Daniil Trifonov, Piano

Hommage à Chopin

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
The silken legato line, glittering ornamentation, melancholy sighs, and sheer brio of dazzling pianism define Chopin’s music. The sensational young pianist Daniil Trifonov takes a deep dive into the Polish genius’s world and the music he inspired. Trifonov performs Chopin favorites, selections from Rachmaninoff’s dazzling variations, and more. The beauty and power of Chopin’s music is eternal, his influence inestimable. Trifonov shows us why.
