Penny Gore presents a week of concerts with Sir Simon Rattle conducting the Berlin Philharmonic. Today's performance took place last New Year's Eve at the Berlin Philharmonie.
An exciting programme and a brilliant soloist - the Berlin Philharmonic's 2016 New Year's Eve concert under Sir Simon Rattle had all the ingredients to put the audience in a party mood. Daniil Trifonov stands out as the soloist in Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 3, a work of extreme virtuosity that demands truly outstanding skills of the pianist.
