Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1
Clyne This Moment
Still Symphony No. 4 (“Autochthonous”)

From the opening notes of Brahms’s First Piano Concerto you know you’re in for a thrill. It’s the perfect showcase for the immensely talented Daniil Trifonov. Capping the program is a mood-boosting, melodic work by the great American composer William Grant Still, who wrote his Symphony No. 4 as a tribute to the optimism, energy, humor, and warmth of the American people. Anna Clyne’s This Moment is a “meditative reflection on [Zen Master and peace activist] Thich Nhat Hanh’s words ‘The practice of peace and reconciliation is one of the most vital and artistic of human actions.’” The piece is also inspired by Japanese and Buddhist calligraphy.
