Daniil Trifonov plays Mason Bates

Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra

All hell breaks loose in this concert with new music by Bates and Roukens, two of the most compelling modern-day composers.

'Stunning. Staggering. Stupendous.’ The Bachtrack reviewer ran out of superlatives to describe the wizardry of Daniil Trifonov at the 2021 premiere of Mason Bates’s Piano Concerto. He will again be the soloist when this hypnotic work is performed in Rotterdam. Joey Roukens – who never fails to raise the adrenaline – tops off this concert with his brand new First Symphony. Stunning indeed.
