    Piano Concerto No. 3
“the most astounding pianist of our age” — The Times of London on Trifonov

Oft mentioned in the same breath as composer/performer geniuses Liszt and Scriabin, the astonishing young virtuoso Daniil Trifonov, Gramophone’s 2016 Artist of the Year, will transport us to another dimension with his interpretation of perhaps the most famous composer/pianist of all: Rachmaninoff. Maestro Tausk and the VSO set the scene with Russian mystical madman Alexander Scriabin’s ethereal Poème de l’extase (Poem of Ecstasy).

This concert is part of the 2019-2020 Masterworks Diamond series.
