acosta

Piano

Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov has been named The Mary and James G. Wallach Artist-in-Residence for the 2019–20 season. His activities reflect his many talents: champion of the concerto repertoire, with performances of works by Scriabin and Mozart in New York and on tour; solo artist, with a recital at Alice Tully Hall; and collaborator in chamber music and composer, with a performance with the New York Philharmonic String Quartet of his Piano Quintet at 92nd Street Y, the work’s New York Premiere.

Mr. Trifonov was named Musical America’s Artist of the Year of 2019 and Gramophone’s Artist of the Year in 2016. 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 launched the New York Philharmonic’s 2018–19 season and Jaap van Zweden’s tenure as Music Director with Ravel’s Concerto in G for the Opening Gala Concert, and Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto in 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 appears with the Vienna Philharmonic and gives the Austrian premiere of his own Piano Concerto. He also performs the Emperor with the London, National, and Cincinnati symphony orchestras, as well as The Cleveland Orchestra, with which he embarks on a tour of Asia.

During a season-long residency with the Berlin Philharmonic, Daniil Trifonov plays Scriabin’s concerto with Andris Nelsons. Other highlights include returns to Carnegie Hall with longtime collaborator Valery Gergiev and the MET Orchestra, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and 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 concertos by 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.

The Philharmonic’s relationship with Daniil Trifonov began with his critically acclaimed Philharmonic debut in 2012 at the age of 21. In November 2015 he was the featured soloist in Rachmaninoff: A Philharmonic Festival and subsequently joined the Philharmonic Board of Directors.
