Germany's Tagesspiegel describes Daniil Trifonov's interpretation of Sergei Rachmaninoff's Third Piano Concerto as being performed with "diabolical keystrokes, Apollonian calm". The Russian pianist makes his Berliner Philharmoniker debut with what is perhaps the most technically demanding piano concerto, after his Carnegie Hall debut – also with works by Rachmaninoff – was acclaimed by audiences and critics alike. Two fast-paced works by Dmitri Kabalevsky frame the New Year's Gala programme, in addition to Dvořák's Slavonic Dances, before the Berliner Philharmoniker, with Simon Rattle at the podium, take a detour to 1920s England, where William Walton's orchestral pieces "Façade" provide a touch of British humour.
