Join us for this very special concert of the Los Angeles Philharmonic in the beautiful Walt Disney Concert Hall. Experience a dynamo play the quintessential Romantic piano concerto. Trifonov has the reputation of taking a beloved classic like Tchaikovsky’s popular Piano Concerto and imbuing it with fresh new life. L.A. favorite Michael Tilson Thomas also leads Copland’s Third Symphony, built on the composer’s stirring Fanfare for the Common Man. Includes time for a no-host lunch at one of Disney Hall’s several restaurants, along with a pre-concert lecture at Disney Concert Hall.
Conductor Michael Tilson Thomas is music director of the San Francisco Symphony, co-founder and artistic director of the New World Symphony and conductor laureate of the London Symphony Orchestra. Winner of 11 Grammys, he was also awarded the National Medal of Arts and was recently inducted into the California Hall of Fame and the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov has made a spectacular ascent in the world of classical music since winning first prize at both the Tchaikovsky and Rubinstein competitions in 2011 at the age of 20. Combining consummate technique with rare sensitivity and depth, his performances are a perpetual source of awe.
