His appearance on our Debut Series in 2012 was a sold-out sensation, and in his two subsequent Jordan Hall recitals, the brilliant Daniil Trifonov never failed to astound. Be there when Trifonov makes a hotly-anticipated move to our biggest stage for music: a solo recital at Symphony Hall.
J.S. BACH: Chaconne in D minor for the Left Hand, from Partita in D minor for Unaccompanied Violin (Arranged by Johannes Brahms)
J.S. BACH: The Art of Fugue, BWV 1080
Contrapunctus VI (In French Style)
Contrapunctus VII (In Augmentation and Diminution)
Contrapunctus VIII (Triple Fugue)
Contrapunctus XIV (Triple Fugue on the name B-A-C-H)
J.S. Bach: Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, BWV 147 (arranged by Dame Myra Hess)
“Trifonov’s wide and nuanced range of colors, dynamics and expression consistently illuminated this rarely performed score. The stately fugues [had] apt poise and somber dignity yet the quicker Contrapuncti went with quicksilver rhythms and an almost jazz-like swing. Far from being austere, there was an exhilarating spontaneity to Sunday’s performance as one waited with anticipation to see what Trifonov would do with the next fugue, be it hushed intimacy or dazzling bravura.”Chicago Classical Review
“… one of the most awesome pianists of our time.”The New York Times
