In the organizer's words:
"Meeting Point New York"Daniil Trifonov | Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia | Jakub Hrůša: Gershwin | Rachmaninoff

Daniil Trifonov has made New York his home for many years. But he shares not only his residence in the American metropolis, but also his Russian roots with George Gershwin, alias Jacob Gershovitz, whose parents once emigrated to America from St. Petersburg. Gershwin's famous "Concerto in F" has clear jazz overtones and was the first work he orchestrated completely himself. The premiere in 1925 at Carnegie Hall was a huge success for the composer, who was just 27 years old. The same is true of Sergei Rachmaninoff's "Symphonic Dances," which was written as his last work in 1940 in exile on Long Island. The fact that the saxophone is allowed to emerge as a solo instrument in the first movement is certainly no coincidence.
