Our Artist-in-Residence and Grammy Award-winner Daniil Trifonov (lauded by The New York Times for his “incandescence”) plays Scriabin’s jewel of a Piano Concerto — rhapsodic, poetic, and colorful. Jaap van Zweden then conducts Tchaikovsky’s emotionally charged Fifth, with glorious melodies that never cease to thrill.

Conductor Jaap van Zweden has become an international presence on three continents over the past decade. The 2018–19 season marks his first as the 26th Music Director of the New York Philharmonic. In the 2019–20 season he and the Philharmonic celebrate the ratification of the 19th Amendment with commissions by 19 women composers in Project 19, illuminate three hotbeds of music innovation — Berlin, Reykjavík, and New York — in the hotspots festival, and explore Mahler’s New York. He continues as Music Director of the Hong Kong Philharmonic, a post he has held since 2012. Guest engagements this season include the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Munich Philharmonic, Orchestre de Paris, San Francisco Symphony, and Dallas Symphony Orchestra, where he is Conductor Laureate. He has appeared as guest conductor with many other leading orchestras around the globe, among them the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, The Cleveland Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Vienna Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmonic, Orchestre national de France, and London Symphony Orchestra.

In his inaugural season as Music Director of the New York Philharmonic, Jaap van Zweden conducts repertoire ranging from five World Premieres to symphonic cornerstones. He presides over three season pillars — each presenting a World Premiere — that contextualize music through programs complemented by citywide collaborations. Music of Conscience explores composers’ responses to the social issues of their time, with music by Beethoven, Shostakovich, John Corigliano, and David Lang. New York Stories: Threads of Our City looks at musical expressions of the immigrant experience in New York, with music by Julia Wolfe. The Art of Andriessen spotlights the music of Dutch composer Louis Andriessen. Maestro van Zweden also welcomes New Yorkers to Phil the Hall, concerts for community and service professionals; the Annual Free Memorial Day Concert; and the Concerts in the Parks, Presented by Didi and Oscar Schafer.

Jaap van Zweden has made numerous acclaimed recordings, the most recent of which features live New York Philharmonic performances of Beethoven’s Symphonies Nos. 5 and 7, released on CD and for streaming and download in February 2018; this release launched the Philharmonic’s partnership with Decca Gold, Universal Music Group’s newly established U.S. classical music label. In 2018 he completed a four-year project with the Hong Kong Philharmonic, conducting the first-ever performances in Hong Kong of Wagner’s Ring Cycle, which have been recorded and released on Naxos Records. His highly praised performances of Lohengrin, Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, and Parsifal — the last of which earned him the prestigious Edison Award for Best Opera Recording in 2012 — are available on CD and DVD.

Born in Amsterdam, Jaap van Zweden was appointed at age 19 as the youngest-ever concertmaster of Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. He began his conducting career almost 20 years later, in 1996. He remains Honorary Chief Conductor of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, where he was Chief Conductor from 2005 to 2013, and served as Chief Conductor of the Royal Flanders Orchestra from 2008 to 2011. Jaap van Zweden was named Musical America’s 2012 Conductor of the Year in recognition of his critically acclaimed work as Music Director of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and as guest conductor with the most prestigious U.S. orchestras.

In 1997 Jaap van Zweden and his wife, Aaltje, established the Papageno Foundation to support families of children with autism. The Foundation has grown into a multifaceted organization that focuses on the development of children and young adults with autism. The Foundation provides in-home music therapy through a national network of qualified music therapists in The Netherlands; opened the Papageno House in 2015 (with Her Majesty Queen Maxima in attendance) for young adults with autism to live, work, and participate in the community; created a research center at the Papageno House for early diagnosis and treatment of autism and for analyzing the effects of music therapy on autism; develops funding opportunities to support autism programs; and, most recently, launched the app TEAMPapageno, which allows children with autism to communicate with each other through music composition.

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.
