Opening Night: Daniil Trifonov & Valery Gergiev at the Isarphilharmonie

Opening the doors of the Isarphilharmonie for the very first time, the Munich Philharmonic welcomes audiences with a diverse programme made up of Viennese classics and contemporary works. To celebrate, principal conductor Valery Gergiev has invited Daniil Trifonov, whose gift to the occasion is an entire Beethoven cycle, beginning with the lyrical Piano Concerto No. 4. But no new home is complete without new music. The programme also includes two world premieres, one from the East composed by a veteran of Russian modernism, Rodion Shchedrin; and one from the West, written by the French organist and composer Thierry Escaich. Together with Henri Dutilleux’s elaborately orchestrated Métaboles and Maurice Ravel’s Suite No. 2 from Daphnis et Chloé, the Munich Philharmonic warms their new home and decorates their new space with a vibrant palette of orchestral colours.
