“Without question, the most astounding pianist of our age.”

The Times of London

Rameau: Suite in A Minor, RCT 5
Mozart: Sonata No. 12 in F Major, K. 332
Mendelssohn: Serious Variations in D Minor, Op. 54, MWV U
Beethoven: Sonata No. 29 in B-flat Major, Op. 106, “Hammerklavier”

Grammy Award-winning pianist Daniil Trifonov, Musical America’s 2019 Artist of the Year, has made a spectacular ascent in the classical music world as a solo artist, champion of the concerto repertoire, chamber and vocal collaborator and composer. Combining consummate technique with rare sensitivity and depth, his unforgettable performances are a perpetual source of awe. “He has everything and more … tenderness and also the demonic element. I never heard anything like that,” marveled pianist Martha Argerich. Experience every height of Trifonov’s artistry as he guides us through this exquisite program, moving through music of the baroque, classical and romantic periods, and culminating in Beethoven’s towering “Hammerklavier” sonata.

“Without question, the most astounding pianist of our age.” — The Times of London
