Performance Details

Yannick Nézet-Séguin Conductor 
Daniil Trifonov Piano

Coleman Umoja, Anthem for Unity
Liszt Piano Concerto No. 1
Dvořák Symphony No. 8

Valerie Coleman’s Umoja (meaning “unity” in Swahili) beautifully transforms Afro-Cuban, jazz, and classical themes into a powerful anthem. Franz Liszt composed his innovative Piano Concerto No. 1 over more than two decades, continuing to revise the piece even after its premiere. Daniil Trifonov’s unparalleled virtuosity demonstrates why Liszt’s work has stood the test of time. Dvořák’s Eighth Symphony concludes the concert on an optimistic note, brimming with vibrant melodies and evocations of the Bohemian countryside.
