#mediciverbier10 – Daniil Trifonov was described by The Times (UK) as “without question the most astounding young pianist of our age”. He is also a gifted composer and in this concert gives the European premiere of his own Piano Concerto with conductor Gábor Takács-Nagy and the Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra.
The concert begins with Shostakovich’s Suite from Hamlet, music composed for an avant-garde production of the play by Nicolaï Akimov. Following Trifonov's Concerto, Gábor Takács-Nagy conducts Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 2 in C minor, composed in 1872 and nicknamed “Little Russia”.
