Mozart Piano Concerto No. 9, K. 271 ("Jenamy")
Liszt Prometheus 

While the young Russian prodigy Daniil Trifonov is busy becoming an international celebrity, Philadelphia Orchestra audiences already know and love him: In 2015 he made his subscription debut and recorded the Grammy-nominated Rachmaninoff Variations with the Philadelphians. He returns to perform Mozart’s “Jenamy” Concerto, as technically demanding as it is joyous. American composer Mason Bates will also be on stage activating the electronica elements of his fascinating and futuristic Alternative Energy. And speaking of energy, Prometheus stole fire from the gods and gave it to man; Beethoven and Liszt give us equally inspiring gifts in their tellings of his tale, as ballet music and symphonic poem.
