Daniil Trifonov

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
A sensation before he was 20, Daniil Trifonov has proven that he is more than just a young phenomenon. This program includes works by Bach, Beethoven, and Liszt, about which the Financial Times (London) said, “It was in the Liszt … that he came into his own—a titanic performance, projected with a confidence and relish that masked the music’s ferocious technical challenges beneath a mastery of its tempestuous surges and swings of mood; and without a whiff of exaggeration."
