LA Phil Aug 10

August 10
Mälkki Conducts Brahms

Daniil Trifonov, “without question the most astounding pianist of our age” (The Times of London), conjures his unique style and technique to perform the longest major Romantic piano concerto, Brahms’ epic second. The piece is synonymous with the greatest music of its era for its grand yet intimate delicacies. Susanna Mälkki leads the LA Phil in another Brahms offering, his jubilant Academic Festival Overture, as well as Fett on Saturday and Sunday by German composer Enno Poppe, who describes his innovative music as “dented nature.”
