Alan Gilbert


Alan Gilbert, former Music Director of the New York Philharmonic, launches a new appointment as chief conductor designate of Hamburg’s NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra this fall, shortly after the opening of its already iconic new home. The Grammy Award–winning conductor previously served as principal guest conductor of the orchestra (then known as NDR Symphony Orchestra Hamburg) for more than a decade, and will assume the role of chief conductor in September 2019. This position follows his truly transformative eight-year tenure as Music Director of the New York Philharmonic, during which, through such key initiatives as the NY PHIL BIENNIAL, he succeeded in making the Orchestra a leader on the cultural landscape. Alan Gilbert is also conductor laureate of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic and the founder and president of Musicians for Unity. With the endorsement and guidance of the United Nations, this new organization will bring together musicians from around the world to perform in support of peace, development, and human rights.

Alan Gilbert makes regular guest appearances with orchestras including the Berlin Philharmonic, Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, The Cleveland Orchestra, Boston Symphony Orchestra, The Philadelphia Orchestra, Dresden Staatskapelle, and Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France. He has led operatic productions for Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, The Metropolitan Opera, Los Angeles Opera, Zurich Opera, Royal Swedish Opera, and Santa Fe Opera, where he was the inaugural music director.

His discography includes The Nielsen Project, a box set recorded with the New York Philharmonic, and John Adams’s Doctor Atomic, captured on DVD at The Metropolitan Opera, for which he won a Grammy Award. He received Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Music Direction in PBS’s Live From Lincoln Center broadcasts of two star-studded New York Philharmonic productions: of Sweeney Todd and Sinatra: Voice for a Century.

Alan Gilbert has received Honorary Doctor of Music degrees from the Curtis Institute of Music and Westminster Choir College, as well as Columbia University’s Ditson Conductor’s Award. He is a member of The American Academy of Arts & Sciences, and was named an Officier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government. At The Juilliard School, he is the first holder of the William Schuman Chair in Musical Studies and serves as Director of Conducting and Orchestral Studies. After giving the annual Royal Philharmonic Society Lecture on Orchestras in the 21st Century: A New Paradigm during the New York Philharmonic’s EUROPE / SPRING 2015 tour, he received a 2015 Foreign Policy Association Medal for his commitment to cultural diplomacy.

Danill Trifonov by Vadim Shults


Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov received acclaim when he won First Prize at both the Tchaikovsky and Rubinstein Competitions in 2011 at the age of 20. The 2016–17 season brings the release of Transcendental, a double album that represents Mr. Trifonov’s third title as an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist, and is the first time that Liszt’s complete concert études have been recorded for the label. Winner of Gramophone’s 2016 Artist of the Year award, his upcoming performances include Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto with Riccardo Muti in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s 125th anniversary gala finale. Having scored his second Grammy Award nomination with Rachmaninoff Variations, he performs Rachmaninoff in his Berlin Philharmonic debut led by Simon Rattle at the orchestra’s New Year’s Eve concerts, scheduled to air live in cinemas throughout Europe. Mr. Trifonov also performs Rachmaninoff in his debuts with the Melbourne and Sydney Symphony Orchestras, returns to the Los Angeles Philharmonic with Gustavo Dudamel and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, and appears in the Munich Philharmonic’s Rachmaninoff Cycle tour with longtime collaborator Valery Gergiev. He is performing Mozart with the New York Philharmonic, Cleveland, and Philadelphia orchestras, and with the Dresden Staatskapelle at home and at the Salzburg Easter Festival and London’s BBC Proms. Other engagements include Zurich’s Tonhalle Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Mahler Chamber Orchestra on tour, Houston Symphony, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, and the Filarmonica della Scala on tour with Riccardo Chailly. An accomplished composer, Mr. Trifonov reprises his own concerto in Kansas City. Recital engagements include debuts at London’s Barbican and Melbourne’s Recital Centre and appearances in Berlin, Vienna, Florence, Madrid, Oslo, Moscow, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and — for the fourth consecutive year — New York’s Carnegie Hall. He gives duo recitals with his former teacher, pianist Sergei Babayan, in Princeton and Sarasota, and will return to the Tanglewood, Verbier, Baden-Baden, and Salzburg festivals. Mr. Trifonov’s honors include Third Prize in Warsaw’s Chopin Competition, First Prize in Tel Aviv’s Rubinstein Competition, and both First Prize and Grand Prix in Moscow’s Tchaikovsky Competition, all in the 2010–11 season, and Franco Abbiati Prize for Best Instrumental Soloist (2013).
