Cristian Macelaru makes his New York Philharmonic debut this week in five concerts with the 24-year-old piano dynamo Daniil Trifonov. In performances at Lincoln Center’s newly named David Geffen Hall (formerly Avery Fisher Hall), Macelaru conducts a symphonic poem by Rachmaninoff, Isle of the Dead, and two of Rachmaninoff’s most well-known concertos, Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini and the ever-popular Second Piano Concerto. This program is part of the New York Philharmonic’s three-week Rachmaninoff Festival that features Daniil Trifonov. Expect fireworks between Cristian Macelaru and Daniil Trifonov who make a stunning combination!
The November 12 performance will be broadcast live on WQXR, New York’s classical station, at 105.9 FM and www.wqxr.org at 7:30pm.
