Sergej Prokofjev Piano Concerto No. 3
Gustav Mahler Symphony No. 1 'Titan'

Daniele Gatti and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra are pursuing their Mahler series with the First Symphony. At the premiere in 1889, the audience was ill-prepared for Mahler’s bold orchestration, but the symphony gradually gained in popularity. The Concertgebouw Orchestra, conducted by the composer himself, gave the Dutch premiere in 1903. Mahler was absolutely delighted, exclaiming, ‘The musical culture in this country is stupendous! The way the people can just listen!’

Daniil Trifonov is perhaps the most intriguing new star in the pianists’ firmament. The young Russian is making his first solo appearance with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Prokofiev’s highly contrastive Third Piano Concerto.
