Trifonov, Nezet-Seguin & Levit are in the Gramophone - Listening Room

Bookmark and Share

In the Gramophone - Listening Room for Fri 19th October 2018 are Daniil Trifonov and Yannick Nézet-Séguin in Rachmaninov, Dvořák from Christian and Tanja Tetzlaff and Lars Vogt, John Harbison's Requiem, Schumann from Igor Levit and Liszt from Till Fellner

It's always a pleasure to hear the great Philadelphia Orchestra in the music of Rachmaninov – it's rather like hearing the LSO in Elgar or the Vienna or New York Phil in Mahler: there's a direct link and a palpable sense of belonging. Daniil Trifonov launches a survey of the piano concertos, couched in terms of a journey, and finds fine partners in the great Pennsylvania orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Also, fine pianism this week, courtesy of Igor Levit (playing Schumann).
