This February 23, 24, and 25, Susanna Mälkki leads the Los Angeles Philharmonic in a captivating program that pays tribute to the timeless works of Johannes Brahms.

Featuring the renowned pianist Daniil Trifonov, Piano Concerto No. 2 is one of Brahms’ most celebrated compositions and is considered a masterpiece of the Romantic era. A monumental work that demands virtuosity from the soloist, the distinguished Russian pianist’s performance promises to be a breathtaking display of technical skill and emotional depth. The orchestra will also play Brahms’ Academic Festival Overture, a lively and exuberant piece originally composed as a musical tribute to the University of Breslau. In addition to these works by Brahms, the program on Saturday and Sunday will also feature Enno Poppe’s Fett, a contemporary composition that invites us into an ultra-modern and immersive sound world.
