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.
This performance represents a rescheduling of Mr. Trifonov’s canceled March 2020 recital, which was to feature Bach’s The Art of Fugue alongside arrangements of Bach. He has changed his performance program for Fall 2020. All tickets to the performance in the Spring of 2020 have been returned, and new tickets may be purchased in a subscription package for the 2020-2021 season.

“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
