A blazing brass fanfare summons the fateful forces of Tchaikovsky’s Fourth into being, and these inescapable powers rear back for one final, deafening roar in the symphony’s earth-shattering finale. Daniil Trifonov, “without question the most astounding young pianist of our age” (The Times), applies his mind-blowing artistry to Prokofiev’s incendiary concerto. Plus, the World Première of TSO Artist in Residence Samy Moussa’s Symphony No. 2, commissioned by the TSO.
