Piano

Daniil Trifonov

The Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov – named ›Artist of the Year‹ in 2016 by Grammophone Magazine and »most impressive pianist of our time« by the British newspaper ›The Times‹ – has impressed on many levels: as soloist, in the concert repertoire, as a chamber musician and also as a composer. He was awarded his first Grammy in 2018.

The various points along the journey through his 2018/19 season are remarkable: leading this almost 28-year old to perform with Jaap van Zweden and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra as well as taking him on tour with Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra, for whom Trifonov is Artist in Residence. In addition, this versatile musician can also be heard in the Vienna Musikverein where – here too – he is Artist in Residence. Alongside performances of Rachmaninov’s 4th Piano Concerto with the Vienna Philharmonic – its Austrian premiere – are performances of his own piano concerto. As part of his residency with the Berlin Philharmonic, Trifonov can also be heard playing Scriabin’s Piano Concerto conducted by Andris Nelsons. With his regular partner, Matthias Goerne, Trifonov will also be giving a number of chamber music recitals. His solo programme, with works by Beethoven, Schumann and Prokofiev, is also part of his residencies in London, Vienna and Berlin, as well as in places such as New York, Milan, Luxembourg, Munich, Ljubljana, Bratislava, Zagreb and Graz. Further highlights include his return to Carnegie Hall with his long-time partner Valery Gergiev and the MET Orchestra, as well as the Deutsche Kammer­philharmonie Bremen.

Daniil Trifonov is an exclusive Artist for Deutsche Grammophon.

Conductor

Ruth Reinhardt

Ruth Reinhardt is probably one of the most exciting and versatile conductors of our time. She impresses worldwide with her enormous musical intelligence, her elegant conducting and unusual programming.

During the 21/22 season, she conducted the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre National de France, the DSO Berlin, The Konzerthausorchester Berlin and the MDR Symphony Orchestra in Leipzig, all to great acclaim. In addition, she gave her debut with the San Francisco Symphony and accompanied the Deutsche Kammer­philharmonie Bremen on tour, with Daniil Trifonov as the soloist. Concerts with the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra followed.

Born in Saarbrücken, Ruth Reinhardt received her first violin lessons at an early age and participated in the Saarland State Theatre Children’s Choir. She studied violin with Rudolf Koelman at Zurich College of the Arts, where she also began her training as a conductor with Constantin Trinks, Johannes Schlaefli and Ulrich Windfuhr. In addition, she attended a number of masterclasses given by Bernard Haitink, Michael Tilson Thomas, David Zinman, Paavo Järvi, Neeme Järvi and Marin Alsop. After graduating in Zurich, she obtained a Master’s degree in Conducting with Alan Gilbert at the Juilliard School in New York.
