Carnegie Hall Recital by Daniil Trifonov to be Webcast Live on medici.tv on Saturday, February 9 at 8 PM
Sold Out Concert Includes a Program of Beethoven, Schumann, and Prokofiev
(New York, NY, February 4, 2019)—Carnegie Hall today announced that this weekend’s sold out performance by acclaimed pianist Daniil Trifonov on Saturday, February 9 at 8:00 p.m. in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, will be webcast live, free of charge, to a worldwide audience on medici.tv and carnegiehall.org/medici.
The evening’s program includes Beethoven’s Andante in F Major, WoO 57 ("Andante favori") and Piano Sonata No. 18 in E-flat Major, Op. 31, No. 3; Schumann’s Bunte Blätter and Presto passionate; and Prokofiev’s Piano Sonata No. 8 in B-flat Major.
Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov—winner of Gramophone’s 2016 Artist of the Year award—has made a spectacular ascent in the world of classical music as a solo artist, a champion of the concerto repertoire, a collaborator at the keyboard in chamber music and song, and a composer. The Times(UK) calls Trifonov “without question the most astounding pianist of our age.”
He launched the New York Philharmonic’s 2018–2019 season, playing Ravel’s Concerto in G for the opening-night gala under incoming Music Director Jaap van Zweden before rejoining the orchestra the following night for Beethoven’s mighty “Emperor” Concerto. He revisited the Ravel, both on tour with the London Symphony and Sir Simon Rattle, and during a residency at Vienna’s Musikverein that also saw him give the Austrian premiere of his own Piano Concerto. Similarly, the “Emperor” is the vehicle for further collaborations with the London Symphony and Michael Tilson Thomas, the National Symphony and Gianandrea Noseda, the Cincinnati Symphony and Louis Langrée, and the Cleveland Orchestra and Franz Welser-Möst, with whom the pianist embarks on a tour of Asia. Last season, Daniil Trifonov was the youngest artist ever to curate a Perspectives series at Carnegie Hall.
